The Saudi Cyber Security and Internet Programming Association (SFCSP) has entered a new partnership with Jordan-based leading cybersecurity firm VirtuPort.
The terms of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two parties include VirtuPort developing a new framework for allowing Saudi trainees access to a vast pool of digital resources including online training materials, software licenses, specific products, as well as tools and other resources for academic use.
When fully implemented, this new initiative will facilitate an ideal training environment for local talents in the field of information technology.
Additionally, the MoU also makes it mandatory for VirtuPort to partake in various SFCSP activities, including workshops, conferences, cybersecurity awareness programs, hackathons, and other competitions.
The MoU was signed by vice chairman of the Federation Dr. Abdullah bin Sharaf Al Ghamdi on behalf of the Advisor to the Royal Court, chairman of SFCP Saud bin Abdullah Al Qahtani, and Samer Omar, CEO of VirtuPort.
For the uninitiated, SFCSP is a national organization and an integral part of the Saudi Olympic Committee. The organization has recently focused on helping Saudi youths to boost their financial and professional capabilities in the areas of software development and cybersecurity by best industry practices.
