Thakaa Center for Internet of Things and Cyber Security was established to achieve one of the objectives of the Kingdom’s 2030 economic vision. The mission of the center is to enable startups and small and medium enterprises to operate and use innovations based on the Internet of Things and Cyber Security technologies.

No, we specialized in raising competencies and talents in data science, artificial intelligence, and technology in general, but we can coordinate with our partners incubators and accelerators in some cases to provide management consulting.

There is no fee for this, but the center's management will internally evaluate the priorities for usage requests in order of importance.

The center serves the kingdom as a whole and not only the eastern region, but the majority of our activities will be at the center’s headquarters in Riyadh, and some major events will be organized in other cities to spread the benefit, and the events will be recorded and published on the Internet and broadcast live as well, and you can get advice from anywhere In the Kingdom via online chat.

Yes, the center is for everyone, but it is our duty and in order to achieve the goals of the center in the development of enterprises, we focus priority on emerging projects and then small and medium companies in case of crowding.
