SNSR produces Cybersecurity White Paper
As organisations increase their reliance on IT through rapid digital transformations, the threat of cyber attack grows.
It is not just western countries such as the US and the UK that are being targeted by hackers, as the rapidly developed and wealthy nations of the Middle East become targets of both politically and financially driven attacks. For example, the Saudi Arabia state media confirmed that attacks on several Saudi Arabia government agencies, involving the useof a new variant of Shamoon known as StoneDrill, which destroys everything on the infected computer.
Countries in the Middle East are increasingly investing in information and communication technologies. Social infrastructure, the financial sector, government services, schools, and hospitals in the region are now irreversibly dependent on interconnectivity and the Internet. At the same time, the role of ICTs has become an integral part of the future of domestic and international security architecture in the Middle East, emphasising the need for the development of effective cybersecurity at a regional level.
The majority of global security powers have developed cyberwarfare capabilities and doctrines, and this will inevitably result in more states acquiring this capability in the near future. Non-state actors have also become highly proficientin exploiting cyber vulnerabilities.
This white paper allows you to discover how cyber security expertise can help businesses and governments in the Middle East navigate digital transformations and keep cyber criminals at bay.
