Regional VAD StarLink has announced its partnership with cybersecurity credentialing body, EC-Council, to offer cybersecurity training and credentials across the META region.
StarLink has signed up with EC-Council to deliver industry-recognized cybersecurity programs, including their flagship program, Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH), and their C-level training, Certified Chief Information Security Officer (C|CISO), as well EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA), EC-Council Disaster Recovery Professional (E|DRP), Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (C|HFI), and Certified Blockchain Professional (CBP).
The partnership of StarLink and EC-Council will contribute in the fight against increasing cyber-attacks by providing the required human talent.
“We are targeting to reach top customers across all industries, including enterprise, BFSI, oil and gas, and government and ministries. Through this partnership with EC-Council, we are positive that participants will have the opportunity to witness hands-on scenarios with real tools in an isolated training environment” said Anuj Jain, Director of Services of StarLink.
StarLink aims to expand and offer cybersecurity training programs to their partners and customers across the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) regions through EC-Council. The training will initially be offered in UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi, Turkey, Egypt, and the Levant, and later will be expanded to Africa and other mature markets.
“The need for skilled cybersecurity professionals is a critical requirement and we will work together to fill that gap in META through our partnership with StarLink. As a high-quality provider in the growing security domain, StarLink’s collaboration with EC-Council will see them serve new markets quickly”, said Sean Lim, COO of EC-Council
