The interactive event, led by cybersecurity practitioners, aims to equip participants with the knowledge required to protect organisations against security breaches and build practical skills that can be put into immediate effect.

As a result of the surge in hybrid workforces due to COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential that organisations invest in higher security measures to be put in place to prevent business disruption via cyber threats and ensure that the steps they take are in compliance with industry standards and regulations. 

“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 programs 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 course content spans how to effectively locate, identify, and collect data from wherever it stored on cloud environments; develop and apply a framework based on actual threats to stop attacks in line 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 ultimately, conclude with an accelerated review course that is specifically designed to prepare students to successfully pass the CISSP exam. Students can partake in three immersion-style courses.

SANS Dubai February 2022 will be held between 8AM to 7PM, Gulf Standard Time. By registering for SANS Dubai February 2022, participants further benefit to connect and network with like-minded security professionals across the region, garnering insights into similar career and organisational challenges they face. In addition, the participants are eligible to enter the NetWars tournament.

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 2022.
