Self-defense can be trained - even at CeBIT!

RUAG Cyber Security from Switzerland is running effective short training courses at CeBIT 2017 that are ideal for beginners and specialists and set out key decision-making criteria for protecting commercial information.

15 Mar. 2017

Who can access data and how? What are the consequences of that? Who might want to attack my organization? What techniques might be used and what sort of geopolitical motivations could be behind an attack? The quick-fire training courses from RUAG Cyber Security at the SWISS pavilion in Hall 6 are designed to answer these questions and more like them. Running up to four times a day, these short training units last around 45 minutes and go far beyond a simple simulation. Instead, the organizers from Switzerland want to give participants realistic methods they can use to combat risk.

The experts at RUAG work on the premise that Cyber Security depends on the awareness and actions of each and every individual. Indeed, only properly trained employees and managers who understand important details, aspects and decision-making criteria can provide effective protection for commercial information and processes, including while an attack is under way. The training sessions that RUAG Cyber Security is staging at CeBIT 2017 are aimed at beginners and more experienced visitors and consist of a comprehensive introduction followed by the opportunity for participants to put their skills in cyber security to the test in a practical exercise. On completing the exercise, participants can talk through the measures that were implemented with the experts from RUAG.
