Cybersecurity Course for NGOs

 Zrozumilo! Online Educational Platform presents a new course on personal and corporate cybersecurity and data protection released in the form of educational series. This course was developed by East Europe Foundation with the support of ERIM with funds from the European Union. The course is available at no charge

The course consists of ten series. The course presenter Yuriy Antoshchuk, trainer and consultant on new media and ICIT (information and communication Internet technologies), will tell you about useful platforms and services that Ukrainians use every day. He will also talk about programs that help create secure account passwords and will provide other useful tips.

 In addition, the course features another character – Ukrainian DJ Dizzy who, according to the plot, is exposed to educational blackmail. Following this captivating scenario, the audience will be able to learn about secure online communication, online personal data protection, and ways to ensure privacy in the wartime. 

 “Ukrainians often become targets of Russia’s wartime cyber aggression. According to the SSSCIP (the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection), the number of cyber attacks registered and investigated in 2022 grew 2.8 times compared to 2021,”  said Victor Liakh, President of East Europe Foundation. “Therefore, cybersecurity rules and prudent digital behavior become extremely important, especially in the most difficult times. This course will help public organizations discover useful tools to enhance their cyber resilience and to protect themselves from Internet fraudsters.”

The educational series is available at no charge, like everything else on Zrozumilo! Online Educational Platform, and is already accessible via the link:


The online course is created within the framework of the Stiykist’ Program, which is implemented by East Europe Foundation in a consortium of public organizations led by ERIM (France) in partnership with the Human Rights Houses Foundation, the Human Rights House – Tbilisi, the Black Sea Regional Cooperation Fund with funds from the European Union.
