The UAE Cybersecurity Council and JAHEZIYA, an EDGE Group entity, will continue to strengthen UAE cyber security awareness and response initiatives
EDGE Group entity, JAHEZIYA, a single-stop service provider for defence solutions and emergency response services, and the UAE Cybersecurity Council (CSC) today announced the renewal of their partnership to develop and implement best practices for cyber security awareness, as well as increase knowledge regarding the importance of online safety.
In conjunction with JAHEZIYA, the CSC intends to raise baseline online safety awareness through nationwide initiatives and campaigns, increase risk awareness related to using technology, and demonstrate how to use technology in a secure, productive way.
H.E. Dr. Mohamed Al Kuwaiti, Head of the CSC – UAE Government, said: “Partnering with EDGE and JAHEZIYA will provide consistent, quality risk prevention and cybersecurity best practice initiatives to communities across the UAE. In line with our goals, we are continuing to unite efforts and capabilities that result in the development and dissemination of the latest cyber awareness programmes, enabling confidence while fortifying response readiness.”
Talal Al Hashmi, JAHEZIYA CEO, said: “We are honoured to partner with the CSC on the Cyber Pulse Project, an initiative designed to raise public awareness of cybersecurity concepts, the impact of common threats, and the importance of developing cyber literacy and resilience. The programme is a critical step forward in the fight against cybercrime, ensuring individuals and organisations are equipped to protect their data and systems. As a leading provider of cybersecurity awareness training in the UAE, we impart necessary knowledge which families and leadership teams use to safeguard themselves against cyber threats.”
Established in 2020 by the UAE Cabinet, the CSC aims to develop a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy while establishing a robust infrastructure that protects UAE cyberspace.
