The Ministry of Transport and Communications held the technical workshop “FIRST Qatar TC” in collaboration with FIRST (Forum for Incident Response and Security Teams), the premier organization of recognized global leaders in incident response.

This is the second time Qatar has hosted this event. The first was held in 2007. This year’s edition coincides with the 7th Qatar National Cybersecurity Drill (Star 7), which takes place annually.

In his welcome remarks, MOTC’s Assistant Undersecretary of Cybersecurity Mr. Eng. Khalid Al-Hashmi stressed the importance of cybersecurity and praised Qatar’s efforts in delivering secure online services while providing solutions to contribute to the realization of the national vision of cybersecurity.

Annual national cybersecurity drills contribute effectively to raising the awareness and skills on cybersecurity nationwide, across all sectors and industries, with each year having its unique theme and exercises.

The FIRST Qatar TC Workshop featured several international experts, specialists and representatives from MOTC, ITU, AICC and FIRST.
