The AFCEA Jordan chapter hosted its first annual cyber security conference ‘Secure the Future through Cyber Protection’ on 11-13 December.

PGI sponsored the conference alongside BAE Systems, Zain and Umniah. It showcased its unrivalled expertise in developing and delivering cyber security training programmes across the Middle East, as well as building its international partners’ capability.

Sebastian Madden, PGI’s Chief Corporate Development Officer, presented a methodology for developing Jordan’s national cyber security capability through training.

In 2017, PGI has designed and delivered training programmes for seven Middle East government and financial services clients. It has also trained trainers for, and transferred capability to, Jordanian training company PST and the cyber security training centre at AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow.

Sebastian Madden is a former UK senior civil servant who has been working on national cyber security issues for 21 years. He has led PGI’s international cyber capability building projects for the last four years. His projects include national cyber security strategies, training and development programs, peer to peer learning networks and cyber security exercises for government, law enforcement and corporate clients in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

AFCEA was established in 1946 as the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association. It is a non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence, and global security. AFCEA links professionals in Command and Control, Electronics, Communication and Intelligence, across more than nineteen countries on four continents. It covers the defence, homeland security intelligence and civilian government areas, providing a forum to support customers and suppliers alike.
