1st CYBERWISER.eu Open Pilots Workshop

Tuesday, 5 November, 2019




Your chance to train your staff, for free

Prepare your company to face cybersecurity threats and attacks

Pisa, 5th November 2019 – Domus Comeliana

Cybersecurity has become a major priority for organisations looking to protect themselves against cyberattacks. And in the face of rising concerns about risks to information security, companies and organisations around Europe are desperate for cybersecurity talent. Because without trained security professionals, organisations lack the capability to develop specific security processes to detect and prevent cyberattacks.

Content of the workshop

The workshop will showcase CYBERWISER.eu, an integrated online platform where organisations can train their staff in a simulated environment of cyber incidents and attacks, allowing both IT professionals and non-technical staff to hone and evolve their skills, continuously evaluating their performance as they prepare for future real attack episodes.

The workshop will also introduce the recently launched cybersecurity Competence Centre Pilot Projects. These projects will develop a wide range of tools and services to support the cybersecurity needs of SMEs across Europe.

Who should attend?

The workshop is for organisations, especially but not limited to SMEs, seeking a qualified entry point to cybersecurity training and advisory services.
Given that cybersecurity is not just an IT issue, the workshop will cater for both IT specialists and a wider audience including employees from all departments and at all levels of seniority.
