Õppemetoodika: 

  • kombineeritud õppemeetodid, mis sidustavad individuaalõpet (näiteks töö andmetega), grupipõhist õpet (meeskonnatöö projektid) kui e-õpet (e-õppeplatvormide abiga);
  • võtmepädevuste omandamine on toetatud väikestes gruppides ülekantavate oskuste omandamisele;

Õppetöö keeleks on inglise keel, õpe toimub tsükliõppe formaadis. Inglise keele oskuse parandamiseks pakub EBSi võõrkeelte instituut võimalust enesetäienduseks õppetöö esimeses osas.

Mitigation Human Risk Behaviour
Cyber Hygiene e-Learning Platform

In Module I under the subject Digitalisation. The course will be delivered at Boot Camp.  

The Cyber Hygiene e-Learning Platform is an interactive course designed for mitigating human risk behaviour in cyber space. The aim of this course is to raise the level of awareness of the participants in cyber threats by introducing different real-life case studies based on various cyber threat vectors. Based on the replies each participant will get their personal cyber security risk behaviour matrix that can later be benchmarked with other participants/members of organization. Full spectrum of threat vectors will be covered during the case studies. The course is divided into three parts:

  • Initial Profiling Test
  • 20 interactive case studies based on real-life scenarios
  • Final Quiz to assess the effectiveness of the course

Proprietary CybExer DigiTest software shall be used to carry out the course.

Lab: “Enterprise Under Cyber Attack!” Threats, Plans, Decisions.
Simulation: Interactive and in real-time between EBS and 3-5 EBS international partner universities.  

In Module V the Lab.

“Enterprise Under Cyber Attack!” is an interactive simulation, where participants need to react to various cyber threat vectors that can target businesses. The simulation is carried out in StratEx software created by BHC Laboratory. During the 1-Day simulation, participants need to take decisions, formulate courses of action and test the effectiveness of existing regulations and security measures. The simulation is followed by a feedback session where the results, concerns are discussed and comparisons between participants made. This is an effective tool that can be used to improve business continuity and risk management plans in light of recent cyber threats, educate senior management, plan security investments and test/improve security regulations. The simulation is tested worldwide and based on the BHC Laboratory experience in creating government level cyber security simulations in cooperation with NATO CCDCoE (Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence) and EDA (European Defence Agency). The similar software simulation has been used in multiple government-level strategic decision-making exercises involving participants from Austria, Colombia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Latvia, Moldova, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA and several other countries.
