Establishing a World Class Cyber Security Center
Our vision is to establish a world class cyber security center by partnering with key local universities, industry and government agencies in order to facilitate cyber security research, education and practice in the UAE and more generally in the GCC region. The center will act as a catalyst to improve cyber security in the UAE and enhance its regional and global competitiveness in this field.
The Center for Cyber Security is affiliated with CCS New York.
The Center for Cyber Security hosts events throughout the year to increase cyber security awareness.
