Activities within the LMPI Project

Since 04.09.2019, within the Erasmus+ LMPI project, UTM teachers have been trained in the field of Information Security, with the trainer Valeriu Cernei, consultant and certified auditor in the field of Information Security, BSD Management.

The training seminar “Aspects of management and audit of Information Security” aims to provide knowledge to the participants in order to understand the specific aspects of information security and audit. At the end of the training sessions, the participants will be able to demonstrate a better understanding of the objectives of the SMSI, the internal organization of the SMSI, the security of the information of the organization, the audit, the analysis and the evaluation of the security risks, the applicability of different organizational and technical security measures, the applicability of the international standards and methodologies. and national standards in the field of information security, in particular standards in the ISO / IEC 27000 family and in particular ISO / IEC 27001: 2005. Also, participants will know and understand how information security is applied at different levels and components of the information system. The topics of the seminar were established by taking into account the areas of interest of the participants, based on the training programs developed within the LMPI project.
