Mission to diversify Omani economy and create jobs underway with Cyber Oman 

Plexal, in partnership with the UK Oman Digital Hub, digital risk management consultancy PGI and innovation development company ALJABR, have welcomed a new cohort of SMEs to the Cyber Oman project. 
Our mission is to create a cyber secure ecosystem of SMEs and upskilling the Omani workforce in cyber security, all of which is important to create career opportunities, while diversifying and enhancing the country’s economy. 
In addition to SMEs who will join us, we’re excited to welcome engagement from our ecosystem of alumni who have previously gone through our programme, alongside entrepreneurs, industry, government, academia and investors, all of whom are ready and willing to share their experiences along the way. 
Over the course of the programme, Cyber Oman is designed to: 

  • Help leaders and organisations to build connections and grow their network through questions, prompts, chats and events. 
  • Share experiences and advice to help one another with careers, entrepreneurship and managing cyber challenges. 
  • Harness the strength of a community by working towards a common goal. 

Plexal is leading the Cyber Oman: Economy programme to enable a cyber secure Omani ecosystem and accelerate the growth of Omani startups. We’ve delivered Innovate Oman, the Rapid Innovation (RAIN) accelerator, the Omantel Innovation Labs inception, and a series of supporting projects to stimulate and enable the Omani SME ecosystem. 
PGI is leading the Cyber Oman: Skills programme to enable a cyber resilient Omani workforce.  The company designed the Cyber Resilience Omani Workforce Framework (CyROW), the Oman cyber academy, and delivered technical cyber security training programmes in Oman. 
Finally, AL JABR is leading the Cyber Oman Community portal, creating a space for cyber industry, government and startups to connect and network. We previously worked with the team on Innovate Oman and the Rapid Innovation (RAIN) accelerator. 
We’re pleased to get started and look forward to furthering our presence in this exciting ecosystem!
