Intensive course in Riga on security risk management has started

From August 6th to August 18th, an international intensive course on security risk management will take place at the Turiba University. The course will involve 33 students from 6 countries, and it will be led by lecturers, experts, and industry professionals from 5 countries.
The world faces a wide range of challenges, such as migration, cyber-attacks, organized crime, and other emerging issues, including the recent crisis caused by the Covid virus. In recent years, these challenges have also become security issues that are important to many European countries. Professionals and well-trained specialists are needed who can implement security risk management at various levels.
During the intensive course, students will have the opportunity to learn about security risk management, develop skills, and gain knowledge about planning and implementing security management in various organizations. They will also learn about identifying and managing security risks. Of course, security education also requires practical knowledge, so the intensive course will include practical activities such as close combat, shooting, various challenge team exercises, and other activities that can be crucial factors in real situations.

The course is organized within the ERASMUS+ partnership project called SECUREU. The aim of this project is to develop various digital teaching materials on security risk management. In this summer course, the materials will be tested in real teaching processes and improved based on student evaluations later on. Starting from the next year, teaching materials on security risk management will be available to anyone interested.
Students will receive 3 ECTS credits for completing the course. To earn credits, students must attend lectures and pass the final examination.
