AMMAN — The Jordan Design and Development Bureau (JODDB) on Sunday signed a cooperation agreement with the Association of Banks in Jordan, which aims to provide services, training and consultancy, raise awareness and enhance competencies in the field of cyber security for employees of the association’s member banks.

JODDB Director General Ayman Batran stressed keenness to partner with various local institutions in Jordan to achieve sustainable development in various sectors, cement complementary work among national institutions to serve the national development plans, and keep pace with modern developments, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

He added that the signing of the agreement came in light of the necessity to give institutions and individuals tools to protect from cyber attacks.

JODDB Director of the Cyber ​​Security Academy Bakr Abbadi said that the academy is one of the bureau’s projects, in cooperation with the British BGI company. The British BGI company offers advanced technical programmes designed to build local competencies in cyber security. 

He said that the academy qualifies employees from various sectors to raise their technical and leadership readiness to perform specialised tasks in cyber security and help Jordan protect its economy and security from cyber security threats.
