As all the nations are progressing in cybersecurity, UAE is a prominent one in the race. Recently, UAE's Cyber Security Council has urged the creation of a Center of Excellence to prevent increasing hacking attacks.
Mohamed Al Kuwaiti, Head of Cyber Security, UAE Government, spoke at the Global Cybersecurity Forum in Riyadh and stated a need for constantly evolving plans for cyberattacks, as adversaries are becoming more experienced and acquiring momentum through better processes and procedures.
Further, Mohamed Al Kuwaiti also stated that cross-border collaboration is happening to tackle cybercrime. He claims to be partnering, modifying or exchanging information, but it is hand-in-hand, shoulder-to-shoulder work from an operational and technical standpoint.
Paul Griswold, the chief product officer at US conglomerate Honeywell, also claimed that he had witnessed notable advanced change since he joined the cybersecurity world in 1999. He said, "As time has passed, there is much more collaboration, there are relationships between vendors, vendors have relationships with governments, and there is a great deal of information sharing."
