Key Takeaways on Cyber Training from Csaba Virag, Cyber Services Ltd and CYBERWISER.eu Stakeholder Expert
A key challenge for many organisations is securing and defending their IT infrastructures with 100s or even 1000s of integration points as potential vulnerabilities.
Related to this, is the lack of capabilities to protect IT assets under pressure as cyber-attacks escalate.
Customisation is the base layer every organisation needs to deal with cyber threats and ensure the security and safety of their infrastructure. It is key to helping organisations understand which additional skills they need.
Europe is missing 3.2 million professionals, which further exacerabates the cybersecurity challenge. However, we need the right combination of professionals, from cyber threat analysts to ethical hackers and so on.
Management needs to play a key role in the organisation's cybersecurity and ensure a company-wide approach, ensuring there are no weak links.
Cyber range and training is a very fragmented domain, making it hard for newcomers to understand how they can benefit from the various offers in the marketplace.
CYBERWISER.eu aims to reduce this fragmentation. Key benefits are already emerging from its Full Scale Pilots. For example, the University of Pisa is using the platform to train its bachelor, master's and post-master students. They are confirming the value of filling the skills gap by combining theoretical knowledge with real-world, hands-on training and more complex scenarios. This is also important for preparing students for the job market. Read our first interview here.
