Aalborg University has a comprehensive knowledge and expertise in the field of internet services and applications, including the take-up of new technologies in the industry such as industry 4.0 and internet of things. It has set a strategic focus on cybersecurity and contributes to several initiatives and projects. In COM³, Aalborg University brings its expertise and helps develop support measures so that SMEs can adopt new technologies in a safe environment.

In this context, Shreyas Srinivasa, PhD researcher at Aalborg University, created a training module “Cybersecurity Readiness through Honeypots“ to help participants understand the importance of cybersecurity and give them keys to use defensive tools like honeypots for early detection of threats.

Through this e-learning module, participants will gain a better understanding of defensive security systems. These facilitate defending against Internet and Cyberattacks by early detection of threats. They also help in administration of security settings in the organization digital infrastructure.
