Aramco Cybersecurity Compliance Certification (CCC) Assistance

Boost your security posture, ensure compliance, strengthen cybersecurity and partner with Saudi ARAMCO!

ARAMCO Cybersecurity Compliance services from Wattlecorp help you reinforce third-party security posture towards zero cyber risks aligning with TPCS.


Saudi Aramco is the largest integrated oil and gas company in the world. It deals with huge volumes of data that are sensitive in nature, and is highly vulnerable to malicious cyber-attacks. To protect itself, it introduced cybersecurity compliance certifications to make sure that the businesses that partnered with them followed their security and quality requirements stringently.

The SACS-002, or Saudi Aramco Third Party Cybersecurity Standard, was established to ensure that all third parties or supply chain partners comply with certain cybersecurity requirements to protect the vital information and assets of Saudi ARAMCO from cyber threats.  The set of cybersecurity requirements is also known as the Third-Party Cybersecurity Standard (SACS-002). All vendors who with to do business with Saudi Aramco must comply with these requirements. There are several business-critical requirements, like assessing the ICT infrastructure, checking for glaring security gaps, and fixing them as per the best practices laid down in the SACS-002. Businesses are then required to furnish a report confirming that they have implemented and are maintaining adequate security practices, with proper evidence. When the ARAMCO organization is satisfied, they will issue the Cybersecurity Compliance Certificate for the business.

Vendors who are already part of the Saudi Aramco supply chain and those who want to tie up with them, must be in compliance with the requirements as stated in the Third-Party Cybersecurity Standard (SACS-002) and produce the certificate.

Understanding Aramco Cybersecurity Certification

Saudi Aramco introduced two classes of cybersecurity certifications for their supply chain partners depending on the nature of work outsourced to them, or the classification of the company. One was the Cybersecurity Compliance Certification or CCC and the other was the Cybersecurity Compliance Certification Plus, or CCC+.


These certifications aim to mitigate cyber risk, protect from possible vulnerabilities and ensure a robust security posture for third parties, as this was a major source of threat for Saudi Aramco for several years.

Challenges Faced In Getting ARAMCO CCC Certification

While the Aramco CCC is mandatory for doing business with ARAMCO and offers several benefits, it is not without its challenges.

  • Vendors may need to shell out significant resources in terms of people and money to get certified and not everyone may be willing to do that, especially when the awareness about cybersecurity is low.
  • There are several legislations both domestic and international that vendors need to comply with, making the process more complicated.
  •  The certification is not a one-and-done thing. Organizations have to constantly ensure that their operations and procedures are as expected by the SACS-002. It can be a continuous struggle to keep up with changing regulations and advancements in cybersecurity procedures.

Of course, these challenges can be easily overcome when you entrust Wattlecorp with auditing your procedures to help you get certified.

The ideal time to apply to renew your Aramco CCC certificate is shortly before the validity period of two years comes to a close.

To ensure compliance, your business must submit a renewal application for the CCC Certificate before the end of the two-year validity period.

A self-assessment test to compare with the SACS-002 controls is sufficient for third-parties who want to get CCC certified. They can ask for one of the authorized firms to validate the compliance assessment package remotely.

To get the CCC+ certification, third-party vendors who are classified as critical data processors or network connectivity providers will have to get one of the authorized firms to carry out their online assessment by comparing with the scope controls as set out in SACS-002.

Go to the e-marketplace system to upload both your Aramco CCC and the CCC report to Saudi Aramco.

That depends entirely on the type of engagement and classification you belong to. If the classification is the same, there is no need for a new certificate. However, if it changes, you may need to approach one of the authorized audit firms to carry out an assessment to verify your compliance levels against the scoped controls set out in SACS-002. This will cover everything in the category previously covered along with the new ones.
