January 3, 2019

أكّد محمد الحكيم، المدير الإقليمي في الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا وتركيا في شركة «نتسكوب» الأميركية، المتخصصة بأمن السحابة الإلكتروني، أنه بفضل استمرار حكومة الدولة في الاستثمار بمشاريع تحول رقمي رائدة عالمياً مثل «دبي الذكية» و«أبوظبي الذكية»، فإن التحول نحو السحابة يعزّز دخول القطاع الخاص في برامج الحكومة الإلكترونية بشكل أكبر، ويدعم الشراكة بين القطاعين العام والخاص في قطاع التكنولوجيا، وبالتالي يمكّن من تقديم خدمات أفضل للمستخدمين في القطاعين العام والخاص.

ولفت الحكيم إلى أن استطلاع «أمن السحابة الإلكترونية» الصادر مؤخراً عن الشركة كشف في المقابل عن وجود ثلاثة تحديات أمنية حددها المتخصصون في الأمن السيبراني في الشركات الراغبة بالتحول نحو السحابة في الإمارات، وهي فقدان البيانات وتسربها بنسبة 67%، وتهديدات خصوصية البيانات بنسبة 61%، واختراق السرية بنسبة 53%، وذلك بالمقارنة مع العام السابق.
