Effective Training in Cybersecurity

in the new era of staff remotisation: Practical solutions, tools & opportunities

25-03-2021 | 09:00 - 16:30 CET


#CYBERWISER2021

ABOUT

CYBERWISER.eu

The need for effective cybersecurity training is more pressing than ever. With COVID-19 restrictions bringing about the increasing shift to home working, companies are now offering many more vulnerable points to malicious hackers. According to the IBM Data Breach Report, the average cost of a data breach in 2020 was 3.86 million dollars and the average time to identify and contain it was 280 days. The shift to remote work has created a more complex security landscape that will require significant focus and resources moving forward. Training is crucial to help organisations and teams to become cyber-aware with regards to best practices including password strength, phishing emails (which have exploded in number since the start of the pandemic) and other types of cyber-attacks.

Is there a cost to participate?

No. The event is free of charge and is part of the CYBERWISER.eu dissemination programme, sponsored by the European Commission.

Why you

should attend

What's in it for me?

  • I know I have a problem with competencies in cybersecurity! What are my options?
  • I depend on ICT for my business: How do I train my staff in cybersecurity if I have a limited budget?
  • Staff working from remote will increase cyber risks: How do we step up our cybersecurity skills?

This workshop is specifically for all those who are pondering these questions!

        Organisation and key takeaways

  • The first part of the event will gather experts from all across Europe setting the scene on the state of the art in cybersecurity training, presenting existing solutions and opportunities to increase capacity building, evaluating best practices based on the emerging needs of SMEs and other organisations. Two panel discussions will be looking at how Europe is tackling the cybersecurity-skills gap based on the progress of the future European Cybersecurity Competence Network as well as practical tools and services to address it quickly and comprehensively.
  • In the practical training sessions on CYBERWISER.eu platform, you will have the opportunity to participate in a more detailed demonstration of the CYBERWISER.eu training platform and get in direct contact with a CYBERWISER.eu Tutor that will be interacting with you, in order to create a specific training path customised on the needs of your organisation. We will define together the technical characteristics of your training path and you will be able to start using the CYBERWISER.eu platform right away and free of charge!
