Promoting a cyber-resilient ecosystem
New Cybersecurity Compliance Certification will help bring suppliers in line with Aramco’s industry-best practices.
In its continuous effort to promote a cyber-resilient ecosystem, Aramco has launched a certification for its suppliers that demonstrates their compliance with our cybersecurity standard, which is aligned with industry-best practices.
The company recently signed agreements with nine audit firms in launching its Cybersecurity Compliance Certification (CCC). These nine are the first to join Aramco’s list of authorized audit firms to issue the certification.

These collaborations are seen as critical in a cybersecurity field that continues to witness unprecedented advancements and challenges due to its evolving risk landscape.
The CCC is in line with the objective of promoting cybersecurity localization opportunities, given the current gap and expected demand growth.

“It would unleash new potentials and prospects for qualified local cybersecurity professionals and institutions,” said Al-Ulyan.
Accelerating our cybersecurity posture
Basim A. Al-Ruwaii, Aramco’s chief information security officer, noted the CCC’s success depends on collaboration with regional organizations to raise the cybersecurity posture of the energy supply chain.
“The global supply chain has become more interconnected than ever, and it is inevitable that cybersecurity will be part of our business DNA. It is among our key priorities at Aramco to address cyber risks and ensure resilience of our supply chain.
“Therefore, we look forward to expand our partnerships for the CCC to timely address supply chain cyber risks,” said Al-Ruwaii.
