Cybersecurity training for Bahrainis

SANS Institute, the global leader in cybersecurity training and certifications, has opened the third cohort of the Cyber Reskilling Programme in Bahrain, in partnership with the Labour Fund (Tamkeen).

The programme aims to identify, educate and reskill individuals in eight weeks, with comprehensive foundational training from the world’s leading industry experts.

Participants will undertake three SANS courses and achieve two GIAC certifications – the industry-renowned GSEC (GIAC Security Essentials) and GCIH (GIAC Certified Incident Handler).

The successful graduates will be well suited for entry-level cybersecurity roles, in security analyst teams, junior penetration testing, forensics, management and policy, as well as junior incident response.

The programme consists of three courses: SEC275: Foundations - Computers, Technology and Security, enabling students to develop fundamental skills and knowledge in key IT subject areas and speak the same language as industry professionals; SEC401: Security Essentials - Network, Endpoint, and Cloud, to provide information security skills and techniques needed to protect and secure critical IT assets, on-premises or in the cloud; and SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, and Incident Handling, to equip students with the skills to conduct thorough incident response investigations.

The programme supported by Tamkeen is exclusively for Bahraini nationals.

Those interested must apply before June 19, directly via the SANS website.
