A programme of practice-focused training in cybersecurity


Description

A programme of practice-focused training in cybersecurity that builds on the experience of leading digital economy companies has been developed as part of the national programme Digital Economy of the Russian Federation.
The Programme includes modules of lectures on the following topics:
information security methodology;
the main trends in the information security in a digital economy;
interaction between the state, business and citizens on information security
in a digital economy.
The Programme combines the latest theoretical problems of information security and international and Russian practices from the best experts in the field, including lectures, discussions, case studies and analysis of best practices, which involve international experts.
1,400 Bank of Russia employees and 920 representatives of law enforcement agencies, such as the Federal Security Service of Russia, the Interior Ministry of Russia, the Federal National Guard Troops Service, the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation and the Prosecutor General’s Office have completed the training. The training is conducted in online format, and more than 100 training events have been held. The programme is particularly relevant, given the growing scale of fraudulent transactions in the credit and financial sector and the development of new information technologies. The programme implementation significantly contributes to combating fraud, improving cyber security, which will definitely have a beneficial impact on the development of the financial system and society, as well as enhancing and strengthening digital immunity which will result in a quicker response to information security
incidents
The Bank of Russia will continue to implement the Programme. In Q1 2021, the training will be provided to organisations of the credit and financial system; in Q2, the training is planned for faculty at higher education institutions in the field of information security; it is planned to provide training to leading digital economy companies.
