The Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference (GISEC) that will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center from May 31 to June 2, 2021, will see SANS Institute joining it as the Official Training Partner.
Confirming its participation at the event, SANS Institute further stated that it will bring several new products likes Cyber Ranges, SANS Foundations and CyberStart to the event, and also display its latest range of world-leading training courses and certifications. These products help promote cyber resilience and empower organizations to deal with security challenges in the post-pandemic new normal.
SANS Institute has been working relentlessly with government and commercial organizations in the region, and helping upskill security professionals and introducing new talent into the cybersecurity industry.
“The pandemic has forced organizations to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives, which has put them at risk in new and unprecedented ways,” said Ned Baltagi, Managing Director Middle East and Africa, SANS Institute. “Cybersecurity is now front and center of these initiatives. However, the gap for cybersecurity jobs is widening and organizations need to act now to equip and train their staff with skills to deliver best-in-class defense. At GISEC 2021, we plan to highlight this message and demonstrate how our programs can help organizations arm themselves against potential cyber-attacks and narrow the cybersecurity skills gap,” he further said.
Cyber Ranges is a comprehensive suite of hands-on ranges that come with industry-leading interactive learning scenarios – like the SANS BootUp CTF, NetWars Tournaments & Continuous and NetWars CyberCity.
SANS Institute will also talk about SANS Foundations that has been designed to impart core knowledge and develop practical skills in computers, technology, and security foundations. CyberStart Game on the other hand is an online gamified learning platform used in the classroom or accessed at home and is available to students, teachers and young adults across the Middle East and Africa region.
Visitors coming to GISEC 2021 can drop by at Booth C14 to interact with experts from SANS Institute. GISEC has emerged as the Arab world’s largest and most impactful cybersecurity event over the years. The three-day event will serve as an ideal focused platform for cybersecurity companies to showcase their solutions and products.
