Rapid digitisation

For a secure digital transition, proactive cybersecurity is vital, covering each stage with strong measures to protect sensitive data and critical systems, ensuring integrity, confidentiality, and availability. Digitalisation spans politics, economics, science, and culture, heightening the necessity for cybersecurity against increasing cyber threats.

 

Technological dependence

As technology becomes deeply integrated into consumers' daily lives, encompassing everything from online personal data storage to interconnected devices, individuals are increasingly vulnerable to new risks. Cyber threats, data breaches, and privacy concerns have emerged as pervasive issues, necessitating cybersecurity and proactive precautions.

 

E-commerce platforms

Most cyber-attacks, particularly those targeting commercial entities, are orchestrated by cybercriminals seeking financial profit. These attacks typically involve stealing sensitive data like customer credit card details or employee personal information, which is then exploited to access funds or goods using victims' identities, underscoring the need for heightened cybersecurity measures.

 

Government initiatives

Government efforts encompass a range of initiatives including raising cybercrime awareness, issuing alerts/advisories, bolstering law enforcement capabilities, and enhancing cyber forensic facilities. Notably, the Council of Arab Foreign Ministers established a Cybersecurity Council in 2023 to foster collaboration among MENA countries on cybersecurity issues. This is driving the cybersecurity market in Middle East and Africa.

 

Middle East and Africa Cybersecurity Market Trends

In a cyber conflict, attacks aim to inflict physical harm on a nation's vital infrastructure, such as energy, healthcare, transportation, finance, telecommunications, and government networks.

 

For example, in 2023, the Rhysida ransomware group claimed responsibility for a cyberattack on Abdali Hospital in Jordan, resulting in the substantial theft of sensitive data, as reported by Security Affairs of Jordan.

 

In recent months, Cyber Toufan, a hacking collective, has targeted more than 100 public and private entities in Israel, as part of a vigorous campaign fuelled by escalating geopolitical tensions in the area.
