@Hack to feature the most advanced ethical hacking training sessions to help the country defend against the threat of malicious cyberattacks

Saudi Arabia is investing heavily in technology to enable Vision 2030 and Giga initiatives such as NEOM, and it has also expressed interest in bidding for World Expo 2030. However, with all this comes the responsibility to protect the electronic and digital assets that make these initiatives happen.

With security at its core, the Saudi Federation for Cyber Security, Programming and Drones (SAFCSP) and Informatech, in association with Blackhat, are co-organising @Hack from November 28-30 at the Riyadh Front Exhibition & Conference Centre. The event will feature the most advanced ethical hacking training sessions to help the country defend against the threat of malicious cyberattacks.

As one of the strategic sponsors of the event, Spire Solutions will introduce its cybersecurity solutions to CISOs and other security professionals attending the event.

Spire’s founder and president, Sanjeev Walia, commented – “We have been supporting the kingdom with its cybersecurity needs since our inception and have also opened an office in Riyadh to work even more closely with our Saudi customers and channel partners to enhance infosec in the kingdom.”

“We are proud that when @Hack launches, it will be the most influential and impactful infosec gathering across the region, 3x larger than any other cyber event. Having the right support system from the industry is crucial,” said Michael Champion, regional EVP at Informa Markets.

Dubbed as Spiretrons of Arabia, Spire’s main theme will be ‘Enhancing infosec in the kingdom”. Spire will showcase several solutions and services by featuring its technology partners such as Spire Data (analytics and AI), Cribl (data and SOC optimisation), ThreatConnect (RQ, TIP and SOAR), Digital Shadows (digital risk management), Solarwinds (secure IT operations management), Group-IB (threat intelligence and attribution), Gigamon (network visibility), Corelight (network detection and response), Rapid7 (shared visibility, analytics and automation), CyberArk (privilege access management) and Atos (data, identity and access management).

Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia launched a series of technology initiatives worth over $1.2bn to improve the digital skills of 100,000 Saudi youngsters by 2030.

@Hack was announced in support of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 and SAFCSP’s aim to make one out of every 100 Saudi nationals a programmer. @Hack is the official Middle East facilitator and distributor for offensive security, and its security instructors will be among the 50 Black Hat authorised trainers running a training series in the run-up to the event.

The series will also establish a hacking school in the Middle East, offering sophisticated lessons for all levels of hackers.
