“With the growth of the Middle East, there is an increasing need for cyber security. The region, with its governmental authority and companies, significantly works on adopting “smart” technologies to its infrastructure. He adds.
But this increases the exposure to cyber security threats, where the “smart” initiatives require using “smart” devices which will put its users under the cyber forensics. For this reason, we focus on offering the various “smart” initiatives emerging in the region with cyber defense mechanisms.
We seek to prepare our clients to take advantage of the “smart” future that cannot be achieved without an efficient system of cyber-security. Dohaji called for the need to spread awareness about the importance of information security intelligence, pointing out that “LogRhythm” enables organizations around the world to detect, respond to & neutralize the cyber threats.
