INCIBE-CERT technical webinars

Cybersecurity and trust in the digital realm are currently two of the most important challenges facing governments, businesses and citizens. These aspects are extremely important in a global, interconnected and technology-dependent context such as the present one, and are essential to achieving the necessary trust in daily technology use.

In this context, INCIBE-CERT is working on different actions for the specialized dissemination of technical cybersecurity aspects in order to improve the preparation and knowledge levels of specialized professionals in this field. To this end, a series of specific technical contents have been developed, in brief format, allowing specific information to be assimilated quickly, under the format of webinars.

The contents of these webinars cover some introductory technical aspects for different topics within the field of cybersecurity, and in particular may be of interest mainly to system administrators, network administrators, support or helpdesk technicians, developers, and other IT profiles with basic cybersecurity knowledge and/or who wish to expand their knowledge and specialize in adequately protecting their systems.

They are available with audio in Spanish and with subtitles in both Spanish and English. Each one lasts approximately 40 minutes and some of them have examples and practical exercises.
