committed to strengthening their digital security literacy
will be a series of three 90-minute breakfast workshops, starting in

1. Building your “Cybersecurity Policy Foundations”
12 October // 8:00-10:00
this foundational course, we will provide the attendees with an
overview of the state of cybersecurity and cybercrime today. We will
cover the most common cyber threats, such as tech scams, malware
attacks, phishing and social engineering. We will also provide more
insight into nation-state attacks and ongoing diplomatic efforts to
address cybercrime, threatening democratic processes.
2. Building your “Cybersecurity Toolkit”
16 November // 8:00-10:00
this course, the attendees will learn how to avoid common security
mistakes and protect oneself from different tech scams and online fraud
when using technology. In addition, as policymakers travel quite
frequently, this workshop will also introduce a wireless security and
will give practical solutions to protecting oneself when being on the
go. At the end of this workshop, the attendees will have their
“cybersecurity toolkit” – a set of skills that is constantly evolving.
3. Practicing your “Cybersecurity Culture”
7 December // 8:00-10:00
conclude the training series, an interactive exercise bringing together
the learnings of the previous two workshops will be organised.
Participants will have a chance to put in practice their cybersecurity
skills and incorporate these learnings into everyday work.
