Conference to Focus on IT and National Security in Saudi Arabia

A four-day conference on Information Technology and National Security will be held here from Nov. 3-6 as part of the Kingdom’s drive against terrorism via the Internet and other security issues.

Prince Muqrin ibn Abdul Aziz, chief of intelligence and chairman of the organizing committee, announced in a statement issued yesterday that the conference would also see the inauguration of its headquarters by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, under whose patronage the conference is being held.

One of the goals of the conference, said Prince Muqrin, was to “encourage researchers in modern technology to use it in such a way as to serve national security in a comprehensive manner.”

He said some 1,000 delegates, including IT experts from the Kingdom and abroad, were expected to attend the conference..........
