Encouraging Cyber Defense Awareness in the Balkans
17-19th March, Skopje, Macedonia
An Advanced Research Workshop to boost awareness level in the field of cyber security on the Balkans has been organized by the Bulgarian Euro-Atlantic Youth Club and the Macedonian Research Centre for Security Defence and Peace.
Supported by the NATO Science for Peace and Security programme and participants coming from the Balkans, Baltics and Turkey the programme aims to develop competences in the field of cyber security, draw attention to the importance of Critical Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) in individual countries and cope with the challenges of modern ‘Hybrid War’.
XLAB (Aleš Černivec as speaker) offers expertise on how to mitigate cyber threats within the module Human Factor Challenges for Social Engineering and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).
