Cybersecurity Improvement Opportunities in Saudi Arabia

With a diverse media market, a modern telecommunications network, and a growing digital infrastructure, Saudi Arabia is simultaneously focused on becoming a leading digital economy and improving its cybersecurity and safety networks to protect against digital threats.

Saudi Arabia boasts one of the largest information and communications technology markets in the Middle East, supporting a population of 32 million — thus, the nation sees cyber threats as no small concern. With a record of 921,512 malware files and threats at the beginning of 2018, the nation improved its digital protection sphere throughout the year, decreasing its ransomware threats to only 0.55 percent of the global 1.7 billion annual attacks.
