TahawulTech.com and Security Advisor ME have successfully hosted the second annual CISO50 Awards and Forum. Held on 27th March at the Habtoor Grand Hotel in Dubai, the CISO 50 Awards and Forum rallied together top security thought-leaders from the region who have demonstrated excellence and achievement in security and driven business value.
The CISO 50 Awards and Forum featured a keynote presentation from serial entrepreneur and co-founder and CEO of VUL9 Security Solutions Mohamed Amine Belarbi who shed light on the different technologies that will impact the future of cybersecurity.
In his presentation, Belarbi noted that increasing unprecedented largescale attacks could potentially lead to a world where hackers, cyber terrorists and state actors use cyber to paralyse companies, nations and cause real physical damage that will put millions of lives at risk. “Tomorrow’s cybersecurity discussions will be less about inconveniences and more about fatalities,” he warned.
However, all hope is not lost, said Belarbi. “Developments in new areas of technology could significantly enhance our cyber capabilities, especially when it comes to the intersection of cybersecurity and artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain and Quantum Computing.”
According to Belarbi, the Quantum era presents both the most risks and opportunities for cybersecurity. “With enough time and computing power, anything is breakable,” he explained. “Quantum computing will allow the data decryption processes to be reduced from years to merely hours.”
