Increased Digitization and Usage of Smart Devices in GCC Region Can Further Boost the Cyber Security Market

An analyst at BIS Research has estimated that the GCC Cyber Security market will increase to $10.41 billion in 2022.

The GCC region has become the centre point for cyber attacks because of the region’s strategic and economic significance on a global level. The region acquires a significant share of the world’s total energy resources and is an emerging consumer for the use of smart devices which makes it more vulnerable to cyber attacks. GCC countries need to intensify their cyber capabilities and expand their current security partnerships in order to address Cyber Security. The failure to implement strong Cyber Security will raise the risks of cyber attacks in the GCC region.

A market study by BIS Research, titled, “GCC Cyber Security market – Estimation & Forecast (2014-2022)” has acknowledged the implementation of the Cyber Security in the GCC region. The combination of attacks on Saudi Aramco and the banks in the GCC region has put major Gulf countries on the notice of the kind of new cyber threats they might face in the future. Therefore, Cyber Security will prove to be an important element of any organization in the GCC region.
