Abu Dhabi chamber focuses on data security
Mohammed Helal Al-Muhairi, director general of chamber, said the seminar grew out of an increased interest in governance programs, which companies see as being able to boost efficiency, productivity and profits.
Azhar Zia-ur-Rehman, an international expert in IT governance and the main speaker at the seminar, pointed out problems that can come when companies fail to have proper information security in place. He said data breaches and other failures by incomplete information security systems can cause significant problems for companies and consumers. Consumers can have their information stolen, while the company can lose its reputation.
