iPROCEEDS-2: Online workshop on cybersecurity for Albania’s CSIRT – Table-top exercise for testing procedures, crisis management processes, institutional arrangements and agreements

The increased vulnerability of both individuals and private companies, as well as critical infrastructure to cyber predators, has led governments to pay more attention to the national and international responses to cybersecurity. To come to the support of relevant Albanian authorities, the iPROCEEDS-2 project organised on 20 January 2022 an online workshop on interagency cooperation on cybercrime and cybersecurity.

The workshop aimed at enhancing the capabilities of the national Albanian Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) to test procedures, crisis management processes, institutional arrangements and agreements. The expected outcomes were achieved by bringing together national CSIRT specialists and representatives of the online service providers in Albania and international experts on cybersecurity.

The participants to the online activity have deepened their knowledge on the cyberthreat intelligence landscape, procedures of sharing of data and incident reporting between the cybersecurity agency and online service providers targeted by such attacks, new threats and challenges in preventing and handling security threats in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The interaction between participants was facilitated through a series of hands-on exercises and case scenarios, proposed by the international experts with the aim of increasing the practical knowledge and skills of the participants (open-source searches, running different queries in order to obtain intelligence on the threat).

The project will continue to organize similar activities meant to further reinforce the response to cybersecurity threats of the iPROCEEDS-2 countries/area.
