WorldSkills Cybersecurity Team Ireland Training

MTU are calling all Cybersecurity Experts, as they need your help to train/mentor WorldSkills Team Ireland Cybersecurity who will be competing in Skill 54 – Cybersecurity at the International WorldSkills Competition in Lyon in September this year.

The Irish team this year consists of two working individuals, one with a blue team focused skillset and the other with a red team focused skillset. The aim is to improve their knowledge and skills so that they can have the best possible chance of succeeding in France on the international stage representing Ireland.

Therefore, MTU are looking for support to train the Team on specific cybersecurity aspects, click here for more details.

The Ask: Provide a 2-hour or longer online training/mentoring session on a cybersecurity topic of your choice (see list below). This can be supported by the Cyber Skills cyber range infrastructure if needed. Also, if you have other training resources which you think would help the team, and you are willing to supply same, that would be great.
