UAE Cyber Security Council, Injazat partner to improve cyber-attack detection & response

The UAE National Cyber Security Council and Injazat, the UAE’s home-grown technology champion in digital transformation, cloud, and cyber security, has announced the signing of a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the aim for further improving coordination and response time to potential cyber-attacks in the UAE.

The MoU will allow all government and semi-government entities to be safeguarded by Injazat’s Cyber Fusion Centre’s ‘Detection and Response’ services.

This partnership will enable 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 proactively mitigate cyber risks and secure the digital infrastructure of the UAE, enhancing local and regional cyber security capabilities as well as demonstrating leading practice.

The MoU will help ensure business continuity and digital protection while supporting the vitally important national sectors to achieve total digital transformation.

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 responses.

Mohammed Hamad Al-Kuwaiti, Head of Cybersecurity for the Government of the UAE, said,

"Maintaining business continuity in strategic sectors is a top priority in the council's strategy to confront suspicious cyber-attacks proactively and with high efficiency. 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. The fact that we are able to protect and strengthen the readiness of our relevant authorities and sectors through a home-grown entity gives me immense pleasure and pride and we look forward to further collaborations in the future."

Ussama Dahabiyeh, Chief Executive Officer at Injaza, said,

"As the digital enabler and technology champion of the UAE, we are delighted that such a strategic and significant partnership will help further the digital advancements goals set out by the government. Today’s announcement is a testament to Injazat’s expertise and commitment towards developing and deploying next-generation cyber capabilities and solutions that are intelligence-driven, collaborative, and automated for countering advanced security threats. 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."
