Saudi Arabian students are to learn about cyber warfare from the people who experienced it first hand, state news agency SPA reported.

Former members of the US Department of Defense will be working with the Prince Mohammed bin Salman College of Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Technologies in teaching various aspects of cyber warfare.

The announcement follows the signing of an agreement between the college and IronNet Cybersecurity.

College Dean, Dr Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Dahlawi, who signed on behalf of the advisor at the Royal Court, Saud bin Abdullah Al-Qahtani, said the agreement meant the college was the first in the region to teach cyber warfare at a high level.

And he said the students would be learning from the real life experiences of people who had previously held senior positions in the Cyber Command of the US Department of Defense.
