Saudi websites target of 68,000 hacking bids every day
The attacks are made against government and private sites, said Abdul Rahman Al-Furaih, director general of the National Information Security Center.
No specific government organization is tasked with protecting official websites from hacking and cybercrimes, said Al-Fuaiah, who added that the role of the Communication and Information Technology Commission is limited to technical support.
Al-Furaih said there is no 100-percent guarantee against hacking, but the risk is reduced if organizations update their security every three months and conduct annual security assessments.
Al-Furaih's statement came after hackers posted pictures of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and a youth wielding a syringe on the website of the Ministry of Education Monday.
