Over the past year, I have been working the colleagues at Qatar University's KINDI Centre for Computing Research to adapt the Introduction to Cyber Security course for the Arabic-speaking world.
After an initial workshop with a variety of stakeholders across the region, we designed two versions of the course - one aimed at improving workplace cyber security awareness and the other provides a broader overview that aims to help raise awareness among the general public. Both courses will be made available in Arabic and English, the latter in recognition of the fact that there is a large cadre of expatriates in the Gulf region.
The courses are already open for registration, hosted on the Canvas platform, but will be formally launched at Qatar University today. The video above is one of the publicity trailers produced to promote this project. For more information, see the KINDI Centre for Computing Research website.
