Awareness of Information Security in the Middle East


New member

When comparing different regions of the world, countries in the middle east don't rank up very well on the list of Cyber Security Index. What do you think is the reason behind this? Are the entities in the MENA region lacking in the awareness of the importance of Information Security? Or is it that the companies are taking the issue lightly and not giving enough attention to secure themselves? What can be done to prevent a disastrous situation ending up in a huge information and financial loss?

A good place to start is to conduct comprehensive security assessments and then address the gaps.
