ROSHN Group has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming, and Drones (SAFCSP) during LEAP, the Riyadh-based annual technology event, in order to further national tech capabilities.

The Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming, and Drones is a national institution in Saudi Arabia aiming at developing professional skills in the fields of cybersecurity and programming.

Both parties will develop joint initiatives aimed at enhancing the abilities of the Saudi IT and cybersecurity sectors.

ROSHN will look to explore the use of drone technologies in its operations, and also participate in SAFSCP’s Bug Rewards Platform (Bug Bounty), which takes a proactive approach to identifying and fixing cybersecurity vulnerabilities, as an initial opening to more joint programs.

According to the statement, “ROSHN and the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming, and Drones will explore technologies to create smart buildings using networking solutions and Internet-Of-Things (IoT) technologies.”

LEAP is the Kingdom’s leading technology event, aimed at diversifying and expanding the Saudi economy by connecting global business leaders and tech giants with local companies and talent.

ROSHN Group is Saudi Arabia’s most trusted real estate developer and a giga-project wholly owned by the Kingdom’s Public Investment Fund (PIF). ROSHN’s multi-asset portfolio of integrated developments offers a new way of living for Saudi Arabia, featuring connected amenities in walking distance with green spaces, sports hubs, and cycle lanes.

Earlier this year, ROSHN entered a partnership with Partanna Arabia in order to collaborate on the potential construction of a state-of-the-art carbon-negative concrete production facility.
