The National Cybersecurity Authority (NCA) credits Saudi Arabia’s rise in cybersecurity rankings to its concerted efforts at both local and international levels, reported SPA.

A key initiative is the launch of the Global Cybersecurity Forum (GCF), a platform for global dialogue on strategic cybersecurity issues. The GCF Institute further promotes international collaboration in this vital sector.

Additionally, Saudi Arabia has spearheaded the establishment of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Cybersecurity Ministerial Committee and the Council of Arab Cybersecurity Ministers, underscoring the Kingdom’s commitment to regional and pan-Arab cooperation.

Dr. Musaed Al-Aiban, Chairman of the NCA Board of Directors, congratulated the Saudi leadership on this achievement, highlighting it as a confirmation of the country’s leading role in international cybersecurity and a testament to its commitment to Saudi Vision 2030. He attributed this success to the continuous guidance of His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, whose vision has positioned the Kingdom as a global model in various fields.

Al-Aiban emphasized the strategic development of the cybersecurity sector in the Kingdom, guided by Vision 2030. This development focuses on both security and growth aspects, with a strong emphasis on domestic and international dimensions. He noted that the Saudi model has become a pioneer in the field, attracting international emulation.

The NCA, established as the central authority, works in tandem with the Saudi Information Technology Company (SITE), its technical arm. The NCA has conducted cybersecurity exercises with over 40 countries, demonstrating its commitment to international collaboration.

Domestically, the NCA prioritizes cybersecurity through regulations, partnerships with industry stakeholders, and targeted initiatives, ensuring robust protection and continuous advancement in the cybersecurity sector.
