SAMA Cybersecurity Framework

SAMA Cybersecurity Framework


Witnessing the increased cyber threats, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) In May 2017, established a Cyber Security Framework to help Saudi Arabian Banking, insurance, and many other financial institutes safeguard against cyber threats. This framework guides SAMA-regulated entities with certain rules and controls.

In order to comply with the SAMA Cyber Security Framework, every organization must do:

  • Erase data from all its devices when it is unused
  • Must achieve data sanitization and should remove unfiltered data permanently and unrecoverable from all its devices.
  • Make sure the data is completely destroyed from all its devices before resale, recycling or destruction

It becomes difficult for an organization to comply with all the rules without leaving a speck of flaw. Therefore, many organizations or financial institutions take the help of the experts in the field like MatinQ Cybersecurity services to ensure complete security.
