Regional Security Day – 2015

The goal of this roundtable is to explore cyber security research, focusing on problems most relevant to the region.  How can we develop relevant and impactful research collaborations engaging to the MENA region?  What are the roadblocks we face to effectively collaborate, how do we problem solve and discover ways to overcome them?  In addition, related topics such as data sharing, test-bed development, and the recruitment of cyber security talent will also be addressed.  Researchers from Qatar, KSA, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey, Oman, India, Kuwait, Turkey, and Australia have joined this day long event in previous years.  For this year’s Regional Cyber Security Day, twenty professional joined in the panels and workshops.
