With the increasing number and frequency of sophisticated attacks on the banking sector in the region, the need to develop a comprehensive cyber security programme, outlined with the right levels of governance, risk and compliance standards is a top priority for all national and commercial banks, apart from FIIs and financial institutions. Out of all the attacks in the UAE, about 35% are targeted towards the banking community which makes it a priority for banks and financial institutions to optimise cyber resilience and enhance incident response preparedness to protect data and mitigate risks associated with money laundering and fraud.

The Cyber Security in Banking conference is taking place from 4-5 September 2016 at the Dusit Thani, Dubai, UAE, to address key cyber security solutions with regards to data confidentiality and privacy, building a strong shield against persistent DDoS (Data Denial of Service) attacks, securing protection of electronic payment gateways, managing shared security services with the aim of protecting all customers apart from implementing and complying with the robust policies of the Central Bank, UAE. The event will have representatives from national, Islamic and commercial banks in the GCC as well as top global cyber security experts to share their best practices on making the region and the world a safer place by ensuring cyber security and protection of banking IT infrastructure.
