The agency confirmed, in a statement Saturday, that the workshop aims to raise the level of cyber security in the vital sectors in the country, and sheds light on cyber security capabilities, the most prominent cyber threats, and strengths and weaknesses in the electric power sector from a global perspective, under the agency's mandate with regard to protecting critical infrastructure of the state.
This workshop, organised by the Agency's Department of National Cyber Governance and Assurance Affairs, comes within the framework of the initiative to raise the level of cyber security in the electric power sector and to build bridges of cooperation, dialogue and exchange of experiences with relevant parties, as well as unifying efforts to raise the level of cyber security in vital services in the country.
