Unprepared for Cybersecurity in Saudi Arabia: Argument for a Shift Towards Cyber Readiness


In this paper, the researcher briefly discusses the attacks that have occurred
recently within Saudi Arabia to entities such as Saudi Aramco to the Ministry of
Health. These attacks are aggressions against government institutions that can
render a sector vulnerable. Observing the ongoing attacks on critical infrastructure
in Ukraine one can see a replication of similar attacks that could occur and spread
over the Middle East. As this nation is a politically turbulent region, there is no
small number of external threats. To combat these evolving threat, a shift towards
cyber readiness must occur. This includes new laws, security hardened
technologies, and education for people living in the kingdom.
