New Cyber Security Course for Master Students

I'm happy to announce the new Advanced Malware Analysis course I've been working for eight years is coming out soon as a part of the EU academic project ENGENSEC financed by the European Commission. In light of the recent nation-state cyber attacks, I'm glad for being related to educating the next generation of cybersecurity experts being able to counteract cyber attacks at any level.

The course will be adopted by universities in Ukraine, Sweden, Poland, and other partners. It will include theoretical and practical classes on the latest types of cyber attacks, analysis, detection, and prevention technologies totaling 270 hours (7.5 ECTS). You can find the course content below.

The course will be presented during the Summer School for students and Train the Trainer workshop for teachers this summer in Lviv Polytechnic National University.

Finally, I'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to this course, namely:
  • Anders Carlsson, BTH
  • Dragos Ilie, BTH
  • Dmitriy Komashinskiy, F-Secure
  • Vladimir Obrizan, Design and Test Lab

We welcome security and academic organizations to join the reviewing process.
