Booz Allen Hamilton will target government and commercial clients in Qatar in the information technology, cybersecurity, transportation and select infrastructure sectors.
The McLean, Va.-based firm said it received the Qatari government’s approval to conduct business in that country.
Qatar placed 28th out of 142 countries surveyed in the World Economic Forum's global information and communications report for 2012, said Don Pressley, senior vice president and head of Middle East and North African operations.
The company’s non-compete agreement with international and commercial Booz and Co. expired in 2011, three years after spinning off that business.
Booz Allen has established a MENA regional headquarters office in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Civil government, defense and security clients will receive help in developing technological capabilities that address security of data, systems, and infrastructure in the midst of increasing cyberattacks in the country, the company said.
Organizations will also receive expertise in the energy, financial services and healthcare sectors.
