Raytheon highlights cyber security best practices to students from Khalifa University

Posted 24 April 2017 · Add Comment

Carl Manion, director of Cyber Threat Hunting, Detection and Response at Raytheon, has delivered a lecture to more than 27 students from Khalifa University of Science and Technology's Department of Computer Engineering recently.

The guest lecture was part of a series of activities under Raytheon’s ‘Cyber Academy’, which debuted globally in the UAE in 2016.

“When it comes to cybersecurity, skilled individuals are your greatest asset, and developing local cyber capacity is key for effective and long term cyber defense”, said Manion. “Technology alone is not enough to defend against the highly advanced, well-resourced groups and individuals behind many of today’s cyber threats. It takes talented cyber threat analysts, security engineers and malware researchers who can think like your organisation's adversaries, understand the tools, techniques and practices they use and develop the necessary counter measures.”

The thought leadership engagement is part of Raytheon’s ongoing commitment to developing cyber capacity and an effective talent pipeline in Emirati youth, in efforts to contribute to the country’s continually growing knowledge-based economy and STEM platform. It also coincides with Raytheon’s 30th anniversary of partnership with the UAE, which was marked this year.
