"Dubai Cyber Innovation Park and the training programmes it offers play a critical role towards promoting knowledge and building expertise among new employees and fresh graduates in the field of cybersecurity. This bootcamp provides an opportunity for the trainees to develop their cyber capabilities and skills, and we look forward to enabling and empowering them to assume leading positions in this field in both the public and private sectors."

The bootcamp will cover several key topics, from introducing the participants to cyber and network security processes, to evaluating common vulnerabilities in web applications that may lead to cyberattacks.

The programme also outlines ways for trainees to gain a clearer view of security challenges in cloud environments and understand the requirements for securing them.

Participants learn to write programming languages that adhere to cybersecurity best practices, and explore various tactics to respond to cyberattacks. The course provides a thorough explanation of encryption processes and methods and their importance in cybersecurity, along with the best procedures for generating reports for different levels of management.
