Cyber Academy — Launching Event

Cyber Academy — Launching Event

March 15, 2016 @ 17:30

Cyber Academy is the most sophisticated training course available in Kosovo, that will help you to enter in cyber security world, featuring an advanced hands-on computer lab environment challenging you to bring out your best penetration testing skills. The case studies include public vulnerabilities as well as vulnerabilities discovered by our team, all of which cover a wide range of applications and exploitation techniques.

Cyber Security is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. One of the most problematic elements of cyber security is the quickly and constantly evolving nature of security risks.

To deal with the current environment, advisory organizations are promoting a more proactive and adaptive approach. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), for example, recently issued updated guidelines in its risk assessment framework that recommended a shift toward continuous monitoring and real-time assessments. Our course instructors are real world practitioners and understand that teaching how to audit security under “ideal” conditions is of little value. We place great emphasis on creating scenarios which are as close to real world circumstances as possible. This allows our students to use what they learn at Cyber Academy immediately into real world pentesting assignments! We challenge our students to think out-of-the-box as most real world environments are unique and generally cannot have pre-determined tailor made solutions.

This program attracts students of computer science and engineering, cyber security enthusiast and white hat hackers.

Requirements:

  • Be openminded
  • Understand cyber security as a career
  • Open to different operating systems and programming languages
  • Enthusiastic about cyber security
  • Basic knowledge about computer systems
  • With great knowledge comes great responsibility “give back to society”
  • The launching event of the “Cyber Academy” will take place on March 15 (Tuesday), starting from 6pm, Innovation Centre Kosovo (ICK).

Open to all!
