Full Story
Dell EMC hosted a Cyber Recovery Executive roundtable event, held at Losail International Circuit Sports Club in Doha. At this one day event, Dell EMC highlighted how the company can partner with businesses across industries to design and deliver a robust cybersecurity strategy that aligns with their objectives and IT environment. 
 
As more organizations pursue digital transformation initiatives, they are encountering new, complex risks that are expanding their attack surface. According to Gartner, GCC nations spend 66 per cent more than the global average each time there is a data breach with the average cost of identifying and stopping a data breach typically being $3.5m in the GCC as compared to $2.1 million worldwide. 
Relevant to this new era of digitization, experts at Dell EMC presented the advantages of protecting data at every point with industry leading data protection solutions. The event also provided best practices and practical guides to help businesses drive growth, protect value and remain resilient in the event of an attack.  
 
In addition attendees were treated to a fast track racing session on the circuit with Dell EMC’s customer McLaren Automotive, to conclude the event.
