The importance of cyber security in this digital era cannot be overstated. Experts believe that technology is more vulnerable than ever to external attack. A heart pacemaker, a dam, the grid supplying power to a city or even a traffic system is open to hacking. Companies spend millions in cyber security threat assessment and damage control.
Bhutan has been lucky not to have faced any major cyber security incidents so far. But we cannot be complacent. Our IT professionals need to be aware of the tools necessary to assess and thwart cyber security threats. It is for this reason that we have decided to organize this intensive training on cyber security titled “Cyber security Essentials for the IT Professional” from 12th to 17th November 2018 at Thimphu TechPark. The course covers the following four core Certifications from EC-Council, the world’s largest cyber security technical certification body that operates in 145 countries globally:
#1. CHFI v9- Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator,
#2. CASE- Certified Application Security Engineer,
#3. ECSA v10 -EC-Council Certified Security Analyst
#4. ECIH- EC-Council Certified Incident Handler
The training will be provided by an experienced resource person from India. For further details, call at 02-350052 or 17622732

BlockChain revolution has already started disruption in the financial industry and it is believed that it would bring about the next big revolution in the IT sector. Bitcoins, ethereum and other cryptocurrencies are all the rage today, but we have very limited understanding of them here in Bhutan today.
In order to be better prepared for the future, it will be important for leaders and managers in your company to understand the current state of this technology and take stock of where it is heading.
Thimphu TechPark has taken the initiative to organize a 5-day intensive training program titled “Understanding Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies for Managers” from 13th – 17th August 2018 at Namgay Heritage, Thimphu, in collaboration with London Institute of Business & Technology, Bangkok. The resource person will be Mr Lodewijk Veldhuijzen, CEO of Anything App AnyCoin. He is an industry expert with vast knowledge and experience in Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and ICO (Initial Coin Offering).
The course is designed to induce a competent level of understanding of key developments surrounding the blockchain and cryptocurrencies. It will cover all the major aspects and components that dictate the current market dynamics of the rapidly evolving crypto-financial economy, and enable individuals as well as organizations to transition from a passive or reactive stance to having the ability for critical decision- making in a proactive manner.
