EDGE Group entity, JAHEZIYA, a single-stop service provider for defence solutions and emergency response services, and the UAE Cybersecurity Council (CSC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote cooperation between the two organisations by conducting exchanges in cybersecurity-related fields, while JAHEZIYA will deliver cyber awareness programmes to designated communities.

The agreement was formalised at GITEX Global 2022, the annual enterprise technology and global digital transformation event taking place from 10-14 October at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The agreement was signed by Dr. Mohamed Hamad Al Kuwaiti, Head of Cybersecurity for the UAE Government, and Omar Al Zaabi, Senior Vice President Trading and Mission Support at EDGE.

Under the MoU, the two organisations will promote and conduct exchanges in ICT cybersecurity-related fields, with a particular focus on cooperation, deterrence, prevention and responses to cyber-attacks across relevant cyber fields, awareness-building and educational programmes, as well as scientific and technological research and development, all conducted in accordance with the UAE principles of equality, reciprocity, and respect.

JAHEZIYA is also working with the UAE CSC to deliver community cyber awareness programmes, especially for women, youth, senior citizens, and people of determination. This agreement furthers JAHEZIYA’s earlier drive to spread greater cyber awareness, which resulted in over 300,000 trainees throughout the UAE.

Speaking during the visit, Al Zaabi said, “We are proud to strengthen our country’s cyber defence awareness and threat mitigation by partnering with the UAE Cybersecurity Council. As a leading provider of emergency response services, JAHEZIYA is uniquely positioned to provide bespoke, in-depth cyber awareness programmes that ensure optimal preparation for communities operating in cyber-related fields. We look forward to utilising our distinct capabilities and meeting the perpetual demand for superior cybersecurity solutions in the UAE.”
