UAE needs better protection of critical infrastructure The protection of the critical national infrastructure involving oil, gas, water and electricity in the UAE is lagging, according to an official at the National Electronic Security Authority (Nesa). This could cause major disturbances to key services such as the supply of water and electricity, Dr Saud Al Junaibi said at the fourth Electronic Warfare GCC conference in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. "Critical infrastructure is a place where most of the attackers try to get into and disturb critical services," he said during his presentation on cyber warfare. "This is because oil and gas as well as utility sectors provide major and key services to countries like the UAE and these are usually targeted by different threats to disturb services."
