SANS Institute has confirmed that it is the Official Training Partner for the Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference (GISEC), currently underway at the Dubai World Trade Centre. This year, GISEC is being held from May 31 to June 2, 2021 and has emerged as the Arab world’s largest and most impactful cybersecurity event and SANS Institute is bringing several new products likes Cyber Ranges, SANS Foundations and CyberStart to the event, and also displaying its latest range of training courses and certifications that promote cyber-resilience and empower organisations to deal with security challenges in the post-pandemic new normal.

“The pandemic has forced organisations to accelerate their Digital Transformation initiatives, which has put them at risk in new and unprecedented ways. Cybersecurity is now front and centre of these initiatives. However, the gap for cybersecurity jobs is widening and organisations need to act now to equip and train their staff with skills to deliver best-in-class defence. At GISEC 2021, we are highlighting this message and demonstrating how our programmes can help organisations arm themselves against potential cyberattacks and narrow the cybersecurity skills gap,” said Ned Baltagi, Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, SANS Institute.

SANS Institute has been working with government and commercial organisations in the region, helping upskill security professionals and introduce new talent into the cybersecurity industry. Visitors to GISEC 2021 can drop by at Booth C14 to interact with experts from SANS Institute.
