We donated our Security Academy training platform to the SOS Children’s Villages organisation

​​The oldest non-profit organisation in the country, which helps children at risk, will be able to take advantage of eleven different training platforms offered through the AEC Security Academy for free over the course of the next three years.

The SOS Children’s Villages​ organisation manages a lot of sensitive personal data. At the same time, children are one of the most at-risk and most vulnerable groups from the point of view of IT security. The organisation itself takes the issue of cybersecurity very seriously, so we were not surprised when we received an enquiry about the possibility of purchasing one of the AEC Security Academy e-learning courses.

In the context of this request, and in the spirit of the values which are central to AEC as a company, we decided to provide the staff of this non-profit organisation free licences to use all of our Security Academy courses for three years. The offer has been valid since January 2022 and can be used by more than one hundred employees of SOS Children’s Villages.

Our courses are designed in such a way as to allow people who have taken them to pass on the information they have learned, in this case, for example, to families and foster parents of children. This mainly concerns courses relating to management of social networks, using mobile phones safely, logging into online banking securely and recognising phishing and other attacks.

The project providing Security Academy courses for SOS Children’s Villages is one of a number of similar projects which we implement. For example, when the coronavirus pandemic broke out and companies started asking their people to work from home, we launched a new course within the framework of the Security Academy project for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, focusing on the basic rules of working safely and securely from home.

The AEC Security Academy routinely offers its training courses in Czech, Slovak and English to customers on a turnkey basis. The e-learning system is designed to be always up-to-date, as accessible as possible and as efficient as possible. All of the materials, including the respective infographics, are prepared in line with the given company’s environment. Even subsequent testing and checking the course participants’ knowledge is provided by AEC as a tailor-made service.​
