Numerous things in our lives rely on upon advanced innovation, which makes Cyber security ought to be one of our nation’s most vital national security needs. While the UAE Government is taking steps to keep our cyber community safe, the government alone cannot solve the problem. Cyber security is a common obligation. From law legislation to academic education and most importantly members of the public, we each as individuals need to do our part to keep the Internet safe. When UAE locals become more accountable in terms of their own cyber intelligence, it makes using the Internet a more secure experience for their country. And that is what Offensive Bits aspires to implement.
