World’s leading security company Symantec in its predictions for 2013 cybersecurity and threats had emphasized that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) continues to be a target for cybercrime attacks for businesses and individuals.
Middle East in general had a spate of some high-profile attacks last year with some big companies like the Saudi Aramco and Qatar RasGas coming under massive hacking attacks crippling their operations.
Securing IT systems is a continuous process wherein systems are updated regularly and new defense mechanisms deployed to prevent the ever changing landscape of cyber security risks.
US-CERT website has got comprehensive information on securing systems.
UPDATE: Juma al Majid’s website is now back online at 9:10am (we had purposely not given the link earlier to prevent any malware infecting your system)
