  • Description:


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.

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!


Part of the event is a Roundtable: Capacity building in cybersecurity: solutions – with ECSO and the 4 Pilots of the future European Cybersecurity Competence Network.
