Dubai, 25 August 2020: Publicis-owned global strategic communications firm Kekst CNC today announces it has joined forces with digital infrastructure specialist Cloud&Heat, to strengthen its cyber security offering in the region through a series of workshops aimed at raising awareness around the risks that cyber threats pose.
During the past few months and amidst the outbreak of the global pandemic, we have seen the number of cyber incidents increase worldwide. The GCC in particular, has long been singled out by hackers, owing to its vast domestic wealth reserves and high-tech infrastructure.
In spite of this, many companies in the region lag behind when it comes to implementing robust security measures and being prepared to manage a cyber crisis should an incident occur. Therefore, it has never been more important to re-educate employees and equip organizations with the right tools and knowledge to launch an effective response to a cyber event.
The workshops offered by Kekst CNC and Cloud&Heat will address this need for re-education by helping organizations minimize their digital risk, optimize existing digital infrastructure and ultimately better protect their business and their reputation.
Kekst CNC will provide a thorough assessment of existing risk management processes from a communications and reputation perspective as well as the most effective ways to prepare and react to a cyber breach, including stakeholder communications, key principles of crisis communications and an audit of current crisis plans and team structures.
Cloud&Heat, will address the importance of a sustainable and secure IT infrastructure and explain in detail the relevant technical tools available for protecting companies from future cyber threats. Cloud&Heat is an award-winning technology company that develops, builds, and operates energy-efficient, scalable and secure data centres that meet the requirements of the future cloud, making it the ideal technical partner for this initiative.
Kekst CNC has deep expertise managing communications across several cyber scenarios, including data breaches, system failures and more, providing clients with services ranging from risk assessment and preparedness to training as well as response and recovery advisory.
