European Cyber Security Month (ESCM)

ECSM.png This October, as a part of the activities dedicated to the European Cyber Security Month (ESCM), the CyResLab (Cyber Resilience Lab) of ESI CEE is launching a special set of cyber security related courses, targeted to SME’s software developers, designers, application and system engineers. This is the technical layer of the general lines of ESI CEE in the field of Security by Design, Cyber Resilience, Privacy by Default and Secure Coding.


Top 10 Web Threats - 17 October 2016
A technical course, designed to introduce developers to the inner workings of the top web threats, how they are exploited, and how to write code that is secure against these threats.

Advanced Web Threats
The course intends to pick where “Top 10” left off – namely to deepen the understanding of the top vulnerabilities and to broaden the scope of vulnerabilities that are discussed.

Both web security days courses include live demos of attacks, exercises in detecting and leveraging threats, examples of weak and vulnerable code and the process of repairing it and fixing vulnerabilities, mitigation tactics, developer-specific best practices and discussions on how not to write vulnerable code in the process of daily work.

Practical PHP Security - 18 October 2016

The course is based on applying security principles in the everyday development process for the PHP language. This training is strongly focused on practice, including exercises that show PHP code with security defects and lets the participants practice fixing such issues.

Since the last decade, cyber-security, online safety and resilience against cyber-threats have become a key business priority. Protecting your company and yourself in the context of the more and more sophisticated cyber-attacks, as well as the integration of a general strategy for protection, reaction, management, and recovery from threats have become a paramount and a challenge.

The objectives of the European Cyber Security Month are:

• generate general awareness about cyber security, which is one of the priorities identified in the EU Cyber Security Strategy;
• generate specific awareness on Network and Information Security (NIS), which is addressed in the proposed NIS Directive;
• promote safer use of the Internet for all users;
• build a strong track record to raise awareness through the ECSM;
• involve relevant stakeholders;
• increase national media interest through the European and global dimension of the project;
• enhance attention and interest with regard to information security through political and media coordination.
