“We recognise the importance of collaborating with industry, to provide our students with the skills of the future, to solve some of the most pressing cyber challenges facing industry and government. The discussions that took place over the past few days will help us develop the talent pipeline, in this area of critical national significance to Qatar,” said HBKU’s Acting Associate Provost and ICT Division Coordinator, Professor Amine Bermak.

Meanwhile, Chief Executive, Lockheed Martin Qatar, Tom Milton, said, his party is excited to support a strong foundation of preparedness, for the emerging cyber threats the region will face.
