Global cybersecurity solution provider Resecurity has partnered with Safety and Intelligence Network Africa (SINA) – a leading African security organisation, to advance cybersecurity skills and technology to protect the region from emerging threats.
The latest agreement reached between the two cyber firms is expected to accelerate cybersecurity knowledge and skills transfer through training, awareness and innovative cyber-intelligence solutions.
Based in Ghana, SINA is the leading organisation providing training for security and risk management professionals, government, military and law enforcement officers.
In the past year, Ghana’s digital economy has accelerated rapidly, with the country investing in international partnerships, technical security training and cybersecurity crisis response.
SINA’s mission is to help Africa prepare for this transformation by advancing students’ knowledge, skills and abilities through the creation and dissemination of safety, security and intelligence training enabled by professional staff and instructors, innovative learning programmes, and modern facilities.
According to the Chief Executive of SINA, Alexander Frimpong: “Providing public and private organisations with the tools they need to secure their cyber ecosystems is essential to not only support our country’s digitalisation but also protect our data”.
By partnering with Resecurity, he noted, “we will help organisations mitigate these risks through dynamic cybersecurity SaaS solutions and training. SINA is excited to work closely with Resecurity to help our students build their security skills and become cyber-resilient”.
The partnership aims to increase awareness of emerging security threats and challenges, accelerate the professional development of security professionals, and foster knowledge-transfer to facilitate stability and security in Africa.
Resecurity will support SINA with advanced cyber-threat intelligence and solutions for law enforcement and national security agencies through the partnership.
Resecurity’s cyber-threat intelligence solutions provide proactive alerts and comprehensive visibility of digital risks targetting an organisation’s ecosystem. The innovative platform allows administrators to reduce potential blindspots and security gaps by quickly seeing in-depth analysis and specific artifacts obtained through the dark-web, botnets activity, network intelligence and high-quality threat intelligence data.
The CEO of Resecurity, Gene Yoo said: “We are proud to partner with a leading organisation like SINA to provide best-in-class cyber-intelligence solutions and knowledge-sharing.
“This is an exciting time due to the rapid growth of Africa’s digital economy, and also a crucial time for security professionals as they prepare for the imminent cyber-threats that will come with this growth.”
Furthermore, he said, they will together ensure that Ghana’s organisations and professionals have the tools, data and skills needed to combat cyber threats.
