NESA, UAE Information Assurance standards is the security controls introduced by the Government of UAE to ensure the safety and security of information and related technologies in UAE. NESA standards were developed by National Electronic Security Authority, UAE.
All UAE government entities and other entities identified as critical1 by NESA are obligated to implement NESA Standards. The standard is envisioned so that ‘the adoption of these Standards by UAE entities will sustain the benefits of a trusted digital environment for businesses and individuals across the nation’.
The standard is developed based on Industrial standards such as ISO 27001, NIST and ISO 27032. All UAE government entities and other entities identified as critical1 by NESA are obligated to implement these Standards. However, NESA highly recommends all entities in the UAE to adopt these Standards on a voluntary basis, as applicable, in order to participate in raising the nation’s minimum-security levels.
