The SAMA Definition of Cyber Security:

Within the SAMA Framework, Cyber security is defined as the collection of tools, policies, security concepts, security safeguards, guidelines, risk management approaches, actions, training, best practices, assurance, and technologies that can be used to protect the member organization's information assets against internal and external threats.

The Framework provides cyber security controls which are applicable to the information assets of the Member Organization, including:

  • Electronic information.
  • Physical information (hardcopy).
  • Applications, software, electronic services and databases.
  • Computers and electronic machines (e.g., ATM).
  • Information storage devices (e.g., hard disk, USB stick).
  • Premises, equipment and communication networks (technical infrastructure).
NNT SecureOps™ is the perfect solution for operating and demonstrating SAMA compliance.
