STC BECOMES THE FIRST SAUDI ENTITY TO BE ADMITTED MEMBERSHIP TO THE WORLD-RENOWNED FORUM OF INCIDENT RESPONSE AND SECURITY TEAMS (FIRST).
STC announced today that it has been admitted to the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) after successfully completing the requirements to join this prestigious and world-renowned non-profit organization. Membership requires an endorsement from at least two existing FIRST members as well as an audit by one of them to verify and validate compliance. This milestone was achieved prior to the 30th annual conference being held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. STC is the first entity from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to meet the requirements and now joins a handful of other GCC entities and a global constellation of government agencies, telecommunications providers, security vendors, international technology firms and more. “It is our honor to welcome STC Group as the first Saudi member to the Forum. As a global community of technologists that respond to security incidents, we are excited to work with STC Group to understand better the cyber security challenges organizations in Saudi Arabia face. We look forward to collaborating and learning with STC Group, and hopefully, through them, welcoming more members from Saudi Arabia to the Forum” commented Thomas Schreck, Chair, FIRST “Becoming a member of FIRST demonstrates STC’s commitment to be a global cyber security partner to our clients, partners and beyond” commented Mr. Yasser Alswailem – General Manger of Cyber Security for STC Group. “Our commitment is to operate at a world class level when it comes to Cyber Security and this is just one step of many” added Mr. Alswailem. STC will leverage its new standing to exchange technical information, tools, methodologies, processes and best practices with other FIRST members. STC hopes to support the creation and expansion of Incident Response teams in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia across all sectors.
