The three-level security training program, which targets employees from government entities, IT specialists, Emirati talent and fresh graduates, offers an educational platform to raise awareness on topics related to cyber security including cyber forensics, malware analysis, and reverse engineering.
Ibrahim Mohamed Lari, CEO, Injazat, said: "Cyber security challenges have been at an all-time high in recent months, affecting businesses and organizations globally. As such, our partnership with Kaspersky Lab will equip both students and IT professionals with the skills they need to effectively combat cyber security threats. Through this educational program, Injazat is actively contributing to the efforts of the government in safeguarding the nation's infrastructure and maintaining the UAE's electronic security."
Injazat and Kaspersky Lab specifically developed the program to support businesses as they promote the role of cyber security in their operations, which is key to protecting the infrastructure and intellectual property of government entities and the private sector. The first level of the program is a two day course that introduces cyber security fundamentals, different types of attacks and gives a comprehensive picture of the threat landscape. The second level consists of two courses, discussing malware analysis and reverse engineering. The third and final level, similarly broken down into two courses, covers advanced malware analysis and reverse engineering. Upon successful completion of the broad curriculum, certification is given to attendees.
Ovanes Mikhailov, managing director, Kaspersky Lab Middle East, said: "By partnering with Injazat to develop this program, we are helping to advance the cyber security landscape in the UAE. With persistent threats, it is necessary to acquire the skills to manage them. Upon the completion of each level's exam, the students will receive an official certification deeming them experts in the field."
