TRA Partners With EC-Council to Educate Students on Cyber Security

Oct 03, 2010 – The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) represented by the National Computer Emergency Response Team (aeCERT), is joining hands with the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) to initiate a nationwide campaign aiming to educate students on cyber security and risks of improper use of the internet.
As a result of the joint cooperation between aeCERT and EC-Council, a series of information security lessons will be offered to school children during an “information security awareness camp”. These lessons are specifically designed by aeCERT and EC-Council to raise awareness of the students regarding the online threats that might endanger them while using the internet.
The objectives of the campaign also include providing students with necessary information about optimal use of the social networking sites and how to avoid suspicious sites and persons. After the successful completion of the training, students will obtain a globally recognized information security certificate by the EC-Council.
