Project STADIA Director General Falah Abdulla Al Dosari, who welcomed the participants, stressed the importance of the gathering, which he said reflected the need to strengthen international partnership in the field of security for sporting events, in light of escalating and increasing security risks related to cybersecurity, which are now crossing borders of countries and continents.

He said that the meeting was aimed at enhancing Qatar’s contacts with countries and international organisations and in creating a legacy that will enable INTERPOL member states to benefit from important information. The meet was also aimed at enhancing cybercrime combating capabilities, as it remains one of the risks to any sporting event.

INTERPOL is working to enable security services in all countries to work together to make the world safer. He added that STADIA’s state-of-the-art infrastructure support will help meet the increasing challenges of combating crime of all kinds.

According to First Lieutenant Khalid Mohammed Al Hashemi of the SC Security Committee, this meeting would benefit from the exchange of information between participants and in preparing to secure the 2022 World Cup from the cyber-attacks.

The Cyber Security Unit has developed many plans and projects have been implemented, including the measurement of cyber risks that targets  infrastructure.
