The final CyberPhish partners meeting in Cyprus

On 8 and 9 September, the CyberPhish Consortium met in Cyprus to discuss the results and challenges, and plan the remaining activities.

The main topics and discussions at the meeting were focused on the following project activities:

  • ongoing pilot training: updated results, findings and approval of future activities and deadlines
  • the 6th intellectual output –Methodological guidelines for trainers and for implementation of „Phishing in age of 4th industrial revolution“: approval of future activities and deadlines
  • the Multiplier Events: action plans in every Project Partner’s country
  • the Project’s dissemination activities.

The launched learning environment www.cyberphish.eu/learn allows participants to study in a way that suits them and anyone is welcome to join the course.

This was the project partners’ final meeting before the project will has been finished in November.

 

Free CyberPhish course for those who want to avoid online scams

Anyone who wishes to increase their knowledge of online fraud is welcome to enroll in the pilot online learning course. You will learn about phishing attacks by using training materials and scenarios where you will have to identify if it is a phishing attack and what you would do in such a situation.

Participants will learn in a distance learning environment, using learning materials, self-evaluation tests and simulations. At the end of the course, participants are encouraged to take a final exam. A certificate of participation will be awarded to those who pass the final test with a score of at least 75%.

Participants in the pilot training can compete against each other by collecting points and badges for solving self-tests and simulations.

The CyberPhish pilot training in English, Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian and Greek will run in all partner countries until the end of September.

Participants are expected to gain a better understanding of cyber security, learn how to recognize phishing, how to avoid online scams, and what to do in the event of a fraud issue.

Register at www.cyberphish.eu/learn to enroll in the free online course.

CyberPhish partners meeting in Malta

On 8 July, the CyberPhish Consortium met in Malta to discuss the results and share experiences on the ongoing pilot training.

During the meeting, partners shared experiences, discussed challenges, suggestions and solutions. They also discussed the dissemination opportunities and impact of the project, and envisaged a dissemination plan and tools to attract more participants to register for the CyberPhish pilot training (www.cyberphish.eu/learn) in all partner countries.

The final meeting of the project partners is scheduled for autumn in Cyprus.

 

Fourth CyberPhish partner meeting

On 11 April, CyberPhish partners met remotely to discuss the results of the project and prepare for the pilot training. The partners were introduced to the online learning environment (www.cyberphish.eu/learn) and made suggestions for its improvement before the pilot training starts.

During the meeting, guidelines for the implementation of the pilot training in each partner country were presented. It is expected that at least 120 participants from all partner countries will be invited for the pilot training. During the pilot training, participants will learn through a distance learning environment, which will include training mterials, self-tests and simulation questions.

The CyberPhish partners have agreed to hold the next face-to-face meeting in early July in Malta.

3rd transnational project partners meeting (virtual) 

The third virtual meeting of the international project “Safeguarding against Phishing in the age of 4th Industrial Revolution” („CyberPhish“) partners took place on 25th and 26th of November 2021.

16 the Erasmus+ KA2 “CyberPhish” project participants from Vilniaus universitetas / Vilnius University (the project coordinator, Lithuania), Information Technologies Institute (Lithuania), Altacom (Latvia), University of Tartu (Estonia), DOREA Educational Institute (Cyprus) and Macdac Engineering Consultancy Bureau (Malta) met in the two sessions of the event.

Even though some of Project’s results already have been reached and other outputs are still in progress, the participants are only halfway to finishing the Project. Therefore, the “CyberPhish” team members discussed about relevant intellectual outputs during the meeting.

These are the most important topics that were discussed in the meeting:

  • The 3rd intellectual output – Online learning material: review of the output’s current status and approval of future activities and deadlines.
  • The 4th intellectual output – Simulations for education (gamification): approval of future activities and deadlines
  • The 5th intellectual output – Knowledge evaluation system: approval of future activities and deadlines
  • The Project’s dissemination activities
  • Project Management

The project aims to address the education and labour market requirements for cybersecurity/phishing skills and knowledge for students and graduates in university.

Although all participants did not have a chance to meet in person once again because of Covid19 pandemic, online sessions were still very beneficial in terms of planning and coordinating the future activities.
