Building a community of thought leaders

The rise of cyber security threats was at an all-time high and there was a calling for continuous and greater cyber security vigilance. MENA ISC was established in 2010 to attract the best and brightest in the information security field, creating opportunities for the conference attendees to learn about cyber security’s most important issues through first-hand interactions with peers, luminaries and emerging/ established companies.

MENA ISC is designed to address the industry challenges and provide a thought leadership via global and renowned influential speakers, technical workshops, CPE credits, technology EXPO and much more to create an environment of information sharing, community building including promoting Public-Private Partnerships and more.


Developing the next generation of cyber security young leaders

Today’s youth are incredibly competent when it comes to technology. In Smart City culture, it is the youth who will carry smart technology to the next level. Our Cyber Saber Hackathon programs enables us to nurture the capabilities of the talented youth in our communities by honing their skills and serving as a development & recruitment bed for the next generation of cyber warriors.

We work on developing the next generation of cybersecurity analysts, engineers, consultants partnering with key government agencies, universities, and enterprises, participating in exciting and dynamic next generation cybersecurity hackathon challenge, which includes hundreds of attack scenarios leveraging a model smart city that indicates the impact on the real world due to a successful attack.

Skills Assessment

We are committed to developing human capital by assessing teams and individuals through world-class processes based on NIST cybersecurity framework (CSF). We monitor their scores, results and recommend a customized career path including technical workshops, cyber range, labs and professional certifications

Cyber Ranges

Immerse your team in hyper-realistic, simulated attacks on our cyber range to take their experience, skillset, and teamwork to the next level. Our cyber range simulations are the closest your team will get to a real-world incident. By training in cyber range exercises your team will excel, both technically and mentally, when the real attack takes place.

Cirriculum Development

Effective curriculum development is a core component of providing a successful education. Our program is driven to provide the best learning experience possible. We equip instructors with customized course materials built to align with the program curricula both in English and Arabic, linked to NIST NICE and other major standards and frameworks.
