The Middle East is not unaccustomed to cyberwarfare. For the better part of the 21st century, cyber tools have been instrumental in the region for collecting intelligence, influencing public narratives, and damaging rival infrastructure. Israel and Iran have long traded cyber blows — as illustrated by the Stuxnet attacks of 2010. But the war in Gaza and resulting regional instability have led to a significant increase in both the number of actors employing cyber weapons and their level of sophistication. The Middle East Institute is pleased to invite you to an expert panel discussing this evolving cybersecurity threat landscape in the Middle East. The conversation will, in particular, focus on how the war in Gaza has affected the volume and types of cyber threats currently facing the region as well as what impact they have had on states thus far. Our distinguished speakers will analyze how countries in the Middle East are responding and to what extent their strategies are proving effective.
