NATO trains Iraqi Experts in Cyber Defense

The course focused on raising cyber security awareness and provided the trainees with the expertise and technical knowledge to help increase resilience of their national networks

Iraqi experts were trained on cyber defense at the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey to improve their expertise and technical knowledge and to contribute to the strengthening of Iraqi national cyber defense capabilities. According to a NATO publication, this course was supported by the Science for Peace and security (SPS) Program and took place from 21 November to 2 December 2016.

This training course aimed at Iraqi system/network administrators was tailored specifically to Iraq’s needs by focusing on its cyber security and defense requirements presented to NATO. Overall, 16 civil servants from the new Iraqi Computer Incident Response Team (CIRT) were trained during the course.

The hands-on training program included both theoretical sessions as well as practical laboratory exercises of core aspects of cyber defense, including cryptanalysis, prevention of data exfiltration, advanced digital forensics, and conducting vulnerability assessment.

The course focused on raising cyber security awareness and provided the trainees with the expertise and technical knowledge to help increase resilience of their national networks. Upon their return, the trainees will be able to apply the gained knowledge in the daily operation of their institutions thereby significantly contributing to the strengthening of Iraqi national cyber defense capabilities.
