Sans Institute has announced its Dubai February 2022 cybersecurity training programme. The training will be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Waterfront, from February 12-17.

Using interactive exercises led by cybersecurity professionals, the event aims to equip participants with the knowledge necessary to protect their organisations against security breaches, and to provide them with skills they can immediately apply.

With the acceleration of remote working owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, majority of organisations in the UAE have turned to the cloud for their business purposes. As a consequence of the increase in hybrid workforces, organisations must invest in stronger security measures to prevent business interruption from cyberthreats and ensure that the steps they take are in accordance with industry norms and laws.

“The best way to ensure protection is from within, and the greatest defence comes from having an informed workforce,” stated Ned Baltagi, managing director, Middle East and Africa at Sans Institute. “Investing in training programmes and upskilling current employees is vital in the fight against cybercrime as it ensures proactive incident-response from a trusted team, rather than relying on external parties to protect your business.

“The digital world as we know it continues to change every day. Cloud platforms have changed how data is stored and accessed, and teams need to have calculated strategies in place to secure their critical information in line with these changes,” Baltagi added.

The course content covers how to effectively locate, identify, and collect data from wherever it is stored on cloud environments; develop and apply a framework based on actual threats to stop attacks in accordance with requirements documented by the Center for Internet Security (CIS), as well as those defined by NIST SP 800-171 and the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC); and finally, conclude with an accelerated review course that is specifically designed to prepare students for the CIS certification exam. Students can choose from three immersion courses.

Sans Institute will be hosting another cybersecurity training event in the GCC region, with Sans Secure Middle East 2022 to follow in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in March.
