Minister to patronise SmartSec Conference

The Bahrain Technical Society (PTEC) has announced that it will organise the first edition of the SmartSec Conference for Information Security in Bahrain in cooperation with WorkSmart for Organising Exhibitions and Conferences, under the patronage of the Minister of Electricity and Water Affairs Dr. Abdulhussein Mirza on September 4 and 5.

The conference will discuss the most important issues related to information security, cyber security, and how to settle the latest global applications in the field of ICT security, in line with the accelerated trend of public and private sector institutions in Bahrain to use new technologies such as cloud computing, identify challenges to enterprise data protection plans, and defend them against hacking or tampering attempts.

The conference will be attended by a number of specialised speakers in information security from Bahrain, the region and the world. The conference will include a number of workshops discussing technical topics related to this field.

The event also highlights the fact that information security is an integral part of security in its comprehensive sense, which includes economic and social security as well as bridging all technical gaps that may allow intruders to exploit the data and information of institutions on the Internet in the process of piracy, extortion and harm.
