Hackers continue targeting Saudi sectors


(MENAFN) Public and private sectors of Saudi Arabia are still being targeted by Cyber criminals and hackers, according to a top cyber security expert.

Three main reasons that have made Saudi Arabia a regular target for the attacks, said two decades experienced Samer Omar.

Firstly, the fact of Saudi Arabia being wealthy makes this part of the world a valuable target; also the regional conflicts bring about the attention of hackers, cyber criminals and cyber spies.

Last of all, Saudi has an above average infection rate with varying levels of awareness and capabilities.

Omar said, "All verticals have their challenges and although there are a lot of similarities, the nuances of industrial control systems/SCADA systems, financial systems, or other web applications need to be addressed differently".
