The competition has been designed to encourage academic study and research excellence in the field of cyber security, by asking research students to develop ideas and solutions for the current and future challenges of cyber security. 
 
The DESC initiative for the competition highlights Dubai Cyber Security Strategy particularly focusing on a cyber smart society, innovation, cyberspace security and local and international security.

Speaking about the competition, Dr Bushra Al Blooshi, DESC Research Innovation Manager said, “The innovation award reiterates DESC support to ‘The Year of Zayed' vision by actively encouraging and involving the academic community to unravel and address the challenges of rapid technological development.” “At a time when technology is positively impacting lives, cyber risk is ever-evolving and increasing rapidly. We need the contribution and knowledge of scientists, scholars and academics to make our society safer and secure. Therefore, in accordance with our cyber security strategy, we are encouraging scholars to conduct innovative research in the field of cyber security and protection of the digital world in both the UAE and the world,” she added.
