RIYADH, May 31, 2024 – (ACN Newswire via SeaPRwire.com) – As technology advances, modern computer-assisted and Internet crimes are on the rise, necessitating a closer examination of cybercrime and computer forensics in the region. Saudi Arabia, being one of the Middle East’s fastest-growing nations in terms of Internet and mobile phone usage, faces significant challenges in this arena. This exploration particularly focuses on the impact of Internet use and cybercrime on adolescents, highlighting the urgent need for enhanced cybersecurity measures.

In August 2021, a significant cyber attack targeted a major entity in Saudi Arabia, demanding a $50 million ransom in cryptocurrency for the return of approximately 1 terabyte of sensitive data. The breach exploited vulnerabilities in a third-party contractor, prompting immediate isolation of affected systems and collaboration with cybersecurity authorities for investigation and mitigation. This incident underscored the vulnerability of critical infrastructure and emphasized the necessity for robust cybersecurity protocols.

The attack spurred a comprehensive review of cybersecurity measures, leading to upgrades in firewalls, encryption techniques, and third-party vendor protocols. Additionally, it catalyzed increased investment in cybersecurity infrastructure and advanced technologies like generative AI and quantum computing to fortify defenses against future threats. With the rapid adoption of digital technologies, Saudi Arabia must integrate AI-driven defenses while remaining vigilant against AI-enhanced threats.
