Cyber training: the key to building strong cybersecurity

Amid international turbulence, cyberattacks are on the rise. As cybercrime impact is expected to reach $15 trillion this year, the ability of companies and governments across the globe to resist digital threats is ever more important. Technical means of defense are essential, though not enough. The human factor remains one of the weakest spots in company security. Organizations need to enhance the skills of their cybersecurity specialists, expand the practical knowledge of technical experts, raise cyber awareness among employees. In this regard, cybersecurity training can help to increase resilience to cyberattacks.
Cyber Polygon, an international cybersecurity training, will take place during MENA ISC. Corporate teams from all over the world will participate in the event and test their skills in repelling cyberattacks.
