Qatar Central Bank (QCB), organizes the second conference on Information Security in Financial Institutions under the title “Enhancing IT Security in the Financial Sector in Today’s World” on November 15-16. HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Saoud Al-Thani, Governor of QCB, stated in a statement that the conference aims at enhancing IT security and shedding light on it.
He stated that QCB had worked in the past years to improve software, hardware, and applications related to information security, in accordance to the best international practices to use the latest technology in this area, in order to achieve the desired goals and in line with the strategic plan for development and achievement of Qatar National Vision 2030.
The Qatar Central Bank is continuing to work towards creating a stable and secure financial environment. This is done through coordination between the financial services sector’s supervisory and oversight authorities and joint efforts through the relevant specialized commissions.
