— Set, and supervise the implementation of standards for ensuring Electronic security in the Emirate
— Monitor compliance by Government Entities with the Information Security requirements issued by the DESC, and follow up implementation of these requirements
— Cooperate with regional and international organizations in relation to the work of the DESC.
— Combat various cybercrimes and Information technology crimes
