Established by the Presidency of Turkish Defence Industries (SSB) in 2018, the Turkish Cyber Security Cluster works on designing mechanisms to increase the sales volumes of member companies domestically and abroad and to provide support in regard to the markets preferred by the members.
With the support of the SSB, the Cluster participated in the Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC) held in Dubai to study the MENA region, which its members count among the target regions.
The event, which brought together cyber security companies, end users, integrators and distributors from the countries of the region, also provided the opportunity to meet with military and civil procurement authorities.
Israel and Germany were also preset at the fair, where more than 180 companies participated with their booths.
Participating in GISEC for the first time with a "country booth", Turkey revealed its capabilities in this field. Seven cluster member companies specializing in different areas of cyber security introduced their products and services at GISEC, the largest and most effective cyber security event in the Arab world.
At the fair officials from HAVELSAN, STM, ARKSIGNER, LOGSIGN, CYBERWISE-SECURRENT, FORESTALL and UITSEC held meetings with senior managers from other technology companies in the region.
Senior Turkish executives and company owners working in the region received detailed information about the member companies of the cluster and they held talks on cooperation that will serve the region.
Nearly 200 companies that are members of the Turkish Cyber Security Cluster have more than 400 products and solutions. The cluster aims to both meet Turkey's cyber security needs and contribute to the country's economy through exports.
