In the framework of the project “Supporting BiH on its way to the EU”, the Centre for the European Perspective (CEP), in cooperation with the Directorate for European Integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina (DEI), is conducting the third training in selected chapters of the acquis for civil servants, working at competent authorities. The two-day training, which will be conducted virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, is taking place between 5 and 6 November 2020 on the topic of cyber security.

The aim of the project is to provide training for civil servants, working at competent authorities at all levels of the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and therefore contribute to advanced knowledge of civil servants working in the field of European integration. The inclusion of BiH into the European integration processes is one of the priorities set out in the basic guidelines of BiH’s foreign policy. The trainings provided will be focusing on topics highlighted by the Directorate for European Integration of BiH as priority areas in the period 2019 and 2020. These are topics related to the chapters of the acquis communautaire: 2 – Freedom of movement for workers, 3 – Right of establishment and freedom to provide services, 10 – Information society and media, 19 – Social policy and employment, and 23 – Judiciary and fundamental rights.

Slovenian experts from the National Cyber Security Incidence Response Center will share experiences and good practices in the field of cyber security, especially in responding to cyber incidents and raising public awareness.

The project is part of the CEP program activities, which are supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia in the scope of international development cooperation.
