VIVA Bahrain, the Kingdom’s leading telecommunications service provider, hosted an informative session under the theme of “Cyber threats= challenge” for its business customers. The session was focused on providing awareness on the anatomy of the modern cyber-attacks and the effective ways to counter these risks by breaking the threat cycle ensuring early detection and prevention – minimizing the risk of damage.

Taking place at VIVA’s own Innovation Center, located within VIVA’s headquarters in Seef district, the event covered presentations and live demonstration of modern technology to help preserve corporate data against potential cyber threats with industry leading solutions from McAfee and Fortinet, VIVA’s technology partners.

Following the sessions, VIVA customers were made aware of VIVA’s latest services in cyber security including Bahrain’s very first Cyber Security Academy, organised by VIVA and Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) providing the attendees with the option of continuing their training through the academy’s cyber security workshops that are aimed at uplifting the talent and development of the cyber security domain in Bahrain and to support the development of the Kingdom’s national economy and IT security.

Mohamed Al Khushail, VIVA Acting CEO commented: “We received a great demand for such educational sessions especially after the major success of previous events concerning Cloud Computing and Cyber Security Awareness”. He also added “Our team has been working hard at ensuring a valuable VIVA experience for our business clients through events such as these that connect them face to face with cyber security industry leaders and equip them with the necessary tools to minimize serious corporate security breaches”.
