5th Annual Global Cyber Security Forum
As per the Global Security Index 2018 by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Lebanon is ranked 17 among the regional Arab countries and 124 globally.The Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) is a survey that measures the commitment of Member States to cybersecurity in order to raise awareness. The GCI revolves around the ITU Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA) and its five pillars (legal, technical, organizational, capacity building and cooperation)
In order to ensure the Lebanese government succeeds in its digital initiatives, they have to implement the best possible strategies to protect themselves from any possible cyber vulnerabilities. As per the Telecom Regulatory Authority of Lebanon, the country is in the process of establishing stringent policies and legal frameworks in terms of cybersecurity and associated governance. The Lebanese government along with Banque Du Liban had issued policy guidelines for the entities in Lebanon with a great deal of focus on cyber security, but implementing it and measuring its effectiveness is still in its infancy. Clearly, the country cannot afford a cyberattack at this given point of time and needs to protect its data perimetersand citizen's rights with utmost priority.
However bracing the entire country and its businesses (private & public) from cyber threats is a herculean task. "Thus the Prime Minister of Lebanon Mr. Saad Hariri nominated a Committee with representatives from Ministries of Telecommunication, Economy and Commerce, Industry, Education, Justice, Defense and the Council of Ministers, as well as security agencies and academia to prepare a comprehensive cyber strategy".
Considering this, the Ministry of Public Works And Transport, Directorate General of Civil Aviation and Civil Aviation Safety Center of Lebanon has taken a bold step to address the key challenges faced in Lebanon due to cyber threats, by hosting the first cyber security conference in Lebanon in collaboration with Explore Exhibitions & Conference LLP.
Being the first cyber security conference in Lebanon, the event is poised to bring together over 250+ stakeholders from public and private enterprise from across Lebanon who will witness presentations experts carrying decades of experience in fighting cyber crimes, whilst also standing a chance to meet internationally renowned solution providers.
