Conference Chairman

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you all to inaugural edition of the CyberX Saudi Summit to be held virtually on 4 – 5 October 2021.

Technological innovation and adoption is at the heart of our journey to continued transformation under the guidelines of Saudi Vision 2030. As we continue to innovate, we must ensure these innovations and advancements are being used ethically and for the greater good of the society.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution ushered us into an era of automation, Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning, and enabled us to do business without boundaries. However, the advancement and evolution of technology has also enabled evolution and sophistication of cyberattacks. Threat vectors are increasingly becoming sophisticated and innovative. In this digital-first world, where technology has now become a necessity, the importance of cybersecurity can never be overemphasized.

Bringing together leading voices, thought leaders, and industry experts from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the GCC, and the world, CyberX Saudi provides a unique opportunity to have in-depth, multi-disciplinary discussions about the most pressing security issues in the current landscape, identify solutions that create real cybersecurity resilience, and unwrap unparalleled opportunities for growth and investment. CyberX Saudi aims to become a platform that the community can come back to year on year.

I hope you join us in our effort to create a successful dialogue for the cybersecurity industry. The Organising Committee and I look forward to meeting you this October.
