Middle East, September 20, 2021 – Information security and cybersecurity in the digital era is an increasingly complex topic as organizations are tasked with handling a growing volume of sensitive information. The need to maintain the integrity of data, whether it is related to businesses or the people and communities they work with, makes cybersecurity an issue of paramount importance in every industry.

Information security lies in the measures that provide full protection for data against internal and external dangers. Considering the rapid development of technology, the emergence of a growing number of electronic applications, and the presence of technology in people’s lives, it is clear that the need to protect information is crucial. Businesses and consumers are increasingly reliant upon technology that continues to transform daily work models in many vital sectors such as finance, industry, and education, and creates new ways of working in business.

In any organization, information is an important and necessary business asset that needs proper protection. Safeguarding data is especially important in increasingly interconnected business environments where information is exposed to a rising variety of threats and challenges that force organizations to adapt to change, sometimes overnight. Developing digital services ensures growth and stability in a highly competitive market. It is of vital importance for businesses to invest in creating a secure infrastructure that ensures the protection of the company and its customers.

Information leakage may stem from malicious code, hacking, or denial-of-service attacks. Security incidents are becoming more common, more ambitious, and more complex. Ensuring and controlling information security in an organization allows it to protect its information and prevent damage and loss. The battle does not end in the world of cybersecurity, where information security leaders continue their efforts to reach a wider swath of companies and stop the dangers that threaten them.

Employees who do not understand the importance of cybersecurity put their organizations at risk. Failure to properly secure information due to lack of awareness makes it easier for bad actors to breach systems and compromise data integrity. Even if employees protect information, when they do not take the appropriate precautions to secure it, they put confidential information at risk.

To increase awareness of security issues in organizations, EC-Council and Aljhood Group are collaborating to increase employee awareness and understanding of information security. Together, the two industry leaders are paving the way to protect organizations by providing education and credentialing to employees, who will receive extensive training on data protection. Considering the rapid technological development the world has witnessed in recent years and the rise of cloud-based applications, it has become imperative for employees at all levels to operate within the framework of information security. The reality is that training has become more professional across all sectors worldwide, and departments and organizations globally are working on developing systems for measuring the return on investment (ROI) in security training. Regular employee training ensures a business’s data and digital assets are safeguarded from within.

With more than 20 years of experience in business development and consultation services, Aljhood facilitates strategic and operational solutions training and helps businesses achieve success through workplace improvement, innovation, accountability, and transparency. Aljhood collaborates with businesses to implement efficient ways of working, provide training and consultation, instill best practices, and bring about growth and transformation in client organizations.

Commenting on this partnership, Mr. Marwan Issa, Group CEO of Aljhood, says, “Digital development and inclusion is an integrated economy project that must be based on a comprehensive view that prioritizes infrastructure, digital skills, and applications in vital areas. This will only be achieved by choosing well-known partners that help us to adapt to the requirements of the digital economy. We are certain that this method is the best choice to increase our success and enhance our learning experiences with our clients. In this context, we did not find anyone with the professional practice or brand that is appreciated by leaders in information security in Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, or the Sultanate of Oman, except EC-Council. Today we celebrate our partnership in the fields of training and qualification in information security, cybersecurity, network security, and business solutions. We believe that EC-Council is the ideal choice for our continued success and to enhance our learning experience with our customers.”

“Workplace improvement and cybersecurity go hand-in-hand,” says Jay Bavisi, President and CEO of the EC-Council Group. He added, “As connectivity increases, hacking methods advance. Business operations rely heavily on technology, and bad actors are always becoming savvier to avoid detection. In such a landscape, our partnership with Aljhood provides us with an opportunity to seamlessly blend the operational and strategic success of businesses with employee cybersecurity awareness. We are confident that the collaboration will yield fruitful results for firms in the Middle East.”
