Batelco holds series of Cybersecurity Webinars

Manama

Batelco recently launched a series of webinars focused on topics related to cybersecurity, including next-generation firewalls, cloud assets, converged security and the new standards in wireless data for business customers. Batelco has hosted 5 webinars to date covering various topics. Cybersecurity is growing in importance as the majority of companies collect, process, and store large amounts of data on computers and other devices and need to protect this data and the systems used to process and store it.

According to a Cybersecurity Ventures report, it is predicted that, by 2021 a business will be exposed to a cybersecurity attack every 11 seconds. Batelco General Manager Abderrahmane Mounir said the webinars aim at enhancing the knowledge of participants across the field of cybersecurity and increase their understanding of the various solutions and tools available to protect their business.

“We are very pleased with the response to the webinars that have already taken place and look forward to continuing with this series going forward, to help our customers with their decision making on how best to protect their businesses in relation to cybersecurity,” Mr Mounir added. The series of webinars is being carried out in collaboration with a number of Batelco’s technology partners including Cisco, Palo Alto, SonicWall, Huawei and Sophos.
