Over the past decades, Internet and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have had a profound impact on our daily lives, becoming an integral part of our institutional and social fabric. The supply of critical services across many sectors, including emergency and security services, health, water and food, energy and electricity, banking and finance, commerce, transportation, communications and education is now heavily reliant on ICTs. Our reliance on internet and digital technologies makes us more vulnerable to new threats, including cybersecurity attacks. These threats put the provision of critical services, as well as the EU’s economies, at risk and ultimately compromise the security and fundamental rights of EU citizens.

Breaches of information security are a major threat to the functioning of our society, jeopardizing public services, businesses and the economy. Under the EU regulatory framework (e.g. GDPR, NIS, Cybersecurity Act) our cyber security risks need to be evaluated and security controls need to be implemented in the Information Systems of our infrastructures, where all procedures, personal data, people and objects are stored and exchanged in a secure manner. To plan and implement efficient security policies and to comply with the EU regulations, public authorities, organizations and professionals need to raise their cybersecurity awareness and fully develop the necessary skills. Professionals need to be aware of the various cybersecurity standards (e.g. ISO27001, ISO 27005, ISO 28000, ISO15408) and procedures that can help them to become compliant with the EU regulations and protect their daily work, organization and sector.

This training focuses on the policy aspects of cybersecurity, covering cybersecurity standards in the EU, how to adopt them and how to put them into practice. This unique program brings together the experience of cybersecurity, security, EU policy and public administration experts to provide a practical understanding of the challenges related to designing and implementing cyber-proof policies within organizations and sectors. The training is designed specifically for non-IT professionals, with the objective of providing participants with the knowledge and skillset necessary to deal confidently with cybersecurity measures within their sectors and organizations.
