PGI is delighted that after a year of development—working alongside the KADDB team—cyber security trainers from KADDB’s Cyber Security Academy (KCSA) delivered the first day of its new technical cyber security skills training programme.

The programme will be taught at KCSA’s training facility in Amman to staff from Jordanian government and banking organisations in five-day modules from September until December.

Abdallah al Masri, Head of IT Projects at KADDB, says that the programme will enable staff to respond to cyber security threats.  

“The programme contains five UK government certified technical training courses from KADDB’s partner company PGI. This practical training is taught by KADDB trainers in English and Arabic and provide staff with the knowledge and skills required to secure and test information systems and networks and to investigate and respond to cyber security attacks and incidents,” Mr al Masri said.

PGI’s Chief Corporate Development Officer, Sebastian Madden, PGI’s General Manager for the Levant Region, Wafa’ Nimri, and PGI’s Head of Information Assurance Training, Steve Mair, represented PGI at the opening of the training.

Mr Sebastian Madden is pleased to see the last year of work come to fruition.

“PGI has been working with KADDB for over a year to build the training centre and infrastructure, and to train and certify KADDB’s trainers to PGI’s standards,” Mr Madden said.

“The KADDB Cyber Academy will help Jordan protect its economy and security from cyber security threat. So KCSA is also an asset for the whole Middle East region, which has an acute shortage of cyber security skills, and desperately needs high quality training from expert Arabic-speaking trainers like KADDB’s team,” he said.
