Information and communication technologies play an increasingly important role in our society. From online shopping and social media to online banking, travel and healthcare, we increasingly trust digital devices and the Internet. Such integration not only opens up many opportunities, but also creates certain problems for personal and public safety.
Currently, the processes of digitalization of the leading economies of the world are actively and everywhere. ICTs have become an integral part of the life of society, the state, and individuals, and the more important and acute are the tasks of effective and safe implementation of ICT tools in production, education, healthcare, social life, including the need for systematic work to form a culture of cybersecurity. In this regard, the issue of training specialists who can quickly make effective decisions to protect information and eliminate cybersecurity threats is relevant.
To solve the problems of advanced training of specialists in the field of cybersecurity, leading domestic trainers and cybersecurity experts, who have confirmed their knowledge with international certificates, will be involved in design work. Participants will also take part in the newly developed online course on OSCE Confidence-Building Measures in Cybersecurity.
It should be noted that the project participants who showed the best results during the training will be prepared for international certification in cybersecurity.
The initiators of the project expect to complete the implementation of the project in December 2021 and intend to continue working in this direction in the future.
