An anti-cyber-terrorism conference will be hosted by Abu Dhabi on May 15th-16 under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. The aim of the conference will be to find a framework that balances between fundamental human rights and international efforts in combating cyber-terrorism.
