The University of Doha for Science and Technology (UDST) hosted the opening ceremony of the International Symposium on Cybersecurity, shining a spotlight on the challenges, opportunities and applications of the practice across a variety of industrial sectors.

Hosted by the University’s College of Computing and Information Technology (CCIT), the symposium is organised in partnership with Qatar’s National Cyber Security Agency (NCSA) and in conjunction with UDST’s cybersecurity partner Palo Alto Networks. The pioneering two-day event reflects UDST’s strong commitment to Qatar’s vision: to be ahead of the curve on matters of IT-related and Internet security.

The overarching theme of the international symposium is “Cybersecurity in Industry: Challenges, Opportunities, and Applications”. The event features an impressive array of keynote speakers and subject matter experts from Qatar, Germany and the USA, offering deep insights and varied perspectives, and bringing together a diverse audience of local, regional and international technology enthusiasts, faculty, students, ICT managers and industry professionals.

Among the special guests attending were Eng. Abdulrahman Ali Al-Malki, President of NCSA and Dr. Salem Al-Naemi, President of UDST alongside high-level delegations.

The conference features multiple engaging keynote presentations from a blend of local and international cybersecurity experts. The conference also features several panel discussions covering best practices for cybersecurity in academia, and the future of cybersecurity in industry.

Dr. Zakaria Maamar, dean of College of Computing and Information Technology said: “The international symposium is an exciting addition to the education we provide at UDST. We do not simply teach the topic of cybersecurity as part of a curriculum; we believe in creating fora for discussion and driving important conversations through events such as this. It allows our students access to experienced industry professionals addressing very real cybersecurity issues, a better grasp of sector challenges, and a stronger foothold in future discussions on the topic.”
