Cybersecurity pilot trainings

In the CYRUS project, we design and implement cybersecurity training courses for skills development, upskilling and reskilling. These courses are aligned with the emerging cyber threats and the identified application scenarios in the transport and manufacturing domains.

We develop a set of specific short-term cybersecurity training courses for different roles across organisations in the transport and manufacturing sectors. Thereby, we pay special attention to the needs of SMEs and start-ups.

In this overview you fill find our pilot trainings, that are running from July to October 2024. At this stage of the project, you have the opportunity to sample a selected range of our courses for free in return for sharing your valuable feedback. The insights garnered will help us refine and customise these offerings to better suit your team’s unique needs in the final round of training sessions scheduled for 2025.

Do you have any questions regarding the registration? Do you need more information? Reach out to our help desk: training@scademy.com – we are happy to help you!

Available training courses

The trainings are for different target groups:

  • Engineers: Technical roles who have direct access, possibly not mediated by constrained HMI, can change the technical infrastructure
  • Administrative staff: Non-technical roles with no direct access (maybe through several levels of mediation of IT) to the technical infrastructure or the operation of the system
  • Operators: Non-technical roles with access to the technical infrastructure through severely constrained HMI (human machine interface). Operates the systems but typically cannot change it

All trainings are assigned to specific tracks.

  • The basic track provides basic information to align attendants for the specialised tracks.
  • Track 1 focuses on human-related security with the goal to provide a clear understanding of human-centred security problems and solutions.
  • Track 2 delves into cyber risk. It has two specialisation tracks: 2.1 is for DevSecOps and security testers. 2.2 is for network specialists and incident responders.
