CAISEC' 23: Cybersecurity In a New World Order

The world is reshaping itself, or rather is being reshaped. And despite promises made by world leaders about a world free of hunger and disease, with less wars and conflicts and a whole set of values. What is happening in reality is perhaps almost the opposite. And the more advances taking place, the more risks occur. Security breaches are becoming more common and more complex, resulting in new laws being passed to protect consumers and companies putting security at the center of their decisions.

But counterattacks are there to ward off vicious players. These include new data privacy laws and customers will want to know what kind of data you collect from them and how it is used. However, can we standardize security operations and tailor them to individual jurisdictions.

 

Also, as organizations support different technologies in different locations, do they have flexible security solutions? Security managers use dozens of tools, but can they reduce their number using SaaS as a preferred method and how will this affect hardware used.

 

Soon we shall see organizations that are looking at cyber risk in business deals requesting more information about third party’s cybersecurity program, and that will affect an organization’s ratings. Are the different companies aware of this today? When a cybersecurity expert is among the board of directors of any large organization, how will his opinion be accounted for?

 

All cybersecurity experts agree that corporate resilience is a culture to protect against threats from cybercrime caused by accelerated digital transformation. This culture to be built requires extensive knowledge and continuous learning about risks and resilience against cyber-attackers who will use technology as weapons causing human casualties because malware is spreading from IT to OT, thus causing physical harm.

CAISEC’22 Highlights

Caisec ’22 keynote speech by H.E. Minister of Finance Dr. Mohamed Maait

CAISEC ’22 keynote speech was given by H.E. Minister of Finance Dr. Mohamed Maait, who describe how the entire financial and fiscal systems, including taxes and invoicing, are becoming momentarily available online. “As much as this presents itself as an excellent opportunity and overview for our decision-making process, it also poses a threat to our ability to keep the data safe from any incident”, the Minister said, “and such conference helps in offering the best means to do so properly”, he added.

H.E. Minister of Higher Education and Acting Minister of Health Dr. Khaled Abdel Ghaffar, spoke at the opening of CAISEC’22 about two levels; the first is providing the necessary curricula for college students to offer a market short of experts the needed entry levels of young professionals. “And as our health systems are all coming online, cyber, data and information security are much needed to protect patient privacy and medical records, let alone automated processes in hospitals”, Dr. Abdel Ghaffar said.

A significant shift in military industries and research was presented in the address of Minister of Military Production Gen. Mohamed Morsy, who spoke about specialized centres to train professionals on the new trends of cybersecurity.

One of the main highlights that was much admired by the audience was a presentation highlighting the 5th Warfare domain, namely cyberwars. General Ashraf Eleiwa presented the different generations of warfare up to how armies of the advanced world have taken this domain to represented the new corps in their armies. “This did not happen few months ago, but it officially took place more than a decade ago, some are defensive and others offensive”, he said

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.
