The article I chose is about the first cyber defense center in the Middle East. The defense center was opened by “leading international intelligence company McAfee”. Opening a cyber defense center in the Middle East was very important for McAfee because the Middle East has become a “region with the greatest threat of cyber crime in the world”. The defense center opened by McAfee is located in the Dubai, which is a city located in the United Arab Emirates. Dubai was a very important location for McAfee to place a defense center in because Dubai is “one of the most critical Internet exchanges in the world and much of the world’s economy was linked to the Middle East through trade, travel and oil and gas”. The defense center is focusing on collecting information on potential threats and cyber criminals. It also plans on gathering general data that can help “governments, institutions, and companies” prevent and respond to cyber crimes.
