The American Chamber of Commerce in Qatar (AmCham Qatar) today hosted Dave Brooke, General Manager of Dell Middle East, at a special edition of its Distinguished Speaker Series focusing on the impact of growing global IT security risks on doing business in Qatar and the region.

Briefing the members of AmCham Qatar and regional business leaders on the latest risks facing organizations in the region, Brooke described how certain aspects of any IT infrastructure can be updated or refreshed to protect corporate data from cyber-crime and other internal threats such as the loss of devices, securing and empowering remote workers and protecting against human error. Brooke also offered his top tips to assist organizations to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks.

With Dell’s comprehensive range of end-to end security solutions and his own extensive knowledge of security threats in the region, Brooke was the ideal speaker for this event. The chamber actively seeks local industry leaders to educate and inform its members around the latest topics and trends affecting businesses in the region. Following much research and a high level of investment, Dell has been able to provide organizations of all sizes with security solutions that help to protect corporate networks from the majority of threats. With its range of Next Generation firewalls, Dell is able to monitor threats on a global level and keep its customers’ firewalls updated against the latest malware risks.
