Cyber security firm, DarkMatter, is at GITEX Technology Week 2016 to highlight smart city cyber security and solutions.

The company is also the Cyber Security Innovation Partner of GITEX 2016.

This year, GITEX’s theme is ‘Reimaging New Realities - Cutting Edge Technologies and Experiences’, which DarkMater identifies with.

CEO Faisal Al Bannai, DarkMatter, says: “As cyber threats become more numerous and sophisticated, they risk the development of smart cities and Internet of Things environments should these ecosystems become compromised. DarkMatter is advising that cyber security resilience be placed at the centre of digital developments in order to ensure the integrity of digital networks and all parties connected to them.”

Al Bannai adds: “We consider events like GITEX as being instrumental in raising awareness about the evolving cyber threat landscape, and what steps can be taken to develop a stronger defence posture against threat players.”

A recent EMEA 360 Boardroom Survey conducted by Deloitte, canvassed 271 non-executive directors across 20 countries in Europe, Middle East and Africa, found growing awareness and higher priority being given to cyber security issues, as well as more focus on innovation and digitisation.
