Cyber Defence Summit

MIDDLE EAST CYBER SECURITY MARKET TO GROW TO USD 22.1 BN BY 2022

The MINISTRY OF TRANSPORT AND COMMUNICATIONS is responsible for Qatar’s national cyber security strategy and the supervision of the country’s ICT sectors.

WHY QATAR?

LEGISLATIVE INITIATIVES

Qatar has passed laws that require companies to be adequately protected from digital threats or face a fine of up to USD 1.37 mn.

INVESTING IN ICT

By 2019, ICT spend in Qatar’s commercial sector is expected to be at USD 2.8 bn per anum. As investment in technology increases, so does the need to protect those investments.
