Gentlab joined the online Kick-Off meeting of Cyber-MSME – Cybersecurity for Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises, a project co-financed by Erasmus+ Programme.
On December 1, 2020, Gentlab along with other participants joined the online Kick-Off Meeting of Cyber-MSME (Cybersecurity for Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises), a Project co-founded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, which brings together Belgium, Italy, Poland, Romania and Spain. The meeting has been organized in an online environment due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The European Commission is aware of the growing threat posed by cyberattacks and they acknowledge the need to equip micro and small businesses with tools to deal with these cyber-attacks and this is the purpose of the Cyber-MSME project.
The partners involved in this project will carry out the following activities:
a) Develop the Cyber-MSME OER Platform, a repository of knowledge accessible to all, free of charge, in full Open Access mode and in multilingual versions (EN, IT, PO, RO, ES)
b) Develop a shared methodology for the mapping of current trends, threats and opportunities and then consolidate the findings in a final report on the basis of which the training and tools will be designed
c) Define the professional profile of a Cyber-Security Expert within MSMEs so as to facilitate job matching between demand and supply: enterprises increasingly look for cybersecurity experts, and this makes for a great employment opportunity for young people
d) Develop training courses and operational tools tailored to the needs of MSMEs
e) Deliver the training to 150 target groups and collect feedback to fine tune the material created
f) Develop guidelines to facilitate the uptake of Cyber-MSMEs so as to sustain project results beyond Erasmus co-financing and widen its range of impact
We will let you know how the project develop at every step of the road.
