GCSP (Training Courses) - Thu, 25/09/2014 - 16:49

This five day Leadership Course provides an opportunity for current and potential leaders to enhance their understanding of sustainable peacebuilding and leadership styles. Although the body of knowledge about peacebuilding is growing, a lack of clarity about what makes peacebuilding effective persists.

This course provides an opportunity for practitioners to enhance their understanding of both leadership and sustainable peacebuilding.

GCSP (Training Courses) - Thu, 25/09/2014 - 14:05

Cybersecurity Module

GCSP (Training Courses) - Thu, 25/09/2014 - 12:29

The Cyber world is evolving very quickly. It is becoming a growing challenge for the nations and internationally. The key question is how to improve the preparedness of the modern societies and how to build new capacities in the cyber word. Awareness is crucial to further development as the weakest links in the chain are the users, be they individuals, companies or governments, while education is decisive in mitigating the shortage of skilled cyber-professionals. New collaboration models are needed and the role of the private sector in cyber security is crucial.

Cyber security has also become a integral dimension of global security policy and almost every crisis is having its “cyber front”. The most recent case is the Ukrainian crisis. Edward Snowden’s disclosures have been a serious blow to citizens’ trust of governments. Can political leaders still impact users’ online behavior? Is personal data gathering an infringement of human rights or a “necessary evil”? How can governments be held more accountable in cyber-space? Cyber-security’s concepts and legislation clearly need to be better defined.
