Chairman of SAFCSP, Faisal Bin Saud Al-Khamisi, visited SecuLetter’s booth.
“Through the participation in the event, @HACK, we have found out the fact that the clients in Saudi Arabia and Middle East Countries are aware of the importance of the cybersecurity and there is an increase in demand for the same,” said Ms. Jang, Head of Global Business in SecuLetter. “Especially, the visitors at the booth wanted to know more about the advanced technology used by SecuLetter. Telco and major MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider) showed keen interest in the SecuLetter’s Automatized Reverse Engineering technology and gave us great feedback leading to have a technical meeting.” Ms. Jang further added.
Highlights of @HACK included a SAR 1 million (USD 266,547) hacking contest, keynote presentations from some of the biggest names in cybersecurity, participation from the leading companies in the ICT industry, and 600 hours of advanced training.
