The UAE National Cyber Security Council and UAE-based technology company Injazat signed an MoU on Sunday aimed at improving coordination and response time to potential cyber-attacks in the country.

The MoU which was signed at at Intersec, the largest security exhibition in the Middle East region, currently underway in Dubai, will enable all government and semi-government entities to be safeguarded by Injazat’s Cyber Fusion Centre’s ‘Detection and Response’ services.

The agreement allows Injazat to provide standardised ‘Detection and Response’ services to all government entities at competitive rates and also train and equip UAE nationals in cyber security.

In addition, it will enable Injazat to co-create and develop future-facing cyber defense products to mitigate cyber risks and secure the digital infrastructure of the UAE, according to state-run news agency WAM.

The “Detection and Response” services would also involve cyber threat intelligence, threat defense operations and digital forensics, offering an integrated view of the continually evolving threat landscape with contextualised and actionable data at the council level to help make informed decisions and coordinate responses.

Injazat launched the region’s first-ever Cyber Fusion Centre (CFC) in June 2020 to boost protection against data breaches and cyber-attacks.

The CFC stands apart from any competitor in its radically different approach to cyber defense by proactively managing advanced threats, unlike traditional Security Operations Centres, which is more focused on identifying and reacting to incidents.

Cyber Fusion Centres also help organisations streamline their systems and assimilate information into actionable strategies and tactics while improving productivity and reducing costs.

Mohammed Hamad Al-Kuwaiti, Head of Cybersecurity for the UAE Government said, “Injazat’s state-of-the-art Cyber Fusion Center will centralise and streamline incident detection, enable coordinated responses, and provide a unified approach to neutralise potential threats which is an absolute necessity today when countering cybercrimes.”

Ussama Dahabiyeh, CEO at Injazat, added, “Given the growing complexity of cyber-attacks and how interconnected our systems are, a proactive and single integrated function is essential to ensure the cyber resilience of our critical infrastructure. This agreement between the Injazat and the National Cybersecurity Council will be beneficial in the areas of cyber threat intelligence sharing, cybersecurity exercises, national talent development, and will also help cement what is already a strong and fruitful partnership between the two organisations.”
