The State of Qatar is the first country in the Middle East to issue guidelines focused on the application of security standards to address and reduce threats and cyber-attacks in the civil aviation sector, which will contribute to the awareness of all stakeholders and employees of the civil aviation in Qatar, and guide them to follow the best practices in cybersecurity.
