The UAE Cybersecurity Council and Dubai Electronic Security Centre support the all new Cybersecurity Lab

Cyber criminals have changed the way they attack businesses. Security and IT teams must also adapt and learn to mitigate risk. With 6 out of 10 companies suffering some form of cyber-attack in 2020 and a staggering 64% increase of email threats and attacks in 2021, digital and cybersecurity has never been more important for businesses.

Intersec 2022 has developed a program of high level, interactive content and features as the digital and cybersecurity sector rapidly grows and continues to change. With 8 out of 10 of our visitors have expressed a strong interest to purchase and source products related to protecting their digital assets.

The Cybersecurity lab with its range of expert speakers will deliver presentations and discussions around the latest challenges and threats. This includes countering the threat of cyber-attacks against critical infrastructure and organisations as well as developing the use of social media to collect open-source information and digital evidence.

The Booming Middle East Market

The Middle East cybersecurity pre-COVID 19 market size is projected to grow from USD 16.1 billion in 2020 to USD 28.7 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.2%, whereas the post-COVID 19 market size is projected to grow from USD 15.6 billion in 2020 to USD 29.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 13.8% during the forecast period. The increased sophistication of cyberattacks across heavy industries to result in financial and reputational losses, stringent government regulations, and cyberattacks due to the proliferation of digitalization are anticipated to be the major market drivers.
