On December 8, Global CIO Forum in association with BeyondTrust, successfully hosted the BeyondTrust and the UAE Information Assurance Standard by NESA virtual roundtable. The gathering discussed how Privileged Access Management, PAM, solutions map into requirements set forth in the UAE Information Assurance Standard, IAS, as defined by the National Electronic Security Authority, NESA.
Mitigating cyber threats and ensuring the development of a secure national information and communications infrastructure, and cyberspace, is a strategic priority for the UAE. To this end, NESA developed the UAE IA Standards as a critical element of the National Information Assurance Framework, to provide requirements for elevating the level of IA across all implementing entities in the UAE.
All UAE government entities and other entities identified as Critical 1 by NESA are obligated to implement these standards. However, NESA highly recommends all entities in the UAE to adopt these standards on a voluntary basis, as applicable, to participate in raising the nation minimum-security levels.
But how does this compliance mandate impact your organisation, and how can you leverage PAM solutions to streamline operations and meet this objective? BeyondTrust capabilities address 25 Technical and Management controls in the UAE information assurance standard.
- The impact that IAS has on your organisations and, in particular, their security
- The initiatives that are the most fundamental to engage on this path to compliance
- Thoughts on how PAM solutions can help meeting these requirements
- The expectations from the market in terms of compliance to these mandates
- How BeyondTrust’s Privileged Access Management solutions can map into requirements set forth in the UAE IAS and help in accelerating and simplifying compliance
The keynote speakers for the BeyondTrust and the UAE Information Assurance Standard by NESA virtual roundtable were John Hathaway, RVP Middle East and India, BeyondTrust; and Michael Byrnes, Lead Solution Engineer, BeyondTrust. The discussions were followed by a Q&A session.
