The National Cyber Security Agency (NCSA), represented by the National Cyber Excellence Department, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) on Thursday concluded an eight-day training course with the participation of 685 employees from school leaders.
The training course was held within the framework of prevention of cybercrime. It aimed to raise the cyber security capabilities at a national level in preparation for FIFA World Cup 2022.
Dalal Al Aqeedi, Cyber Excellence Department manager at the National Cyber Security Agency, said, “This training course, which started on Wednesday September 7 and ran until September 15, was addressed to non-technical employees in different entities across the country. The number of participants in this mandatory course was about 685 employees from school leaders.”
She also stressed the agency’s effort to enhance the national capabilities for non-technical employees.
She also pointed out that technology alone cannot guarantee a completely safe environment.
“There is always a human error factor whether from technical or non-technical users, thus comes the need to empower this category of users and equip them with the required knowledge, training and publications,” she said.
The training programme was launched after testing the cyber capabilities and maturity level of national entities to combat cyberattacks.
