SAMA Compliance

The SAMA Cybersecurity Framework (SCF) is a framework developed by the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) for managing cybersecurity risks in the financial sector. The SCF is based on international best practices and is designed to be flexible and adaptable to the specific needs of financial institutions in Saudi Arabia. The framework consists of five main pillars: governance, risk management, asset management, incident management, and continuous improvement. Each of these pillars includes a set of specific requirements and guidance for financial institutions to follow in order to effectively manage cybersecurity risks. The goal of the SCF is to help financial institutions in Saudi Arabia protect their assets, maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their systems and information,and ensure the continuity of their operations.
