Dubai Electronic Security Center (DESC) was founded in 2014. Pursuant to Law No. 11 and with the aim to develop and implement information security practices, it has been setting good-practice criteria for cyber security across the Emirate. DESC’s strategic plan includes initiatives to combat threats, cyber-attacks, and cyber-crime. The goals of technological development will never be met in the absence of supportive frameworks that promote the security and safety of information systems. The Cyber Security Strategy aims to do just that here in Dubai.
