Online Course 51/2022: Security and Protection of Public Spaces, Critical Infrastructures and Cyber-systems - from Protection to Resilience
17 October 2022 to 28 October 2022

The aim of the training activity is to improve the protection of public spaces and critical infrastructure by enhancing participants’ competences to apply the general critical infrastructure security measures and cybersecurity. The course also aims to improve participants' skills in identifying and managing risk as well as identifying and linking the impact of new technologies for criticial infrastructre protection.

The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and will accommodate interactive, participatory and practical discussions and shared lessons learned from different cases studies concerning protection of public places and critical infrastructures.

Upon completion of the training activity, participants will be able to:

  • identify and manage the risks;
  • know and apply general critical infrastructure security measures;
  • describe and distinguish the functions of Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs);
  • recognise and implement regulatory compliance;
  • articulate and promote public-private collaboration;
  • define and implement quality assurance;
  • identify and relate the impact of new technologies.

The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills (at least B2 level). The entire activity will be carried out online hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.

No special experience is required from participants but it is important that they are open-minded, active and willing to share their ideas/experience during the learning process.

The course will be delivered over a period of two weeks, from 17 to 28 October 2022. Participants are expected to study around 2-3 hours per day during this period in order to be able to complete the activity (in total 30 training hours). While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the course continuously on a daily basis. This is important as the attendants will need to cooperate with other participants virtually and complete small tasks/assignments then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively.
