Similarly to the 21/22 academic year, the BISITE Research Group is responsible for coordinating the third C1b3rWall Academy training action on cybersecurity in collaboration with the National Police, which is promoting this initiative.

After more than 50,000 students from 82 different countries took part in the last edition, this year’s edition features 450 hours of free training and 20 new modules adapted to the ENISA profiles of the European Union, which will be available progressively over the coming weeks. The content covers a wide range of key topics, among them, cybersecurity for businesses, cryptography, databases, metaverse and internet law enforcement.

Two modules are currently open: “Philosophy and technology” and “The deep web and the dark web.” They feature professional and extensively trained speakers from different companies, institutions and universities, who have so far provided key insights into big data, machine learning, web structure and pentesting tools.

List of C1b3rWall Academy 22/23 modules

New content will continually be uploaded until December 2023, and anyone wishing to participate will be able to access the third edition of the C1b3rWall Academy in full and free of charge via the e4you course platform. Each participant can view the content in the order they wish and progress at their own pace, reviewing the lectures as often as necessary. In addition, certificates of attendance and completion can be obtained by the participants. They are issued by the University of Salamanca, which guarantees and recognises the knowledge acquired by the graduate of the course.

We look to you to keep building on the increasingly important area of online security, so that together we can ensure that we are protected from cybercrime through quality training.
