A new digital era is bringing forth huge demands in data transmission, storage, computation and more supporting deep technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI). 5G and the cloud are the fundamental twin pillars to support the rapid digital transformation accelerated by demands brought about by the pandemic. In particular, 5G has been recognised as a cornerstone for the proliferation of big data and AI, as well as being the enabler for the adoption of other deep technologies, including Internet of Things (IoT), Fintech (blockchain, cryptocurrency and e-wallet), autonomous vehicles, and drones.

The UAE has always been committed to building the most advanced telecom system in the world, as evidenced in the various world records that the UAE has achieved. Ensuring telecom cybersecurity and resilience is critical to enable the UAE to continue telling its story in the metaverse over the next 50 years, while also maintaining its leading position globally in telecom infrastructure, service rollout and application, and digital transformation as well.

UAE telecom cybersecurity guidance describes how to speed up the development of our security regime to build trust and confidence that the UAE will have the world’s most advanced, resilient and trustworthy telecom system with easy to understand and adopt telecom cybersecurity governance principles, management and implementation framework with self-improving and correction mechanism built in. This objective aims to reinforce the UAE's standing as a globally trusted digital hub and a trusted cyber oasis. It will be achieved through a forward-thinking, open and collaborative framework harnessing the strengths and benefits of global best practices and international standards such as the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation Collaboration of Computer Emergency Response Team (OIC-CERT) 5G Security Framework, GSMA and 3GPP security models, towards the end of building a world-first telecom ISMS.
