Albanian Cyber Academy
On July 2-4, 2017, the National Authority for Electronic Certification and Cyber Security, in cooperation with the University of Business and Technology (UBT-CERT / Kosovo), organized the Albanian Cyber Academy for the first time.
This event is part of the Summer School ..., which is organized every year at the UBT cert premises, in order to increase the knowledge of the best students in the field and to guide them towards professionalism and market demands in the field of cyber security.
Both collaborative institutions published the announcement for the development of Albania Cyber Academy, on their official web pages, about 74 students from public and private universities in the country who attended the last year this master in the branches of Technology Technology information. Student attendance was made by a joint committee based on their best results and altogether 30 students were selected.
Given the fact that information technology is developing very fast, market demand for high performance of field professionals is growing. Apparently, Albanian Cyber Academy marked a novelty in orienting students to market demands, telling their knowledge and implementing them through training exercises.
Academy lecturers were field experts from Microsoft and Assoc.Prof. Philip Polstra from Pennsylvania University, USA, where they discussed important topics including Information Security, Network Security, Windows Forensics, Linux Forensics, etc.
