SANS Institute announces student-company networking event

SANS Institute, a global leader in cybersecurity training and certifications, will be hosting an employer networking event for local and international cybersecurity companies at the InterContinental Regency Hotel, Bahrain on the 7th March 2023.

The evening is in preparation for the second cohort of their cyber reskilling programme, in partnership with The Labour Fund. Aiding with bridging the talent gap in the Middle East, the programme seeks to support the elevation of the Bahrain Vision 2030, in line with the Bahrain National Cyber Security Strategy.

“Bridging students the opportunity to directly engage with cybersecurity companies and potential employers not only encourages their performance during the course but also gives them valuable first-hand insight into the real world of cybersecurity,” said Ned Baltagi, Managing Director, EMEA at SANS Institute.

Organisations that are looking to recruit local talent can sign up to become employer partners and will benefit from free access and priority introductions to new cybersecurity talent from the region, whilst being encouraged to take part in job fairs, virtual sessions, opportunity sharing and more. The SANS Institute is handling a number of programmes in 2023, including Sans Dubai February.

The cyber reskilling programme is to select, educate and deploy new, highly required talent into the cybersecurity sector, with specialised in-person training from experts in the field over the course of eight weeks. It is taking place between Sunday the 30th April and Thursday the 22nd June 2023.
