AMMAN – The National Cyber Security Center in Jordan seeks to regulate the cybersecurity market in the country through legislation it prepares and issues. The head of the National Cyber Security Center, Bassam Al-Maharmeh, stated that one of the most important measures is the "Cybersecurity Services Licensing System," which will effectively contribute to enhancing and supporting national Jordanian companies wishing to enter the cybersecurity market. اضافة اعلان

According to Jo 24, he said that the system will help improve these services and ensure their ability to compete regionally and globally, enabling these companies to enter neighboring markets and achieve growth and sustainability.

Maharmeh emphasized that the center aims to enhance the role of the private sector in planning and participating in shaping national policies and strategies related to cybersecurity. The private sector is a key participant and contributor to the National Cyber Security Council, responsible for formulating and approving policies, strategies, standards, and controls. The private sector plays a crucial and effective role in the legislative and strategic system and is involved in decision-making.

He noted that the center currently grants approvals to companies interested in operating in the cybersecurity market. The "Cybersecurity Services Licensing System" will be implemented once approved by the Cabinet, as it is currently in its final stages before being implemented.
