The first cohort of trainees of the Information Security program receive their HISPI certificates

Modern University for Business and Sciences (M.U.B.S.) conducted a graduation ceremony for the more than 30 trainees who terminated their Information Security program (The Holistic Information Security Practitioner (HISP) Certification course) in collaboration with HISPI (The Holistic Information Security Practitioner Institute) based in the USA.

During the program that lasted for a whole week at the M.U.B.S. in Beirut-Hamra, the trainees received valuable knowledge that help them to develop comprehensive and holistic information security awareness and, to acquire new practices in the field of security and risk management as well.

After a warm welcome from the part of M.U.B.S. to its guests (including the representative of the the Internal Security Forces’ general director, managers from Microsoft, faculty and students), the HISPI president and the American trainer, Mr. John Di Maria introduced the HISP program to the audience in addition to the best practices and techniques that help them avoid risks and take precautions against any threat in the field of Information Security.

Subsequently, Dr. Hatem Alamy (Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the M.U.B.S.), Colonel Elie Bitar (representative of the Internal Security Forces’ general director) and Mr. Di Maria distributed the HISP certificates for the trainees. Most of these trainees work for the Internal Security Forces, Banks (such as FransaBank, Al Mawarid Bank and Lebanese Canadian Bank), ALFA, financial institutions and other types of private corporations.

At the end of the ceremony, a MOU was signed between M.U.B.S. and HISPI to enhance cooperation and to organize further training activities.

The HISPI (The Holistic Information Security Practitioner Institute) based in the USA is an independent certification organization consisting of volunteers that are true information security practitioners, such as Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), Information Security Officers (ISOs), Information Security Managers, Directors of Information Security, Security Analysts, Security Engineers and Technology Risk Managers from major corporations and organizations.
