Resecurity, a California-based cybersecurity company protecting major Fortune 500 giants worldwide, showcased its award-winning Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) and Digital Risk Monitoring (DRM) solutions at Black Hat Middle East & Africa 2022 (MEA) held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 15-17, 2022.
Black Hat, the undisputed top cybersecurity event and infosec training for over two decades globally, now launches Black Hat MEA to engage a region all set for growth and success in ICT security.
In 2021, its previous avatar @Hack achieved several remarkable milestones, including 127% more attendees than the original target; a CTF competition with over 300 teams vying for a prize fund of SAR1m; and 182 international solution providers across the infosec spectrum.
Founded in 1997, Black Hat is widely attended by cybersecurity executives, professionals, investors academics, and vendors. Black Hat is held in Asia, The United States, and Europe on an annual basis.
Black Hat MEA acts as a major capacity-building platform, bringing to the region elite level infosec professionals to train people and help to ensure the great goals of Vision 2030 remain secure and safe from criminal and hostile cyber threats within the information security community.
The topic of threat intelligence is of a special interest due to new regulations brought by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA). This year the financial industry regulator required all financial institutions to implement threat intelligence in scope of existing Cybersecurity Framework.
That requires all banks, e-commerce, insurance companies to have proper Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) in place, along with proper procedures, updating threat feeds and tools to collect, analyse and disseminate actionable information about cyber threats within the enterprise.
Saudi Arabia undergoes a significant digital transformation in the public and private sector following the progressive Vision 2030 agenda making the Kingdom one of the leading global players in trade and supply chain economics – what makes the region an attractive target for cybercriminals, APT groups and nation-state actors.
Vision 2030 is a strategic framework that aims to transform the Saudi economy from one which is focused strongly on hydrocarbons, to one which is enabled by future technology, igniting the world’s best innovations.
It will empower females and youth, and bring about a new era of sustainable, clean energy which will help to power the smart cities of tomorrow. With hundreds of billions of dollars being invested in Giga projects like NEOM, comes the responsibility to protect the new electronic and digital infrastructure that will act as the lifeblood of this great transformation.
This year Resecurity was recognized as a top threat intelligence vendor included in the latest Frost & Sullivan “Global Threat Intelligence Platforms Market 2022” report along with Anomali and Recorded Future.
The success was doubled by receiving a “Gold Winner” in 3 categories by Cybersecurity Excellence Awards 2022 – Cyber Threat Intelligence, Threat Hunting and Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM) for North America. The company competitive advantages highlighted in Frost Radar for Threat Intelligence Platforms include strong Human Intelligence (HUMINT) capabilities with global coverage and the largest Dark Web data repository containing billions of indexed historical records and threat actors profiles useful for threat intelligence analysts, cybercrime investigators and risk management professionals.
