NCA Compliance with Fortra

See How Fortra Solutions Align With the National Cybersecurity Authority Essential Cybersecurity Controls

The National Cybersecurity Authority (NCA) is the government entity in charge of cybersecurity in Saudi Arabia, encompassing both regulatory and operational functions related to cybersecurity.

National Cybersecurity Authority Essential Cybersecurity Controls

The NCA works closely with public and private entities to improve the cybersecurity posture of the country in order to safeguard its vital interests, national security, critical infrastructures, high-priority sectors, and government services and activities. The NCA’s Essential Cybersecurity Controls (ECC) take the cybersecurity needs of all organizations and sectors in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, meaning that every organization therein must comply.

According to NCA, it has developed the Essential Cybersecurity Controls “after conducting a comprehensive study of multiple national and international cybersecurity frameworks and standards, studying related national decisions, law and regulatory requirements, reviewing and leveraging cybersecurity best practices, analyzing previous cybersecurity incidents and attacks on government and other critical organizations, and surveying and considering opinions of multiple national organizations.”

Fortra’s solution portfolio offers deep coverage for NCA ECC Domains 1 and 2, from cybersecurity awareness to web application security. See the table below to learn how each NCA maps to its corresponding Fortra solution.
