The event will focus on challenges faced by financial organisations with regard to securing internet and mobile banking platforms, regulatory compliance, payment security, authentication and data security. It will also highlight the application of technologies such as IoT, Blockchain, biometrics, digital identity and multifactor authentication to counter security challenges.

FinSec will host key dignitaries from government authorities, leading banks and global solution providers in the MENA region. The attendees will share their experiences and address security challenges in the banking industry, with the objective of upgrading their current security strategies in line with today’s highly sophisticated attacks.

The BFSI industry in the MENA region is widely targeted by cyber attackers.
