  • Privacy and security are old terms, but their importance only grew in recent years. The module “Privacy and Security” explains the modern interpretation of privacy as a human right in a digitalized era.

    The Digital Citizenship Educational Handbook of the Council of Europe defines privacy as a right that “concerns mainly the personal protection of one’s own and others’ online information, while security is related more to one’s own awareness of online actions and behaviour.”

    Privacy and security are dependent on each other, more so in a digital environment. Facing threats relating to hardware, software, and the user themselves, protecting one’s own privacy is a continuous challenge and responsibility for any digital citizen.

    This course aims at raising awareness on the importance of privacy in relation to living a fulfilling life and the necessary steps that need to be taken to protect this privacy. It will present knowledge and practical advice on the fundamentals of modern security in the face of modern risks. 

    This course consists of 5 modules. We invite you to introduce yourself, go through the course materials at your own pace and take the assessments at your convenience. After completing all the steps, you can download your course completion certificate.

    We wish you happy learning!
