Mohamad Mahjoub

Cyber Security Expert

Hi! I’m Mohamad; you might call me a bit of a computer geek; just a bit.

After spending 5 years working as an IT Project Manager for a leading multinational pharmaceutical company, I moved to the Banking sector to attain a senior role in the Information Security Audit field for 4 years; it was such a great experience. I have then relocated to Dubai to join a Dubai Smart Government entity for 3 years as an Information Security Manager. Currently I’m working as an Information Security Consultant for different companies in Dubai, Oman, and Bahrain. I have a total of 15 years of experience in the Information Technology field, with a focus on Information Security.

Since 2012, I have delivered many IT courses and topics to technical and non-technical audience, varying from fresh graduates, IT professionals, senior and executive management, and business owners. In a world of ubiquitous technology, I believe that Information Security is more important than ever, and it is something that everyone should be aware of, therefore it should not only be exclusive to the privileged few. I’m passionate about making this happen through spreading my knowledge to people like you. I’m a certified CISSP, CISA, PMP, ITIL, and ISO 27005 Risk Manager and I have a Masters in Computer Science from the Lebanese American University (LAU).

I hope you will enjoy my course.
