The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is rapidly developing and diversifying its economy while preparing to achieve the milestones of Vision 2030. Multiple initiatives are being launched to realise the plan such as digitisation, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain. Sophisticated digital infrastructure is integral to today’s advanced industrial activities and requires significant investment in cybersecurity, skills and education, security awareness and regulation.
To help address and tackle relevant IT, OT and IoT cyber security challenges, Spire Solutions will participate at the Cyber Defence Summit (CDS) and the 2nd Saudi International Exhibition and Conference for Internet of Things (Saudi IoT) on the 13th and 14th of February 2019 in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“Spire is honored to support this conference as the ‘Powered By’ Sponsor and participate as ‘IoT Security Partner’. This top-level sponsorship category is an indication of the strategic importance that the Saudi market represents for Spire, and our overall continuous commitment to the region,” said Avinash Advani, CEO, Spire Solutions.
During the summit Spire Solutions will be covering key technology areas represented by leading global vendors including Rapid7 for vulnerability management and risk assessment, Endgame for EDR and threat hunting, Mimecast and EmailAuth for email security, Human Firewall for security awareness and training, Finite State for IoT security, CyberX for ICS/SCADA/OT security, CyberSponse for SOAR, and Digital Shadows and EclecticIQ for threat intelligence.
“We have been doing business in Saudi Arabia for almost a decade and have recently opened an office in Riyadh with deployment of local sales and technical resources on-the-ground, thus the Cyber Defence Summit 2019 is the event to accelerate our business development activities in the country,” said Advani.
