DIFC firms to be safeguarded against cyber risks


Dubai will be launching the first regulator-led cyber threat intelligence platform in the region.

The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) announced that the new platform will help safeguard firms in DIFC against cyber-risks. 

The platform, which will go live in January 2020, will be accessible by all DIFC businesses. 

It is following an ongoing collaboration with the Dubai Electronic Security Centre, the National Computer Emergency Response Team and the Computer Incident Response Centre Luxembourg.
