As the ongoing cyber war continues to affect the Arab region, the GCC authorities issued last month a new Cybercrime Law.  The law is expected to address the rise in electronic crime which embraces such crimes as credit card frauds, internet crimes, cyber terrorism, creation and/or distribution of viruses, hacking, system interference, illegal access and interception, and so on.

The major objectives of this law are as follows:

-Ensuring the GCC governments’ commitment to fight against cybercrime.
-Implementing strict measures towards ensuring cyber security.
-Setting a national plan to face any threats or abductions on cyber safety.
-Providing quality control on data protection.
-Creating awareness of the importance of cyber safety.
