New training on cyber security and investigations being offered by the Digital Data and Skills Academy
Officers and staff working in law enforcement roles across the UK can sign up to new training on cyber security and investigations being offered by the Digital Data and Skills Academy (DDSA).
The DDSA is a collaboration between Police Scotland and TRACER (Threat Risk Assessment Capability Exploitation and Research) which, in partnership with IT company Cisco, are building an academy at the Scottish Police College to deliver training across multiple disciplines.
The courses on offer include the Advanced Learning Pathway, which provides students with cutting-edge knowledge of modern networks, cyber attacks and cyber security.
It has been specifically designed for students from a policing background to enhance their technical skills in a rapidly expanding and evolving field.
The pathway course is taught using a blended format, with distance learning and classroom work in a custom-built DDSA lab. The course is split into four courses, with distance learning over three months for each course, in addition to a total of five weeks at the college.
As well as the Advanced Learning Pathway, other courses are also available for community groups and organisations.
