Announcing the convening of the 3rd E-Government Forum – Information Management & Security (EGOV3), Mr. Abdullatif Suraie Al-Suraie the Director General of the Central Agency for Information Technology (CAIT) welcomed the patronage of Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad AL-Sabah of the event that is scheduled for 15 – 17 November 2015. Al-Suraie commented by saying, “The patronage of His Highness the Prime Minister reflects an invaluable support of all Kuwaiti leadership of the country’s growth and prosperity. It also signals a much needed support for CAIT’s mission of developing the e-government program for the State of Kuwait in collaboration with all other government agencies. Moreover, we are pleased to work closely with NoufEXPO in organizing this yearly event; it represents a solid partnership 
and cooperation between the public and private sectors.”
The Director General of the Central Agency for Information Technology commented on EGOV3 by saying, “EGOV3 will focus on two technology tracks: information management and information security. These tracks have their impact on the development and implementation of the e-government program and the success and efficiency of its services. Many technology phenomena, today, have their far reaching influence on Information management such as big data analytics, cloud computing, social media, and mobility. Moreover, information management is very much concerned with our disaster recovery plans, business continuity processes, and governance frameworks that control our operations. We believe that the Internet of Things, too, will have its deep influence and implications; and we should be ready. Information security is, no doubt, another ongoing concern that comes along with any IT implementation. Information security became an essential component of national, social, and economic security of any country. Policy makers cannot overlook the impact of information security when they set their national security policies.
 
CAIT is fully aware of the value of information security, its implications, technologies, and processes. We are developing our capabilities and working closely with all concerned parties to protect Kuwait’s information assets.”
 
Al-Suraie continued to say that EGOV3 will be a distinctive technology event gathering many global technology vendors, as well as, many GCC and Kuwaiti IT companies to showcase their products and services. The Forum will host IT leaders and specialists from all government information technology departments. The Forum will dedicate two days for technology presentations, discussions, and knowledge transfer sessions. EGOV3 will be inaugurated by His Excellency Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs and Chairman of the Board of the Central Agency for Information Technology.
 
Mr. Al-Suraie concluded his statement by saying, “We look forward to host all IT leaderships and specialists in Kuwait and other GCC countries. I believe that the accompanying exhibition will witness the display of many products and solutions. EGOV3 Scientific Committee is finalizing the scientific program along with NoufEXPO that is carrying out EGOV3 related logistics.
