At the “Security Planning: Ask the Right Questions” Panel, Eng. Yehia El Gohary, Information Security Deputy Senior Manager at eFinance, spoke about how measuring awareness levels and holding various awareness tests, along with training and awareness sessions for all employees in all jobs and job levels, are all important parts of the planning policies for protection because problems always arise and are unintentional due to the employee's lack of sufficient awareness.

At the “Supply Chain Attacks: How to Control what You Can’t Control” Panel, Eng. Atef Mohamed, IT & Cloud Director at eFinance, spoke about how the full value of the supply chain must be taken care of because it strengthens the various departments that work within the supply chain in one way or another.

At the “Securing from Within: Building a Strong Defense against Insider Threats” Panel, Eng. Mahmoud Ebied, IT & Cloud Operation Deputy Senior Manager at eFinance, spoke about how there are many businesses that are dealing with threats from within, and there are numerous solutions available.

There must be policies in place to deal with this kind of threat by providing guidelines for spotting suspicious behavior and learning from past mistakes.
