This was stated by Minister of Defence of the Republic of Macedonia, Zoran Jolevski, in his address before the participants at the NATO Advanced School dedicated on combating ISIS through cyberspace, which opened today in Ohrid.
The Associate Professor Zlatogor Minchev from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences which together with the Military Academy “General Mihailo Apostolski” as the co-organizer of this event under the auspices of NATO, said that this was the third consecutive activity dedicated to cyber security, but that this time, the classes were directly related to the radicalization of cyberspace, a challenge that was extremely important for the region and beyond.
The advanced school was attended by over 45 participants from the region, with over 20 professionals from NATO, the US, Israel and other countries as lecturers. During the five working days the participants of the school will learn about the global trends regarding the use of cyberspace and technology by terrorist organizations, and will conduct a detailed analysis of these trends in Southeast Europe. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to build regional cooperation, which is an essential component of building resistance against the use of cyberspace by terrorist organizations.
