A.I. and the Future of Cybersecurity

November 14th, 2019
Dubai, U.A.E.


We, at Dubai Electronic Security Center, extend our great pleasure to partner with IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization for the 3rd consecutive year. Together, we bring you the “IEEE UAE Cyber Intelligence Summit” which falls under the theme “A.I. and the future of cybersecurity” for this year.

Our aim is to offer a forum where leading cybersecurity experts and researchers can engage in fruitful discussions, exchange ideas, and reflect upon the important possibilities of A.I. technology in the field of cybersecurity.

This summit also marks an important step towards achieving the Dubai Cyber Security Strategy, that was launched under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, in promoting cybersecurity research & development and establishing free, fair, and secure cyberspace in Dubai as well as influencing it on a global scale.

Looking forward to welcoming you to Dubai.
