Research Insights - Oman
Having adopted a forward-looking strategy for information and communications technology (ICT) development a decade ago, Oman has made great strides in building up its technological infrastructure and its capacity, within both the government and the private sector, ICT is seen as central to the country’s long-term economic diversification, as a fundamental support for growth in a range of sectors and as a driver of GDP growth in itself.
As an example of this Oman has one of the world’s more advanced e-government programmes, increasing the administration’s efficiency while bringing services closer to citizens.
In addition to the Oman government’s commitment to the ICT sector, organisations such as Bank Muscat, the flagship financial services provider in the Sultanate have taken awards for Best Performing Business Continuity Plan (BCP) at the regional and global levels.
In line with an ever increasing advance in technology, it is critical to consider how both the financial sector and government entities within Oman will protect such investment to ensure a confident, consistent and robust approach to risk mitigation.
