Riyadh Airports leads the way with its cyber risk strategy

Run(a)way Success is a case study, which was published in the 2021 DME Impact Report. The article explores the different challenges the aviation industry continues to face including the forecasted double-digit growth and the need to manage cybersecurity risks amid the ongoing digital transformation.

As part of the privatization program of the aviation sector in Saudi Arabia, which forms part of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, “Riyadh Airports Company (RAC)” was created and is now managing and operating King Khaled International Airport (KKIA) in the Saudi capital.

In its role, Deloitte and RAC upgraded KKIA’s infrastructure and expanded facilities with new services, thus playing a major role in the modern transformation of the Kingdom.

Through such a partnership, RAC and Deloitte have demonstrated the benefits of collaboration in managing current and potential cyber risks while strengthening the organization for the future on its digital transformation journey.

In so doing, RAC has played a pioneering role in managing aviation cybersecurity risk in the Kingdom and provided a success story that can inspire others to follow.
