US firm to equip Saudi cybersecurity professionals with the necessary skills

USA – Sans Institute- an American cybersecurity training provider is holding a course for Saudi Arabian industry professionals later this month.

The event, dubbed  “Sans Riyadh Cyber Leaders 2023,” is designed to equip professionals with the necessary skills to protect sensitive information, defend against cyberattacks, and mitigate risks.

It will be held at the JW Marriot Hotel in Riyadh in mid-August.

According to Ned Baltagi, Sans’ managing director for the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa, said: “With the rising frequency and sophistication of cyber threats, creating a culture of cybersecurity awareness within an organization is crucial. In the event of a cybersecurity breach, leaders must be able to respond quickly and effectively to minimize damage and ensure business continuity.

“Training is essential for developing competent leaders who can protect organizations from cyber threats, manage risks, and align security efforts with business objectives. Understanding risk is vital for making informed decisions on resource allocation and prioritizing security initiatives.

“Moreover, cybersecurity leaders must align security initiatives with broader business objectives and learn how to make decisions that contribute to the overall success of the organization.”

The program will comprise two modules led by industry experts.

The first, “MGT512: Security Leadership Essentials for Managers,” will teach participants how to effectively communicate complex technical concepts to technical and non-technical stakeholders, collaborate with various departments, and appropriately plan and manage security projects and initiatives.

The second, “MGT514: Security Strategic Planning, Policy, and Leadership,” will help leaders understand the tools and skills needed to bridge the gap between security staff and senior leadership by strategically planning how to build and run effective security programs.

The Saudi government, in cooperation with private organizations, has been investing in cybersecurity infrastructure, raising awareness about cyber threats, and implementing policies and regulations to strengthen cybersecurity capabilities in the country.
