Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: VIVA, Kuwait’s fastest-grow­ing and most de­vel­oped telecom op­er­a­tor, an­nounced that will take part in the Third E-Gov­ern­ment Fo­rum ‘In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment and Se­cu­rity’ as plat­inum spon­sor, held un­der the pa­tron­age of Prime Min­is­ter, His High­ness Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Ha­mad Al-Sabah, at Ar­raya Ball­room, from 15 to 17 Novem­ber 2014.

Com­ment­ing on this spon­sor­ship, Ab­dul­raz­zaq Al-Essa, Di­rec­tor of Cor­po­rate Communications Divi­sion at VIVA, said: “VIVA, as leader telecom so­lu­tions provider, was keen to par­tic­i­pate in this fo­rum since its first ver­sion as we have in­ter­est in tech­nol­ogy sur­round­ing in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion se­cu­rity, con­fronting the chal­lenges of the se­cu­rity in­for­ma­tion.”

The Third E-Gov­ern­ment fo­rum will dis­cuss this year two tracks that are of sig­nif­i­cant im­por­tance to e-gov­ern­ment de­vel­op­ment ser­vices: In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment and In­for­ma­tion Se­cu­rity. The In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment track shall cover top­ics such as Road to Gov­ern­ment Data In­te­gra­tion and Gov­er­nance, Trends of En­ter­prise Con­tent Man­age­ment (ECM), Data An­a­lyt­ics in e-Gov­ern­ment So­lu­tions, and Record Man­age­ment in the e-Gov­ern­ment ser­vices. The Fo­rum will also shed light on the fu­ture NoSQL and In-Mem­ory Data­base Trends and The Par­a­digm Shift of the In­ter­net of Things (IoT). A core fo­cus of this track is to dis­cuss the Struc­tural Chal­lenges of Ser­vice Ori­ented Gov­ern­ments, and the role of the M-Gov­ern­ment pro­grams.

How­ever, In­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity is a manda­tory fac­tor for the suc­cess of e-gov­ern­ment pro­grams, as well as for any other elec­tronic sys­tems such as bank­ing, re­tail, and elec­tronic pay­ment re­lated sys­tems.
