Due to Action Plans and previous cyber security threats, cyber security drills were organized three times in Turkey between 2008 and 2013. During these drills on a national scale, special care was shown to include especially public agencies and institutions and participants from many different sectors and professional fields.
The Cyber Security Initiative
The Cyber Security Initiative operates under the coordination of the MTMC with the participation of public agencies, private sector stakeholders and NGOs to inform citizens and small businesses about cyber security, create awareness, develop and explain protective measures, determine standards for positive content production, sector risk analysis and cyber security and publish reports and guidelines.
Information Security Training
By requests of agencies that need it, different levels of training are provided by the TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Cyber Security Institute and TSE.
Cyber Security Summer Schools
Every year since 2012, a Cyber Security Summer School has been organized by the TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Cyber Security Institute to respond to the need for people trained in cyber security in Turkey.
Awareness and Training Websites
Current warnings, informative guides and technical articles are broadcasted on the website called the National Information Security Gateway. Everyone and every organization concerned with information security can contribute content to the gateway. A very important function in terms of creating the accumulation of knowledge concerning information security needed has been assigned to the gateway. Another important objective is to provide more interactive settings like e-mail lists through which public agency employees concerned with information security can exchange information directly.
The “I Am Protecting My Information” E-Learning Project is a social responsibility project conducted by TÜBİTAK-BİLGEM-SGE within the scope of the National Information Systems Program. The website presents basic information security awareness training that can be accessed by everyone. Ongoing work: Due to increasing threats and the ever growing significance of cyber security both the 65 th Government Program and the 2015-2018 Information Society Strategy and Action Plan have especially emphasized cyber safety and the need for increased awareness on this subject.
