The Cyber First Kuwait Conference is a remarkable event focused on New Kuwait Vision 2035 and outlines a transformative journey toward a digital secure future for Kuwait. Increased digitization across sectors has emphasized the need for strong cybersecurity measures to protect sensitive data. To deal with such rising cyber threats Kuwaiti government has established National Cyber Security strategy to protect and prioritize cybersecurity. With a steadfast commitment to enhancing cybersecurity maturity, Kuwait’s government has earmarked a substantial budget of $1 billion to achieve Maturity Level 5, the resilient enterprise level, within the upcoming five years.

Both the Kuwaiti government and the private sector are taking proactive strides to elevate the country’s cybersecurity resilience. The government’s launch of the National Cybersecurity Strategy aligns with businesses augmenting their investments in cybersecurity. As a result, Kuwait’s cybersecurity market is on a remarkable trajectory. Projections indicate that by 2024, this market is set to generate an impressive revenue of approximately $2,405 million.

In the spirit of fostering collaboration across public and private realms, and in a bid to thwart the endeavors of malicious actors, Events First Group is elated to present the Cyber First-Kuwait Conference, 4th June 2024 in Kuwait.
