Morocco and UAE forged a new partnership to further enhance cybersecurity cooperation and securing the digital space. The agreement was signed between the General Directorate of Information Systems Security Administration of the National Defence of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Cyber Security Council for the United Arab Emirates.
The partnership aims to create a broad framework for cooperation between Morocco and the UAE in the realm of cybersecurity. By doing so, both nations recognize the critical role cybersecurity plays in the success of their digital transformation efforts and overall economic and social growth. As technology continues to advance, the need for robust cybersecurity measures to counteract the growing threats has become paramount.
Both entities will establish a joint committee that will be responsible for planning and overseeing the implementation of these cooperation activities, along with setting the timelines for these initiatives. This committee will meet annually, alternating between Morocco and the UAE, and as needed to address pressing cybersecurity issues.
The partnership marks the beginning of a new chapter in cybersecurity collaboration between Morocco and the UAE, serving as a model for international cooperation in the ever-evolving domain of cybersecurity. By fostering cooperation in these crucial areas, the two nations aim to contribute to the broader efforts of secure cyberspace regionally and globally.
