This interactive online workshop taking place during two half days is meant to provide information and knowledge on Cyber Security and Security Awareness. 

The e-workshop will take place in the afternoon (CET) for the two days (approximately 8 training hours total).

The e-workshop will discover Cyber Security and Security Awareness and all participants will take part in highly interactive exercises in order to further enhance the participants’ understanding of the topic.

The aim of this two-day e-workshop is to have an introduction on cyber security and the different aspects that any individual needs to be aware as the information age is revolutionizing the possibility to gather data at the scale never imagined before and a rather stealthy mean/tool to support a strategy through tactical or operational acts. Also, participants will understand that cybersecurity is a continuous process where convenience and security are balanced.

After the e-workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the history of the Internet, cyber threats, cyber actors and cyber attacks;
  • Understand information security and how the cyberspace and geopolitics are intertwined and affect international relations;
  • Recognize critical infrastructure, malware industrial complex, social media issues;
  • Apply the best practices regarding cyber security in different situations of your daily private and professional lives.

This e-workshop will take place in the afternoon (CET) during two half days from 14-15 April 2020. The programme is devoted to educating on Cyber Security and Security Awareness, covering topics such as:

  • Current cyber threats, threats actors, cyber kill chain and attack vectors;
  • Information security and security awareness;
  • Cyberwarfare and cyber geopolitics;
  • Malware-Industrial complex and cyber arms race;
  • Critical infrastructure and digital complexification.
