Cybersecurity education for online safety

Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, computers, and data from attack, damage, and unauthorized access. Nowadays, educators use technology every day, however, they do not always have enough knowledge and tools available to them to protect their personal and professional data from cyber-attacks. 5 days training course will help participants to understand online security, learn to recognise possible threats, defend from cyber-attacks, respond to emergencies as well pass the knowledge them forward to their colleagues/students. The training course will focus on areas vital to modern cybersecurity – malware, password security, encryption as well as the topic of emerging issue of cyberbullying will be discussed. The course does not require any prior knowledge of computer security and is useful to anyone interested in improving the knowledge of cyber security and protection of digital information..

Note: This course is also available for groups of minimum 6 participants, for a tailor-made training at the agreed date.
