DarkMatter has announced its participation at the forthcoming World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC) 2016, taking place between 5th to 7th December, 2016 at the ART Rotana Hotel, Amwaj Islands, Manama, Bahrain.
Celebrating its 23rd year, the conference theme this year is “Economic Uncertainties: Vigilance & Growth”. WIBC 2016 is aimed at enabling Islamic finance to converge, strengthen and grow as an ecosystem whilst equipping leaders with breakthrough insights to navigate the complexity of the global financial system, and securing digital assets is part of that mandate.
As the Cyber Security Innovation Partner of the event, DarkMatter will emphasise the need for financial institutions to assume heightened security postures, with Harshul Joshi, Senior Vice President of Cyber Governance, Risk and Compliance set to make a keynote address considering ‘Cyber Security Challenges Facing the Banking Industry in the Middle East’.
Rabih Dabboussi, Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Business Development, DarkMatter, is set to offer his insights on why ‘Cyber Security is an imperative in the Digital Banking Era’, during a presentation to the assembled audience, where he will focus his comments on the requirement for the banking sector to develop a strong cyber security posture as institutions continue to adopt new technologies and advanced processes at a fast pace.
“The banking and finance community is well aware of the cyber threats their industry attracts, and our interest in being present at this important meeting of Islamic financiers is to bring home the message that there are technologies, tools, processes and specialists who can help them navigate this potentially hazardous landscape,” said Dabboussi.
