ABU DHABI // Effective defence of the nation’s cyberspace must take into account the possibility that attackers are not just nations or shadowy groups, a security expert has warned.
“In cyberspace there are no national boundaries, and attackers needn’t be a country or organisation,” said William Hagestad, a researcher in cyber security intelligence at Red Dragon Rising Publishing in the US. “They can be anyone with a computer, mouse and keyboard and the will to do harm.”
Protecting the country from such attacks will be discussed at the three-day Cyber Defence and Network Security summit, starting today, when 100 industry experts from across the UAE, including the police and military, will gather.
