The National Cybersecurity Authority has postponed the two-day International Cybersecurity Forum 2022 that had been scheduled to be held in Riyadh on Feb. 2, citing coronavirus concerns.

The Authority said the postponement of the international forum - under the patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz - comes out of concern for safety of the speakers and participants, and as part of the precautionary efforts exerted to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

It added that it will announce at a later date the forum's new schedule.
