The British University in Dubai (BUiD) signed an MoU with SecureLink to bring in world-class cybersecurity training to the Middle East. Through this partnership, BUiD will be offering different types of cybersecurity certifications enabling candidates to enhance their cybersecurity skills across multiple spheres as well as provide enterprises with professionals with the right skills.

These certifications will be offered by BUiD in collaboration with Phase 2 Advantage and SecureLink:


  • Certified Cyber Incident Response Manager (C-CIRM)

  • Certified Disaster Response and Recovery Manager (C-DRRM)
  • Certified Network Forensic Analysis Manager (C-NFAM)

Mahmoud Nimer, President, StarLink Group commented that, “Lack of skilled cybersecurity professional puts an organization at high risk. Most organizations opt for ‘on-the-job’ cybersecurity work experience which may not be sufficient to keep up with the evolving and complex nature of cyber threats.  Our association with BUiD is aimed at building a new breed of highly skilled cybersecurity workforce to enable organizations become cyber-resilient.”


BUiD’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Abdullah Alshamsi, said, “BUiD is a research-based university, designed to contribute to the technological innovation and socio-economic development of the Arab world and beyond.
