Project Background

The issues of cyber-security vulnerabilities, national security, public safety, economic prosperity and critical infrastructure were discussed on Explanatory session between EU and ME (December 2012) during the Screening chapter 10 – “Information society”. EU has highlighted for ME to begin with coordinated national initiative focused on cyber-security awareness, education, trainings, and professional development. Therefore, the Government and higher education institutions (HEI) must encourage cyber-security competence across the nation and build an agile, highly skilled workforce capable of responding to a dynamic and rapidly developing array of threats.

This project will enable fulfillment of mentioned issues by enhancing the overall ME cyber-security educational system and accelerating the availability of educational and training resources designed to improve the cyber behavior, skills, and knowledge of every segment of the population, enabling a safer cyberspace for all. Thereby, the project will help to secure ME digital nation capable of advancing national economic prosperity and security in the 21st century through innovative cyber-security education (with different levels, ranging from promotions, specialized trainings to master studies), and awareness on a grand scale.
