THE ONLY EVENT IN THE WORLD TARGETING CORPORATE BUYERS FROM THE ARAB WORLD AND SOLUTION PROVIDERS OF IT AND CYBER SECURITY.

This is not a conference or an exhibition. This is an exclusive, closed-door, congress between Solution Providers of Cyber Security technology and hand-picked Corporate Buyers looking for partners to help them protect their business from any potential cyber threats.

According to a new market research MarketsandMarkets, The Middle East Cyber Security market size is expected to grow from USD 11.38 billion in 2017 to USD 22.14 billion by 2022, at an estimated Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.2%.

Yet at the same time, a staggering 56% of companies in the Middle East have suffered losses greater than $500,000 as a result of cyber-attacks in the last 12 months, how will your business continue to stay digitally agile without compromising on security?

As partners in the information security community we have all been challenged in 2017 with the onslaught of DDoS and phishing campaigns with payloads that have included credential stealing malware, destructive malware and ransomware. In addition, to the evolving threat landscape, we are challenged with supporting our corporate strategies that look to leverage advancing technology and services that expand our perimeter boundaries and place a greater demand for protecting the information that our customers and fellow employees entrust us with.

From a governance perspective, we are seeing increased government and industry regulations and our corporate boards are demanding greater visibly into our programs. These challenges are expanding the responsibilities placed upon us as security professionals and requiring us to ensure we are following best practices.

The Gulf Congress on Cyber Security is the first event of its kind. It will bring together Corporate Buyers of IT Cyber Security products and solutions from the Arab World to meet with pre-selected solution providers from all over the world.

GCCS will allow you to meet, face to face, with the biggest and most qualified Buyers of IT security in the Arab World in one place, over two days.

We bring the Buyers for you.

We qualify them for you and we arrange for you to meet them one-on-one.

Agora’s GCCS brings 120+ Corporate Buyers (CIO's, CTO's, CISO's, Cyber Security experts) and Solution Providers and offers attendees the chance to get connected with how to protect, detect, and mange any Cyber attack that were to occur.

Ultimately, attendees will walk away with a richer idea of what to expect beyond 2019.
