Cyber ​​threats are not a problem anymore.  Here's how to protect information and prevent cyber attacks.




Recent years have been full of cyber security disasters: attacks using malicious software, attacks using fake video and audio messages in phishing emails to fetch passwords and personal data.  And this, of course, is not the entire list of cyber threats of our times.

Former Cisco CEO John Chambers once said: "There are two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those that do not yet know that they have been hacked."




The U.S. government recently accused Chinese hackers, who gained access to computers of 45 companies around the world, in industries ranging from aviation to oil and gas exploration.

According to the IMF, losses from all global cyber attacks reach $ 53 billion. In July 2017, the Petya virus created problems with banking operations in Ukraine and abroad, estimated losses of $ 850 million.




Endgame security firm began using artificial intelligence models to predict cyber attacks.  Learning is based on the collision of two neural networks.  They separate the noise from the signals that determine the threat to the system.  In bad hands, such a neural network can generate very complex attacks.  Hackers can replace files during AI training, as a result of which the viruses will not be recognized as a threat.

This is an eternal circle where cybersecurity experts come up with more reliable and sophisticated methods of protection, and hackers find loopholes and holes and use them for personal gain.




In modern society, the demand for cyber defenders is growing.  Planning the fight against cyberthreats requires the training of cybersecurity professionals.  The educational program "Security of Information and Communication Systems" of the specialty 125 "Cybersecurity" allows the student to receive a fundamental mathematical education on which the professional and practical training of future specialists is based.  These are specialists in organizing information security, in countering hacker attacks, in securing network administration, in developing integrated information protection systems, etc.

Cyber ​​defenders are, of course, first-class programmers who know such programming languages ​​as C/C ++, MySQL, Java, etc.




This specialty is for those who are ready to think creatively and constantly improve themselves, because every day you come across something new and unsolved.  Complex, and at the same time, interesting challenges are always waiting for cyber defenders!

In KNURE there's a CENTER FOR STUDENTS TAUGHT IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE.  This is an excellent opportunity to acquire knowledge in the  specialty 125 "Cybersecurity".
