Cybercation - Nordic-Baltic educators' forum

What?

Cybercation – Nordic-Baltic Educators’ Forum is a side event of the Nordic-Baltic Cyber Battle 2022 (NBCB) taking place on 29 October from 12 pm till 3.15 pm in Tartu, Estonia.

It brings together teachers and educational organizations, whose mission is to support ICT studies in the Nordic-Baltic region. Its goal is to provide a wider forum and growing stage for cyber education, enable international networking for both students and educational institutions and develop long-lasting partnerships.

Why?

Cyber security is quickly growing to be a critical aspect in modern societies. We rely on it to have fresh drinking water, uninterrupted power supply, safe traffic, operational education and government, growing businesses and functional financial system.

Yet companies, governments and communities lack talented people, as cyber security is a complex field with a high barrier for entry. Cybercrime on the other hand has become a global phenomenon where criminals can conduct attacks on targets across borders with unprecedented impact.

There is a need to reach out to young people, girls and boys, who may not have an interest in cyber. And the best way doing it is through gamified training and of course the education system – teachers, professors, school directors, policy makers.
