Companies Invited to Participate as Security Experts and Regional Professionals Converge at Black Hat Abu Dhabi Between 8th and 11th November 2010

ABU DHABI, UAE, July 18, 2010 - Amid growing recognition of the importance of online security,
the UAE Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), represented by the UAE
Computer Emergency Response Team (aeCERT), in cooperation with Khalifa
University of Science and Technology has partnered with United Business Media
(UBM) to bring to Abu Dhabi the Middle East's first edition of the Las
-based security summit.

Black Hat Abu Dhabi, its first time to be held in the MENA region,
will take place from 8th to 11th November 2010 at the Emirates Palace,
discussing many important security issues, such as protecting the IT
infrastructure, malware and its harmful effects, security of cloud
communications and many other topics that cover many aspects of the security
for governmental entities, public and private firms.

The event comes in line with the aeCERT policy to facilitate
the detection, prevention and response of cyber security incidents; hence,
providing implementation mechanisms for TRA's strategy in supporting a cyber
safe environment for the residents of the UAE.

His Excellency Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim, Director General of
the TRA said: "Holding Black Hat, the world's leading technical security
conference, in Abu Dhabi supports the TRA vision to make the UAE's ICT sector
a leader in the global marketplace. The TRA is proud to be the leading
partner of Black Hat Abu Dhabi."

With limited spaces available, UBM is inviting potential
sponsors, exhibitors and delegates to take part in the mega event, which will
attract only the highest-placed security professionals from government
entities, academia and private companies with the power to make security
buying decisions.

Jeff Moss, founder and Managing Director of Black Hat, stated:
"We are excited to be able to bring Black Hat to the Middle East region to
deliver both a wide variety of deep, technical presentations by the leading
thinkers of the information security world and to provide hands-on,
high-intensity, multi-day training sessions for delegates."

Black Hat Abu Dhabi will offer a full range of sessions,
including ten training programmes running on 8th and 9th November, followed
by three briefing tracks running simultaneously on 10th and 11th alongside
