SAMA – Saudia Arabian Monetary Authority – Compliance

SAMA is the pinnacle of Enterprise Risk Management. CDWT offers fully managed compliance solutions and services.


Maximize information security and guarantee total protection of corporate operations with SAMA (Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority) compliance, governed by the Saudi Central Bank.

Saudi Arabia’s central bank is referred to as the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA). SAMA controls and regulates the legality, procedures, and information security plans of all regional financial institutions and banking institutions. A few years ago, SAMA introduced the Cyber Security Framework to guide financial institutions with standard protocols, top-tier cybersecurity practises, and methodologies to build cyber resilience within the organization’s practises and protect databases, workloads, assets, information flows, and sensitive digital data from all emerging cyber threats.

The Framework’s objectives include designing a common cybersecurity management approach for SAMA-affiliated finance organisations, assisting organisations in attaining commendable levels of security, and ensuring that all threats are managed appropriately using the most recent technologies and frameworks. The Framework considers SAMA’s criteria in addition to NIST, ISF, ISO, BASEL, and PCI’s leading cybersecurity standards.

Emerging protection against cyberattacks and threats

The reserve bank often updates and revises security standards to ensure that banks and other financial service providers are current with new regulatory criteria and better equipped to cope with emerging risks.

Maintain legal compliance and currency

The Saudi Central Bank's examination of SAMA compliance offers a detailed, repeatable, step-by-step road map. The whole procedure is readily documentable, and there are several internet tools available to assist. You need not recreate the wheel every time. It is easy and saves much time and effort.

Improve Business Reputation

Compliance with SAMA is undeniably a differentiation. In today's day of intense competition, it is quite tough to distinguish your brand. In addition to boosting security with comprehensive gap analysis, it sends a clear statement that you respect your customers' privacy. This especially assists financial service providers in enhancing their brand reputation.

Improved Information Administration

The majority of suppliers of financial services place a premium on risk management and compliance. Certification for SAMA compliance helps companies to perform a comprehensive internal audit and establish a more effective and quantifiable information security strategy. This provides the highest level of security for classified and sensitive client data.
