SANS Institute to hold immersion-style cybersecurity training in Dubai

GT 2020 02 02SANS Institute, a cybersecurity training provider, has announced SANS Dubai February 2020, which will be held from 15-20 February at the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Beach

Through hands-on, immersion-style training, global cybersecurity experts will train and enable participants with skills to defend their organisation against security breaches and prevent future attacks.

Ned Baltagi, managing director, Middle East and Africa at SANS Institute, said, “The rapid pace at which cybersecurity attacks are evolving and increasing is making it even more difficult for organisations to prevent and defend against them. They need to have an effective method in place to detect, thwart, and monitor internal and external threats to prevent security breaches.

“According to reports, the cybersecurity skills gap is widening with a shortfall of 1.8m cybersecurity workers globally by 2022 and the situation in the Middle East is no better. Through our courses, we hope to address the region’s skills gap by training and enabling more professionals to defend their organisations against future security breaches and attacks.”

At SANS Dubai February 2020, cybersecurity experts, Brandon McCrillis and Greg Porter will conduct the two courses - the SEC566: Implementing and Auditing the Critical Security Controls - In-Depth and the SEC660: Advanced Penetration Testing, Exploit Writing, and Ethical Hacking respectively.

In 2020, SANS Institute will be holding a number of cybersecurity training events across the GCC region with SANS Jeddah being next in March 2020.
