UAE-based EliteCISOs, a global cyber security community, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Israel-based Cyber Together, an Israeli NGO, in order to expand this global community to Israel.
This MoU marks the beginning of a strategic partnership aimed at strengthening cooperation in the field of cybersecurity between key professionals in both countries. Further, the MoU was signed on the sidelines of the Cyber Week 2023 Conference in Tel Aviv.
Under the terms of the MoU, EliteCISOs and Cyber Together will collaborate on various initiatives including knowledge-sharing, joint training, and workshops to enhance cybersecurity capabilities, promote the development of a highly skilled cybersecurity workforce, and address emerging threats in both the UAE and Israel.
According to the statement, “The relationship between EliteCISOs and Cyber Together was initiated and fostered by the Consulate-General of Israel in Dubai as part of its wider effort to establish new cyber-based partnerships between entities in the two countries.”
The signing event was held in the presence of Dr. Mohamed Al Kuwaiti, Head of Cybersecurity of the UAE Government, and Mr. Oded Joseph, Deputy Director General, Head of the Middle East Division in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Israel.
Mr. Joseph stated that, “Israel is fully committed to fostering collaborations and partnerships with the United Arab Emirates between the various ecosystems of innovation of our nations. This MoU, a strategic partnership between two leading cyber security stakeholders, further strengthens our relations and represents the shared benefits of the Abraham Accords beyond the relationship between governments to partnerships between organizations and people.”
