InfoSec Skills Launches Strategic Partnership with Wisdom Education Group in the Middle East

Sep 4 2013, 7:22am CDT | by PR.com

InfoSec Skills has announced a new strategic partnership with the Wisdom Education Group, based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to deliver accredited Information Security training into the region. This is the first initiative of its kind and one that will bring much needed skills to business throughout the Middle East.

London, United Kingdom, September 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- InfoSec Skills (www.infosecskills.com) has announced a new strategic partnership with the Wisdom Education Group, based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Wisdom Education is a leading Group of Institutions in UAE having branches in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Oman. It is approved by Ministry of Education of UAE and Oman, with permission to impart training for different educational programs including IT and management development programs.

Terry Neal, Chief Executive Office of InfoSec Skills, commented on the signing of this new strategic partnership, “We are thrilled to be expanding our client portfolio to include partners in the Middle East and Asia Pacific. Working with industry leaders in local markets, such as Wisdom Education Group, allows us to deliver our world-class training to markets that are currently out of our reach. This is a win-win situation for both companies, with InfoSec Skills backing local experts to deliver accredited training, without them having to go through the arduous process of BCS accreditation.”

John Hughes, Head of Faculty and Courses for InfoSec Skills, commented, “I am so excited that InfoSec Skills can now reach beyond the just UK and US markets into new territories. By using local ATOs (accredited training organisations) in this way, it allows us to help the BCS meet its own strategic objectives in gaining international recognition for their suite of information security certifications. We are already really proud of our accredited courses and authors and now we can be really proud of our ATO delivery partners in all corners of the world. The partnership with Wisdom expands our customer base into UAE, Oman and other neighbouring GCC countries where the demand for information security training and certification is massive.”

The Middle East Information Security market is rapidly expanding and as it does there is a distinct shift away from an ad-hoc approach to a professional security management and governance approach. This is demonstrated effectively through the shift in the market towards training and certification for these professional security job roles. Pady Naidu, Vice President – IT & International Operations, Wisdom Education Group in UAE, commented on the InfoSec Skills strategic partnership as follows: “It gives us immense pleasure having Wisdom Education Group becoming an Accredited Training Provider for these British Computer Society (BCS) professional information security qualifications. This is a significant new feather in our hat and one that we are extremely excited and proud to display. On this occasion, we would like to thank Terry Neal, CEO of InfoSec Skills, for the support he has provided us regarding accredited trainers, courseware and e-Learning materials. UAE is one of the fastest growing countries in the IT Infrastructure and Security marketplace and Information Security Governance is always a challenge for companies operating in this region. This is why we chose to launch this exciting new training offering in accredited Information Security (IS) training courses based on the BCS syllabi. As InfoSec Skills’ strategic partners for the region, we will be marketing and delivering the entire portfolio of IT Governance and Information Security Professional Certification courses that lead to BCS and Professional Qualifications.”
