The company also highlighted that they aim to establish a good line of communication with customers in the region about their main security concerns. “We work very closely with the UAE government, and we believe our services and solutions will benefit organisations in various industries. DarkMatter can provide end-to-end solutions from managed security services, cybersecurity solutions to product advisory,” said Harshul Joshi, SVP, Cyber Governance, Risk and Compliance, DarkMatter.
Joshi highlighted that the industry has definitely come a long way when it comes to the cybersecurity space, however, he noted that at the industry grows so does the threat landscape. “Everyday numerous new threats are springing in the industry,” he said. “When organisations should keep in mind is that the key to a sound cybersecurity strategy are three things – people, process and technology. It’s not enough that you buy a big shiny box that promises to bring you protection you need, you must ensure that you have the right people and processes to make that certain technology work.”
The DarkMatter security leader also urged organisations to recognise that people and processes within the company is equally important as the technology. He also emphasised that one of the major challenges faced by companies in the Middle East region is critical infrastructure. “An organisation’s cybersecurity leader must ensure that they have very clear risk assessment strategy, at the same time they need to focus on these four aspects – prevent, detect, respond and recover. They should put equal focus on these four aspects to achieve a good cyber defence.”
