CRDF Global Hosts Course to Enhance Cyber Hygiene Awareness in Ukraine

Thursday, April 23, 2020

From April 30 to May 20, 2020, CRDF Global will host a cyber hygiene e-learning course on practical recommendations for protecting personal data and safe usage of electronic devices. Geared towards university students in Ukraine, the course will teach safety rules for defending against hackers and threats while using computers, smartphones, and tablets.

Strong cybersecurity principals are an integral part of daily life, not only for businesses, governments, and educational institutions, but also for any individual accessing the internet. Cybersecurity covers everything related to the protection of personal information, intellectual property, data, as well as state and industry information systems against theft and corruption.

Cyber hygiene refers to the practices and actions that people can take to enhance the security of systems and devices while online. This can include creating strong passwords, ensuring anti-virus software is installed and up to date, and practicing safe email use.

The course will consist of 11 online training modules, developed in partnership with local experts such as Ernst and Young (E&Y) and Technomatics (TMX) in Ukraine. Current and prospective students from the following universities are eligible to register:

  • Kharkiv University of Radioelectronics
  • Kyiv State University of Infrastructure and Technologies
  • Lviv National Polytechnic University
  • Vinnytsya Technical University
