A brand-new event on cybersecurity, Kaspersky.Academy Training Lab was conducted on June 17-20, 2019 in partnership with Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
Training Lab is a set of information security courses for professors and lecturers, who can later use the materials discussed in class for teaching purposes. The course was launched in Amsterdam and devoted to security monitoring and cyber threat hunting.
In only four days, the participants have learned about typical SOC infrastructure and security monitoring and hunting facilities in the enterprise. The course has covered network and perimeter security, Windows and Linux operational systems monitoring and auditing. All topics had corresponding lab assignments, including an additional lab on penetration testing and security assessment of online infrastructure.
Overall, 21 lecturers from 10 universities in 5 countries completed the course. The next step for the participants is an online examination to confirm their knowledge of the subject. Those who will succeed will get not only scripts for teaching but also an opportunity to become a Kaspersky.Academy Authorized Trainer and collaborate with the company in order to spread the knowledge on cybersecurity in other universities.
“[The trainer] provided very good insights into the actual application of contents in a practical environment. He shared his experience with us and allowed us to contribute to the direction of the lab. Practice sessions were adapted according to the needs of participants” – feedback by one of the attendees.
Kaspersky.Academy express its gratitude to Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, especially, Reza Esmaili, for his willingness to collaborate and help with the course organization in the Netherlands. A local version of Training Lab for Russian lecturers is awaited in autumn 2019 in Kaspersky’s HQ office.
