Cybersecurity leaders in the Middle East: State-of-the-Art
The unique cyber threat landscape and economic composition in the Middle East is unmatched. Because the region is heavily dependent on electricity and water infrastructure, operational technology threats pose a significant risk. This panel will examine the unique cyber security landscape of the Middle East and determine the best practices for operational cybersecurity professionals working in the region.
The Middle East Institute (MEI), is pleased to host a panel of industry experts to discuss the cyber security challenges, opportunities and course of action facing Middle East companies. Synack, a top cyber security company, sponsors this panel. Synack combines the best ethical hackers in the world with AI-enabled technology to create an effective, scalable security solution.
What is the cyber threat landscape in the Middle East today? What are the most common types of threat actors, tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs),? How is the environment different from other parts of the world?

About The Middle East Institute
The oldest Washington-based institution devoted to the study and research of the Middle East was founded in 1946. It is a non-partisan thinktank that provides expert policy analysis, educational, and professional development services, as well as a hub for engaging in the region’s arts, culture, and arts.
To increase the knowledge of Americans about the Middle East and to foster a better understanding between people from these two regions
Inspired by his experiences in the Middle East before World War II, George Camp Keiser, an architect and veteran, established a center for the study and research of the Middle East in 1946. Keiser and his colleagues imagined a center for learning where leaders from different fields could come together and collaborate to increase knowledge about the Middle East. This, according to our corporate charter, would allow us to “promote a better understanding between peoples living in these two regions.”
The Middle East Institute is a pioneer in a new type of think tank. It thrives on the intersection between policy and culture. Our commitment to understanding the region through a wider perspective is reflected in our centers.
