MEEZA, Qatar’s prominent end-to-end Managed IT Services & Solutions Provider, brought  its years-long expertise in the ICT field to Qatar Central Bank’s (QCB) 3rd annual ‘Information Security Conference’ for the financial sector, through a special presentation about Vulnerability Management, tackling a vital aspect of organizations’ security welfare today. 

The event was held at the Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel on November 1st, under the patronage of Prime Minister and Minister of Interior H.E. Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani, and in the presence of QCB’s Governor H.E. Sheikh Abdullah bin Saoud Al Thani, and H.E. Mr. Jassim bin Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti, Qatar’s Minister of Transport & Communications. In its third edition, the Information Security Conference witnessed the participation of MEEZA as one of the event’s main sponsors, as well as the tangible contribution of Mr. Nasser Salem H. Al Ansari, ICT Security Expert, who delivered a presentation entitled ‘Vuralysis: Vulnerability Management Paralysis’ to the lineup of leading financial institutions from across the region to attend the one-day event.

Commenting on the occasion, Eng. Ahmad Mohammed Al Kuwari (pictured), MEEZA CEO said: “With the financial sector being the most prone to security exploitation and compromise of information, appropriate controls must be established to mitigate those risks. At MEEZA, and based on many years of experience in the field, we believe that a mature and effective security vulnerability management framework is key for the security welfare of organizations today. The right Framework will empower institutions to detect such vulnerabilities at the public services and internal resources level, pinpoint threats that might cause a potential deterioration in performance, and manage vulnerabilities on a continuous basis in parallel with a constant improvement lifecycle. This is an essential measure that financial institutions must consider implementing today, in order to protect their digital assets and information against growing threats.”

The event was attended by a number of world-renowned authority figures in the Financial Sector and high-profile industry experts who shared influential presentations during QCB’s eminent Conference. Through its participation at the Conference, MEEZA contributed to raising the bar of performance in financial institutions, and empowering professionals and executives in the sector to take one more important step towards establishing Qatar as a leading financial and business center in the region.
