BANGALORE, India - Sept. 28, 2022 - PRLog -- It is widely known that mega-events have grown to be significant targets for a variety of criminal and terrorist activity. The size and stature of events enhance it all from the threat of physical violence to the infringement of important records. Keeping networks and people secure is one of the biggest international concerns facing all countries in this era of increasingly aggressive cyberattacks of all kinds. To address these issues, Qatar is stepping up its cyber security initiatives and collaborating with partners around the world to ensure a safe and open cyberspace. As Qatar prepares to become the first Middle Eastern country to host the FIFA World Cup, like most developed countries, it remains vulnerable to cyberattacks given its high level of technology adoption and smartphone penetration rate.

Some of the most sensitive information related to staging large-scale events is that which we associate with physical and terrorist threats, venue plans, evacuation routes, security systems, and emergency services intelligence. The vast array of people who were involved in organising the games is also important to note; when you take into account the personnel, builders, service providers, and members of the organising body, there are thousands of potential "leak points" in the data. Each person has access to or knowledge of sensitive information, and if they don't handle it appropriately, mega events become an appealing target for cybercriminals. Financial, political, and physical risks are all made feasible by cyber-attacks that steal valuable data or gain unauthorised access to systems. Attacks maybe directed at the hosts or vendors of the event, as well as attendees whose data was gathered and processed during the event planning process.

The National Cyber Security Strategy calls for the development of local knowledge and a homegrown startup ecosystem, and the Qatari government is promoting these developments besides collaborating with large global companies. The market predictions, which indicate that Qatar has the fastest-growing market for security services in the area, are likely the most encouraging factor for local entrepreneurs and local branches of international corporations.
