The Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates (CBUAE) has created the CBUAE Networking and Cyber Security Operations Centre within its headquarters in Abu Dhabi, which aims to enhance the protection and security of the financial system's critical infrastructure in the UAE.

The center will establish best practices and guidelines on managing cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities to protect the information infrastructure of the nation's licensed financial institutions. The center will also support all CBUAE-managed and operating systems, applications and services.

CBUAE will continue to develop its practices as technological advancements and cyber threats evolve to prevent, detect and mitigate cyber risks.
