As one of the top global trade markets, the Middle East has been quick to embrace future technologies and comprehensive countermeasures to fortify cybersecurity across the region.

While businesses in the region are currently addressing the immediate apprehension of cash flow and liquidity, there also needs to be a heightened focus towardsprivacy and cyber security. New and evolving threats are on the rise and organizations need to be constantly vigilant to ensure continuity as well as positive scalability.
