Caisec ’22 keynote speech by Chairman of Egypt’s Stock Exchange Mohamed Farid

 

Chairman of Egypt’s Stock Exchange Mohamed Farid highlighted the entire digital transformation of the system to be fully online, thus requiring the solutions exhibited at caisec and even more. “We do not stop digging for more effective systems, as the attacks and threats are becoming more complex, defensive measures need to be more innovative and effective”, Farid said.

Egypt’s banking system is considered one of the most advanced in adopting cybersecurity measures, as the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) drew an entire framework of regulations to be followed by all banks working in Egypt. The CBE SOC is now instrumental in providing banks with alarms about new trends in cyber attacks and ways to confront them.

This is why all banking CISOs and CSOs were present along the 2-day conference. They even held their closed meeting at the conference, part of which included presentations from local and international solution providers. 45 CISOs and CSOs came up with their own recommendations at the close of their meeting.
