The world is coping with a wide range of challenges such as migration, cyber-attacks, organised crime, and other new challenges, including a recent virus-led crisis. In the past years these challenges have also become security issues of importance to many European countries. Security challenges are important for any organisation or company, so experienced and well-trained security specialists are vital for development of any company.
At the moment, it is clear that European countries deal with these challenges in different ways. There are no unified standards and approaches as to how specialists should deal with these kind of challenges. There is a need for professional, well-trained specialists who can realise sound security risk management at various levels and in different kind of organisations.
During the intensive programme students will have the opportunity to learn about security risk management, develop skills, and gain knowledge about planning and implementing security management in various organisations. They will also learn about identifying and managing security risks. Of course, security education also requires practical knowledge and cooperation, so the course will include practical activities such as team challenges and exercises, and other activities that can be crucial factors in real situations.
The programme is organised by Turiba University (Riga, Latvia) in partnership with Kazimieras Simonavicius Universiry and few other European universities. On-site activities will take place on 7-11 May 2024 at Turiba University (Latvia).
