The 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup runs from November 20 to December 18, 2022. Qatar has been a controversial host since corruption allegations emerged shortly after both Russia and Qatar were awarded hosting rights for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, respectively.

Controversies have continued, with the need to move the tournament from the traditional Northern Hemisphere off-season summer period to the mid-season winter period to accommodate Qatar’s climate.

While Qatar is considered to be a safe country overall—and major acts of terrorism or violence are unlikely—there are still physical security concerns as well as cybersecurity risks associated with the event. ZeroFox Intelligence has shared their latest observations and assessments in this brief.
