Linux and White Hat Hacker Training Courses in Cybersecurity were Successfully Completed
The "Cyber Homeland" program, carried out by Bartın University (BARÜ) in collaboration with the Western Black Sea Development Agency (BAKKA), continues. New students who will contribute to the vision of creating a cyber homeland have joined the training program, which has benefited hundreds of people so far. In the latest courses of the program, which aims to contribute to the Presidential call for creating digital awareness in society, training on the Linux operating system and basic commands were provided, and work was done on cybersecurity threats and defense strategies.
BARÜ Cyber Homeland Coordinator, Dr. Lecturer Eyüp Burak Ceyhan, provided information about the work carried out and said, "During the training, our students had the opportunity to learn Linux operating system and basic commands from our expert trainers who have specialized in this field. They also acquired the necessary basic skills to understand cybersecurity threats and develop defense strategies in the white hat hacker training. I congratulate our students for their high performance and dedication throughout the training. I believe that our students will successfully utilize these gains in their future careers in cybersecurity."
BARÜ Rector, Prof. Dr. Orhan Uzun emphasized the importance of the training provided within the scope of the "Cyber Homeland" program and said, "We are making efforts with all our components in the field of Cyber Homeland and continuing to increase our competence in this area."
Rector Uzun also underlined that the young people who successfully completed their training can take up positions in different sectors and said, "We are aware that digitization, which changes life in every aspect, can cause significant material and spiritual damages through its misuse. I wholeheartedly believe that the qualified human resources we train and the work we do in the national cybersecurity field, which is seen as a guarantee of development, will achieve significant results. I would like to thank our Minister of Industry and Technology, Mr. Mustafa Varank, for his support on our journey to the future. I would also like to express my gratitude to the General Director of Development Agencies, Mr. Barış Yeniçeri, and the Secretary General of BAKKA, Dr. Lutfi Altunsu, for their close attention and contributions towards achieving better outcomes. I thank Dr. Lecturer Eyüp Burak Ceyhan and all our academic and administrative staff for their efforts to prepare our young people for the future, and wish them continued success.
