GISEC 2022: Virsec to Show Off Deterministic Protection Platform and Virsec Security Platform

Published

on

Rahil Ghaffar, the Regional Director for the Middle East and Africa at Virsec, says the company plans to continually invest in the region to further strengthen its progress

Are you participating in GISEC 2022?
Yes, Virsec is looking forward to participating in GISEC 2022 this year.

What is your theme of participation at the event?
As one of the largest and most awaited cybersecurity conferences in the Arab region, we want to show our growth at GISEC 2022, and how our growth supports that of our customers. In this line, we will be showcasing our recently launched Deterministic Protection Platform (DPP).

DPP is the next evolution of our company’s flagship and award-winning Virsec Security Platform (VSP), the first solution that could eradicate threats to the software workload at runtime in real-time. DPP not only ensures better protection against all known and unknown threats to software workloads, but it also reduces threat actor dwell time from minutes to milliseconds, with true protection and runtime observability.

Another theme is awareness – we aim to provide our customers and partners with the knowledge of true runtime protection, and the need for it, allowing them to understand how DPP by Virsec makes security response obsolete by improving the protection that conventional, probabilistic solutions currently offer.

What is the general agenda / planned list of activities at the event?
Virsec is growing in the Middle Eastern market and plans to continually invest in the region to further strengthen our progress and provide the best-in-class cybersecurity to customers. With this in mind, our agenda for GISEC is ideally to interact and engage with more Channel Partners offering the value proposition and demonstrate how Virsec can strengthen and elevate their security offerings.

We also look forward to engaging with Top Level Executives, as well as clients and customers, sharing our thought leadership message around the need for deterministic protection at runtime to secure their software and critical infrastructure. We are also greatly anticipating our CEO, Dave Furneaux, and Bobby Gupta, Senior Vice President and MD of International Business, who will attend GISEC this year, where they will be interacting with key customers at the exhibition, as well as driving media engagements.

What according to you are the challenges faced by CISOs and Cybersecurity experts today?
We all have seen a huge surge of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks during the pandemic, and the rate at which they continue to occur is relentless and only seems to grow by the day. Challenges faced at this point are typically in need of a solution that not only protects the known negatives, but also unknown Zero-day attacks. Ultimately, solutions should be able to protect both known and unknown vulnerabilities from being exploited.

However, we must keep in mind that there are other associated factors that influence this, such as current solution(s) often resulting in false positives and the need for constant human intervention to detect and protect businesses. Human error is one of the major causes of breaches, especially considering the present day when stress levels are at an extreme high with too much information from too many sources.

To avoid and solve this, there needs to be a complete shift in the approach when dealing with such sophisticated attacks. We need a solution that does not only detect, but also automatically protect, and with extreme precision – without human intervention.

Will you be running any offline/online engagements alongside the event?
We aim to engage with customers, clients, and partners pre-and post event over networking sessions. Our senior management, experts, and executives will be available at stand D-55 to interact with visitors and professionals at the event, to discuss the evolving threat landscape, and demonstrate how Virsec’s solutions, namely DPP, can equip organizations with the skills required to overcome and prevent these cyberthreats from impacting their business.

GISEC GLOBAL launches CISO Circle

Published

on

GISEC GLOBAL, the most connected and influential cybersecurity exhibition and conference in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), has launched its CISO Circle platform for chief information security officers, government leaders, and cybersecurity experts. CISO Circle, the new invite-only community launched by Dubai World Trade Centre, the organisers of GISEC GLOBAL, will give regional industry experts the opportunity to strategically discuss pressing cybersecurity issues with their peers, through discussion that will encourage proactive collaboration and information sharing.

GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will deep-dive into the most pressing cybersecurity challenges affecting enterprises and governments in the post-pandemic era, including the dangers posed by state-sponsored hackers, organised hacking groups, and insider threats, all of which now represent a constant menace in the digital age. HE Dr. Mohamed Al Kuwaiti, Head of Cyber Security, UAE Government, said, “The UAE Cyber Security council fully supports GISEC’s initiative of creating an InfoSec leaders inner circle with the mission to discuss key challenges to help build cyber resilience of businesses in the UAE.”

The first CISO Circle meeting will be hosted alongside the upcoming edition of GITEX GLOBAL, the super-connector technology event organised by Dubai World Trade Centre taking place from 10th-14th October. Organised in partnership with the UAE’s most influential cyber entities to curate and prioritise regional cybersecurity agendas, including the UAE Cybersecurity Council, Dubai Electronic Security Center, the Telecommunications & Digital Government Regulatory Authority, and Dubai Police, GISEC GLOBAL 2023, hosted from 14th-16th March, will be a meeting point for the cybersecurity ecosystem that unites the industry’s leading brands and minds during three days of unparalleled conference sessions, keynotes, partner seminars, and interactive sessions.

Cybersecurity experts on the GISEC GLOBAL CISO Circle:

Ahmed Al Zarouni, GISEC GLOBAL advisory board member, said, “GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle is a significant component of the widespread cybersecurity culture, which is crucial in advancing the technological requirements of modern lifestyles and services. GISEC GLOBAL looks forward to growing and supporting the region’s cybersecurity community and ecosystem.”

Amer Sharaf, Director, Compliance, Support, And Alliances, Dubai Electronic Security Center (DESC), said, “GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will play an important role in driving thought leadership in regional cybersecurity. At a time where information sharing and collaboration between governments is essential in mitigating threats, GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle will provide opportunities for cybersecurity leaders to strengthen their security posture through knowledge sharing.”

Fuad Al Ansari, GISEC GLOBAL advisory board member, said, “As malicious actors continue to exploit cybersecurity weaknesses for their own gain, it is now more important than ever for CISOs to collaborate in order to enhance their own knowledge to increase the defences of their organisation. The GISEC GLOBAL CISO Circle will actively support the region’s cybersecurity community with information that will be vital in fending off increasingly sophisticated attacks.”

Hussain AlKhalsan, CISO, Zand, said, “As the cyberthreat landscape continues to evolve, CISOs are facing an increasingly demanding and varied volume of threats. Interaction between industry peers is hugely valuable for chief information security officers, and I look forward to participating in GISEC GLOBAL’s CISO Circle’s initiatives, which will give CISOs important insight into critical cybersecurity issues.”
