16 Mar SANS Institute to highlight interactive cybersecurity training and workforce development at GISEC 2022
SANS Institute, the global leader in cybersecurity training and certifications, has announced its participation at GISEC 2022, to be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre, from March 21 to 23. At GISEC, SANS will showcase a vast range of their offerings, from core training courses, Capture-the-Flag events (CTFs), security awareness products, knowledge assessments, NetWars tournaments and Cyber Training academies, to educate visitors on how SANS can support organisations in training, recruiting, and retaining cybersecurity staff.
“There is an ever-growing cybersecurity skills gap and need for trained personnel within organisations. With a growing shortage of people available on the job market, it is becoming increasingly challenging for organisations to find the right talent for the right jobs,” said Ned Baltagi, Managing Director, Middle East and Africa at SANS Institute.
“We have many products to offer organisations – small and large – to help them provide their staff with the best possible training experience. As the largest and most anticipated cybersecurity exhibition in the Arab region, GISEC is the best platform to spotlight our larger product portfolio and inform professionals that SANS’ proficiencies expand beyond our training courses,” Baltagi added.
During GISEC, SANS will offer visitors the opportunity to experience the SANS Secure Middle East 2022 training course, which will take place in Riyadh this month, through its Live Online training format.
At stand D21-24, senior executives and cybersecurity experts from SANS Institute will be available to network and share insights on how SANS is working to bridge the current cybersecurity skills gap, as well as how individuals and organisations can adequately protect themselves against the latest cyber threats coming in from nation-state actors. Attendees can also participate in one of the Capture-the-Flag events hosted by SANS.
