Information Security Modular Training for SME

The general aim of this project is to provide owners of SMEs/MEs and their staff with understandable and efficient information and a modular training on Information Security (IS) in order to meet their obligations under the terms of the legislation and to ensure their compliance. The cross-border development of IS activities is important, as several rights and approaches in the EU vary considerably in terms of privacy, data-security, consumer rights and liabilities.

Therefore we offer:

  1. a multi-national information and training portal, aiming to facilitate an enriched and speeded-up learning process by sharing, structuring and modelling a huge critical mass of informal expertise and tacit knowledge, e.g. to develop the understanding of legislation concerning data protection throughout the EU with focus on the 6 partner countries and our defined target groups.
  2. a tailored blended learning program in the field of IS for SMEs/MEs and their employees, address the demand-supply mismatch identified, clarify their specific needs and to encourage them to adopt better and more advanced security services. The concrete outcome will be a modular training of about 40 training units: we plan 16 classroom units & 24 e-learning/self-study units in order to provide the target group with a flexible but efficient way of learning, which is not too time consuming.
