eHosting DataFort is teaming up with Synergy Professional Services (SPS) to deliver ethical hacking courses and workshops in both the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Under the terms of the agreement, eHosting DataFort will supply the content and instructors, while Synergy will provide the facilities and marketing know how.

“As new tools are being developed and new vulnerabilities discovered day by day, the threats to information security from hackers are rising. To be prepared to deal with challenges, security professionals need to constantly update their knowledge,” says Sameer Sadeh, CEO of eHosting DataFort.

“We have developed the ethical hacking courses to address all the latest techniques and trends in the network security field so that IT professionals can take appropriate countermeasures against security attacks,” he continues.

The five day courses will detail and examine the various tools, techniques and methodologies that hackers use to carry out attacks, as well as outlining the potential damage that can be caused by such security breaches. Furthermore, participants will be provided with an insight into social engineering executed by hacker. For example, the courses will illustrate the different ways in which hackers operate and how they can infiltrate organisations.

Initially two courses have been planned with the first beginning in Dubai on 31st August and the second starting in Riyadh on 6th September. However, if these workshops prove successful further courses may follow in the subsequent months.

“We have not planned additional courses… it depends on the success of these two courses but [may] plan additional courses in October and November. We are looking at a long term relationship with SPS and we are confident that the courses will be a success,” says Amer Attar, senior marketing manager, eHosting DataFort.

“We are keen to partner with leading security organisation in the region like eHosting DataFort to address the growing need for quality security courses,” says Melad Ghabrial, president & CEO, Synergy Professional Services.

“The partnership with eHosting DataFort enables us to help companies keep pace with security developments that are vital for the long term development of the IT sector in the region,” he adds.
