The cybersecurity training and certification provider will be showcasing its more than 60 immersion-style training courses aimed at private and public-sector security professionals.

Ned Baltagi, managing director in the Middle East at SANS Institute, said, “In the next few years, approximately 24 billion internet-connected devices will be installed worldwide. This means that, with the gap for cybersecurity jobs set to run into several million, according to reports, we are putting ourselves at risk in new and unprecedented ways.”

“We are returning to GISEC 2019 to personally deliver this message to our stakeholders and demonstrate how they can plug the security skills gap in their organisations,” he added.

At GISEC 2019, SANS Institute will showcase its training courses, providing intensive immersion training designed to help security professionals master the practical steps needed to defend systems and networks against the most dangerous threats–those that are being actively exploited.

“SANS courses equip practitioners with the latest techniques and knowledge that they can put to work immediately upon their return to the office. Organisations must act now to both arm their frontline staff and equip their security professionals with the skills to deliver best-in-class defence,” he noted.

“Training now plays a critical role in defending against cybercrime within organisations from every sector. Awareness of how to proactively prevent the latest threats is critical to keep Middle East organisations and individuals safe. As such, we feel it is important to be part of GISEC, the key cyber security event in the Middle East,” he concluded.

SANS Institute will also share its 2019 calendar of training events in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Egypt, and Kuwait at the event.
