Hyderabad: The third edition of Cyber Security Conference-2017, beginning here on Thursday, is expected to help the city’s IT firms update on global regulations, threats and solutions.

Prema Zilberman, General Manager of Kenes Exhibitions, said Israeli experts in the field of cyber security will collaborate with the firms and discuss measures to be taken concerning the latest cyber security issues at global level. Participants in the two-day event will include security experts and industry majors.

She said a major area of concern would be Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a law enacted by the European Union to provide data security to its citizens.

During the event, experts from Symantec, Verizon, Qualcomm, Rafael Defence Systems, Checkpoint, Quick heal and Rediff.com will hold consultations with Defence Research and Development Laboratory, State Bank of India, Indian Institute of Technology-Hyderabad and Telangana’s administrative officers.

The conference will discuss eight key topics – defending democracy, protecting critical infrastructure, demonetisation-cybercrime and fraud, stopping ransom and dark net, privacy and GDPR and incident response, she said.
