Cyber security issues discussed
MUSCAT The Cyber Defence Summit themed ‘Defending your virtual borders’ concluded on Tuesday.  

The two-day event was organised by Oman’s National Computer Emergency Readiness Team (OCERT) on behalf of the Information Technology Authority (ITA) in cooperation with International Telecommunications Union ( ITU) and Naseba Co.

The summit highlighted the Sultanate’s role as a key regional centre in cyber security and its initiative to international experts to learn from the experiences of other countries.  

Ibrahim Al Hadad, Director of the ITU Arab Regional Office, said the event showcases the Sultanate’s keenness to improve cyber security. It is with this aim that the Sultanate has set up OCERT, which tracks locations of e-attacks and disables them.  

The Sultanate is a strategic regional centre for cyber security as undersea Internet cables start from the Sultanate before diverging into the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf, Hadad said in a statement. He said the Sultanate has skilled human resources to train people in other states that do not have cyber security measures.
