The training session was specifically tailored to cybersecurity and the security of the internet so the members of the referral mechanism could gain a better understanding of the usage of the internet, its benefits, and its risks.

During the training session, the participants were given a detailed presentation that included the usage of the internet from the early stages of internet development until recent developments with the usage of artificial intelligence. The shared information will help the members to mitigate potential risks associated with internet browsing.

A total of 12 participants, three of them women, gathered for this training which started with an introduction to the basics of the Internet. The training was held by Arian Hyseni, IT Manager and Coordinator of the Technical Staff. Hyseni presented his experience in cybersecurity, including advice on how to effectively use the internet and ensure the safety of internet users.

Throughout the training session, the participants exhibited a notable level of interest, particularly in the topic of two-step verification. The trainer delivered valuable lessons on the significance of implementing two-step verification, with a specific emphasis on securing social media profiles with this feature.

This training was held as part of the “Resilient Community Programme” founded by GCERF.
