Omantel: Improving the business relevance of the Security and Risk management program 


Omantel recently established the Information Security division headed by a General Manager, reporting to the COO after realizing how much value a security program could add as an enabler to the digital business and to mitigate ICT risks that could otherwise have an adverse impact on the business.


However, as a new security program within an established telecom organization, Omantel faced with the challenge of integrating the security program into the fabrics of the organization in the absence of senior management support.
