After the monumental success of its record-breaking 11th edition in 2023, the Middle East’s largest and most impactful cybersecurity event is rallying the world’s attention on the industry’s biggest collaborative movement, as it aims to decode and demystify the biggest cyber threats amid the great global digital upheaval.
GISEC Global 2024 (www.gisec.ae) will return to the Dubai World Trade Centre from 23-25 April 2024, gathering the world’s foremost cybersecurity companies, InfoSec professionals, CISOs, cyber hygiene decision makers and government leaders to rise against the ever-evolving threat of the dark cyber-criminal underworld seeking to devastate critical infrastructure or pilfer company accounts.
The 12th edition of the annual three-day cyber super-connector will build on the unstoppable momentum from 2023, when it welcomed 500 cybersecurity brands and 14,837 attendees from 127 countries, its double-digit year-on-year growth in-line with a Middle East cybersecurity market that, according to analysts Frost & Sullivan, will grow annually by 20 per cent over the next seven years to value $31 billion by 2030.
As governments and corporates march forward with bold digital transformation agendas to improve lives and boost bottom lines, enhancing cyber resilience has risen to the top of boardroom discussions to protect the proliferation of critical data and digital assets.
GISEC Global 2024 will ‘take the attack to the attackers’, presenting the latest solutions for buyers across diverse sectors, from aviation, construction, energy, education, and finance, to government, healthcare, hospitality, retail, and telecommunications. Hundreds of top digital security and transformation companies have already confirmed their participation at the region’s leading pureplay cybersecurity event, which is organised by the Dubai World Trade Centre, and features its extensive conference programme along with the GISEC CISO Circle, unlocking the biggest conversations and strategies shaping the modern cybersecurity agenda.
World record-breaking cyber challenges and hackathons are also set to return, gathering thousands of ethical hackers and students from across the world to face off against and find solutions to, real-world threats.
