STC has signed an agreement with Anomali Company to establish a platform for sharing information about and dealing with cyber threats.

The agreement will also allow STC to upgrade its cybersecurity infrastructure, and support an early alarm system for potential attacks and to predict attacks.

Said STC cybersecurity general manager Eng. Yasser Alswailem following the signing: “Our aim is to continue enhancing cybersecurity for the infrastructure of STC group [and] to protect customers’ data, through bilateral agreements with specialised companies in analysing cyber data to provide information about cyber threats via interactive platforms at the right time.”
