Jordan’s National Center for Cyber Security (NCSC) sealed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland to enhance the cyber security collaboration between both countries’ institutions.
The MoU, according to a statement released by the NCSC on Wednesday, stems from both nations’ shared desire to preserve the growing economic, social, and security benefits associated with using a free, open, peaceful, and safe cyberspace. Additionally, both nations want to increase public awareness of the threats posed by cybercrime and its malicious activities.
“The Memorandum is in line with the national strategy for cybersecurity and serves the NCSC’s efforts to achieve a safe and reliable Jordanian cyberspace that enables growth and prosperity,” the statement added.
NCSC Director, Bassam Al-Maharmeh, and British Ambassador to Jordan, Bridget Brind, signed the MoU.
