Saudi Arabia ranked second globally in the cybersecurity index, as part of the World Competitiveness Yearbook 2022 report issued by the Global Competitiveness Center of the International Institute for Management Development in Switzerland.
This report is one of the most comprehensive in the world and aims to analyze and rank countries’ ability to create, maintain and develop a supportive and stimulating environment for competitiveness.
The National Cybersecurity Authority indicated that this achievement is the result of the support and empowerment of King Salman and his Crown Prince, which gave it a strong boost in the path of global leadership.
The authority explained that the cybersecurity system in the Kingdom aims to enhance the competitiveness of the sector, seize the promising opportunities in it, and keep pace with the renewable changes in a way that reflects the national ambition in this field.
The authority indicated that the prestigious global position in the cybersecurity index is the result of hard work represented in unique outputs, including the establishment of the National Academy for Cyber Security, and the implementation of advanced cyber exercises at the national level.
