Ooredoo yesterday announced that it is the Official Telecommunications Sponsor of the two-day Information Security Conference for the Financial Sector (ISFS), set to open here today.

The conference, which is in its fourth year, promotes dialogue around information security in Qatar, the ICT challenges facing financial institutions, and the solutions available to tackle these challenges.

The event is organised by Qatar Central Bank under the patronage of H E Sheikh Abdulla bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani Prime Minister and Minister of Interior. High-level speakers and cyber security experts from Qatar and worldwide will meet to shed light on information security  issues.

As an Official Sponsor of the event, Ooredoo’s Chief Business Officer, Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Thani is scheduled to speak on the ICT security solutions Ooredoo offers, and its network of Data Centres in Qatar.

In the past few years, Ooredoo has introduced many of the latest security technologies to Qatar, and its nationwide network of Ooredoo Data Centres are playing an important role in providing cloud and managed security services for critical national infrastructure.

The company will also have a booth at the venue which will promote its next generation Security Operations Centre (SOC) services.

Ooredoo’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) is at the heart of the company’s Managed Security Services approach, providing tailored security monitoring for enterprises and organisations across Qatar.

The service enables companies to investigate business security incidents, perform incident response and forensics, and helps keep organisations operating even in the event of a data breach.
