Back to Oman then!

I just stumbled across the news story below in The Times of fact it's one of the nicest countries to visit and many of the locals don't mind socialising over a couple of pints in the interest of building good international relations! I don't think Tony Neate realises that he's now head of the NHTCU though!

Conference to moot security benchmark for e-banking

Future Event, in association with Omantel and Scanit Middle East, is organising a two-day conference on banking, financial technology and security awareness in December this year, a press release said.

The conference (December 11-12) being held under the patronage of Hamood Sangour Al Zadjali, executive president of the Central Bank of Oman (CBO), will be an open forum for discussing the future banking and financial technology trends in the region, especially e-banking.

The meet is expected to moot the possibilities of establishing a regional security benchmark to which banks can subscribe. Bankers, financial sector captains and IT specialists from all over the world will attend the conference. The conference is expected to be a major step towards arriving at a definition of a security benchmark for e-banking.

It will also explore the technology that will secure the e-business strategies for both traditional commercial banking and investment deals.

The conference is expected to provide a venue to cement existing business opportunities as well as develop new business opportunities for key-decision makers in both finance and technology communities. The speaker panel includes Dr Simon Moores, a leading e-adviser; Tony Neate, chief executive of UK’s National Hi-Tech Crime Unit; leading experts such as Sir Brain Pitman, Dr James Lawler, David Murray and Professor Chris Mitchell.
