Organisations are facing a global shortage of cyber security skills in the workplace with the skills gap in Europe doubling over the past year according to (ISC)², a renowned cyber security professional body. This will have the impact on organisations becoming more desirable targets for hacking, unless they improve their defense capabilities.

According to the ‘ENISA Threat landscape report’, hackers have further advanced their motives and tactics. “We are witnessing the development and deployment of new technologies, which are reshaping the cyber landscape and significantly impacting society and national security.” Executive Director of the EU’s cybersecurity agency, Udo Helmbrecht said. It is therefore crucial to have a customisable training program that informs you on strengths and weakness within your company system and infrastructure.

According to a report by the European Court of Auditors on ‘The challenges to effective EU cybersecurity policy’, cybersecurity training is developing further with new training activities and innovative real life scenario exercises taking place and increasing in volume across the EU.

Addressing all of the above, CYBERWISER.eu implements customisable training programs in cybersecurity to fit any range of needs and learning targets. In fact, CYBERWISER.eu delivers a flexible, risk-centred, learning platform that combines a theoretical and practical approach to cybersecurity with innovative features, including a cutting-edge cyber range.

A customisable approach to capacity building in cybersecurity as the one proposed by CYBERWISER.eu is effective as it teaches your people how to secure your own company’s IT infrastructure and services, also owing to the innovations brought by the real-time cyber range platform, which is a virtual environment that allows realistic simulations to be carried out.
