  • SAMA Compliance

In 2017, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) introduced a SAMA Cyber Security Framework (CSF). The SAMA Framework is introduced to create a cybersecurity management approach and information security strategies for all financial institutions governed and regulated by SAMA. The SAMA Framework safeguards the confidentiality, integrity, and privacy of all financial institutions’ information assets and online services against the constantly evolving cybersecurity threats and financial frauds. The SAMA Framework provides all financial institutions best cybersecurity practices and standard protocols to enhance organizational cyber resilience. All financial institutions such as banks, insurance and reinsurance companies, money exchangers, and other finance companies regulated by the SAMA are known as Member Organizations.
