Since its inception, Pipeline has been keen on the diplomatic friendship between Bangladesh and Japan. On her diplomatic visit in Tokyo, H.E Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, out of the 12 MoU signed between Japan and Bangladesh, Pipeline, Japan and EVCT, Bangladesh signed an MoU to set up a Cyber Security Center of Excellence, CCoE, in Bangladesh. The signing and understanding were held in a ceremony held in Japan in the presence of Bangladesh's Prime Minister H.E. Sheikh Hasina and Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

The Cybersecurity Center of Excellence is set to provide Security Operations Center (SOC) services and hands-on cybersecurity training for students and professionals in Bangladesh. The center will also feature a cyber range for practical exercises and simulations, which will enhance real-life-risk mitigation drill and exercise to combat the real-world scenarios. The agenda also features training in Japanese for natives and Bangladeshis and covers curriculum to learn Japanese culture and language, to bolster efficiency as resources in Japan.

The CCoE will offer a comprehensive curriculum, which includes expert facility and faculty for training in the latest cyber defense techniques. The Cyber Defense Conference '23, which was organized jointly by Pipeline Inc. and EV Cyber Team last January, is a testament to the partnership's commitment to advancing the cybersecurity landscape in Bangladesh. The conference was the first of its kind in the country and received an overwhelming response from industry leaders and professionals.

The partnership between Pipeline Inc. and EV Cyber Team highlights their shared vision to develop a robust cybersecurity infrastructure in Bangladesh. Pipeline Inc. brings its extensive experience in cybersecurity solutions and Japanese language training, while EV Cyber Team has a deep understanding of the local market and the security challenges faced by businesses in Bangladesh.

"We are excited to partner with EV Cyber Team to establish the Cybersecurity Center of Excellence in Dhaka," said Allan Watanabe, CEO Pipeline Inc. "Our goal is to equip the next generation of cybersecurity professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to protect businesses and critical infrastructure from cyber threats."

The Cybersecurity Center of Excellence is set to become a flagship institution for cybersecurity training in Bangladesh and the region. The center's establishment is going to be a significant milestone in the development of Bangladesh's cybersecurity infrastructure, which will help the country to become a regional leader in cybersecurity.
