Email and data security company Mimecast Limited, has said it will address the growing issue of targeted cyberattacks at this year's Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC), taking place from 1st to 3rd May 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

According to Mimecast, it will highlight the continuous challenges organisations face in defending against malicious attachments, dangerous file types, impersonation attacks and spam to help provide customers with cyber resilience for email.

"A defence-only security strategy does not protect against the level and volume of advanced attacks that lead to financial and intellectual property loss, unplanned downtime and decreased productivity," said Brandon Bekker, managing director, Mimecast MEA.

"We encourage our customers to embrace a cyber resilience for email strategy that empowers them to secure, preserve and continue the flow of information via email. Despite investments in defence, attackers continue to innovate, developing advanced email-borne threats that are no match for defence systems, added Bekker.

He said Mimecast will use the region's largest security conference to educate IT decision makers about the need to provide comprehensive security controls before, continuity during, and automated recovery after an attack.

The company said by showcasing its full-range of advanced email security and data protection services, including new enhancements to targeted threat protection, Mimecast will highlight the importance of building a cyber resilience strategy in an evolving cyber threat landscape.
