In this module, you will learn about the basics of cyber security (CS).
This Cyber security course provides a strong foundation on the fundamentals of cybersecurity, basic security concepts and web-based risks mitigation.
The piloting of the CS module have been prepared as a project week where learners are going to work in smaller groups. On the first day, experts from companies will present and explain the area of cybersecurity. The learners will then be grouped and learn about the challenges they are going to work on during the week. The second and fourth days are dedicated to solving challenges, finding a solution and preparing a presentation of the activities carried out. On day three, a virtual tour of the company Kolektor Digital is planned.
The last day is reserved for finalizing the presentations and presenting the learner’s ideas/solutions to company experts and teachers. The learners will be awarded micro-credentials for gained skills.
