Acronis, a provider of cybersecurity solutions, hosted its Dubai chapter of CyberFit Summit, an event series focusing on cyber protection. The company also has released its Cyberthreats Report 2022, a review of the cyber threat trends which warns that small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are at particular risk based on the attack trends seen during the last six months of the year.
The event has engaged cybersecurity and industry experts from around the world and observed how companies can enhance their IT infrastructure capabilities – with a particular focus on MSPs, which are coming under increased attention from cybercriminals. The hybrid event hosted over 400 in-person attendees and hundreds more participants joined the summit virtually as well.
“The Acronis CyberFit Summit World Tour 2021 is where our partners come together to learn, grow their business and network,” said Patrick Pulvermueller, Chief Executive Officer at Acronis. “Dubai was a fantastic stop for our tour and it was great to see our very active local partners in person. The region has so much to offer and I look forward to being back soon in 2022.”
At the event, attendees heard from renowned speakers and experts including Chris Voss, former FBI hostage negotiator, Lt.Colonel. Dr.Hamad Khalifa Al Nueimi, the Head of Telecom Division at the Infrastructure Dept (ICT Center) of Abu Dhabi Police GHQ, and Dr. Humaid Alshamsi, AI expert.
