Lessons learned from Careem’s high profile data breach

Published: 13 August 2020 - midnight

CommsMEA is delighted to announce the launch of a three part webinar series that will explore the impact of a cyber security breach across the region’s industries.

Presented in partnership with security and network specialist Cybereason, the first in the three part webinar series will examine “Lessons learned from Careem’s high profile data breach”.

A large scale data breach is just about every new, successful company’s worst nightmare. With the damage to a young company’s reputation, not to mention the financial implications of recovering from such a breach, data theft is one of the most damaging crimes that can be committed against a business.

In early 2018, ride sharing platform Careem was hit by a cyber-attack which compromised the data of up to 14 million users. Rather than wallowing in the pain of this attack, Careem has used the incident as a springboard to tighten up its own security and revolutionise the way in which it secures its customers’ data.

During this free to view, hour long webinar, we’ll hear from Careem’s ex-CISO, Owen Connolly, about how he overcame the challenges associated with such a high profile breach.

Connolly will be joined by security staffing expert Barry Martin, Jim Hung, IR and security expert and Tarek Kuzbari of Cybereason.

“This webinar is going to tell a really personal story about how one of the region’s fastest growing and best known companies fought back against cyber criminals. This will be a certified case study on how to successfully bounce back from such a public security breach. We are sure to hear plenty of fascinating insights into best practice along the way,” said Chris Kelly, Editor, CommsMEA.

The webinar will air at 12 noon on Thursday the 20th of August. Don’t miss your opportunity to be part of the discussion and register your attendance by clicking on the following link.
