eShore Ltd inspires the next generation of Information Security leaders
August 2016 by Marc Jacob
Cayman-based eShore Ltd has helped inspire 15 IT security professionals to obtain the industry accredited Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification in a 5-day, on-island bootcamp with instructor Jay Ranade.
IT security professionals from leading organisations including Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA), Fidelity Bank and XSOMO International joined the 1-to-1 interactive and web-based session.
With IT security, cyber threats, and new CIMA guidelines on everyone’s mind, eShore Ltd offered the opportunity to leading Caribbean businesses who are looking to strengthen their information security program and protect their data from increasingly sophisticated attacks.
Polly Pickering, Managing Director at eShore Ltd, said: “It was good to see so many IT security professionals taking advantage of the opportunity. Jay teaches security, risk, and audit classes globally and has written and published more than 35 IT related books, so our attendees couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. It was a great week had by all!”
“Cyber attacks on business email and data breaches continue to rise at an unprecedented rate. This is our way of giving something back to the community to ensure that regional businesses not only recognise the increasing threats, but have access to the gold standard in security certification. While eShore Ltd can offer state-of-the-art teams and technology, it is awareness and training - coupled with executive buy-in - that really makes the difference,” Polly continues.
Due to the success of the event, eShore Ltd will be running another CISSP bootcamp with instructor Jay Ranade on the week commencing 5th December.
