GISEC 2022: SANS to Host Capture-the-Flag

Published

on

Ned Baltagi, the Managing Director for the Middle East and Africa at SANS Institute, says the company’s theme of participation at the event will be around workforce development

Are you participating in GISEC 2022?
Yes, we are – SANS has been participating for the last 3 years now and we are looking forward to being a part of GISEC once more.

What is your theme of participation at the event?
The overall theme for our participation this year will be around workforce development and how SANS can help organizations train, recruit and retain their cybersecurity staff. We have many products to offer organizations to help them provide their staff with the best possible training experience. There are many options for organizations, small to large, to choose from to help them progress. From our core training courses to our Capture-the-Flag events (CTFs), security awareness products, knowledge assessments, NetWars tournaments, and even Cyber Training academies, we will be bringing a vast range to GISEC 2022.

What is the general agenda / planned list of activities at the event?
We would like to showcase our larger product portfolio, inform visitors that SANS is more than just our core training courses, and highlight that we offer cybersecurity training solutions for all organisations. There will also be the opportunity to participate in one of our Capture-the-Flag events, and visitors to our stand will have the ability to see and experience one of our many training courses through our Live Online training format.

What according to you are the challenges faced by CISOs and Cybersecurity experts today?
There are two main challenges at the moment. One is to ensure you are adequately protected against the latest threats coming from nation-state actors such as Russia. SANS has put together a resource center that helps you understand exactly what is happening right now and how you can protect yourself and your organisation.

The second is the ever-growing skills gap and need for talented and trained personnel. With a growing shortage of people available on the job market, it is becoming increasingly challenging for organisations to find the right talent for the right jobs. Our SANS Immersion Academies or Assessments, support organisations in finding hidden talent within the existing workforce. We also help governments set up special programs to help identify, find, and train people who are unaware that they had an inclination towards and a talent for cybersecurity.

Will you be running any offline/online engagements alongside the event?
Yes, we will host our own SANS Capture-the-Flag during the days of GISEC.
