In the framework of the creation of a safe cyber ecosystem for business in Albania, on January 31, 2024, the “Cybersecurity Hackathon” activity was organized with participants from the business sector, under the direction of the Albanian Trade Union with the support of NAECCS and the Risi Albania project, implemented by Helvetas.
Considering the digitization of processes and the evolution of technologies that businesses use as well as the increase in the number of cyber security threats, the development of human and technical capacities in this area is essential to guarantee the security and continuity of business operations. This activity, organized in the format of a cyber training, created the opportunity for IT and cyber security experts of businesses to test and expand their knowledge under the guidance of NAECCS professional trainers. The cyber training focused on the implementation and management of simulated cyber attacks, with the aim of developing defensive tactics for the main business systems in Albania.
Deputy Director of NAECCS, Mrs. Floreta Faber, in her welcoming speech, expressed gratitude for the cooperation with RISI Albania in organizing joint activities and emphasized the importance of public-private cooperation for addressing cyber security challenges in the country. The key role of NAECCS was also underlined, to provide continuous support and cooperation to businesses and all critical sectors in Albania, for strengthening cyber security at the national level.
