1. Description of the LTT Mobility – Short-term exchanges of groups of pupils

The LTT session in Greece was structured in a 5 days program dedicated to the training of the participating teachers involved in the mobility. The program was focused on the cybersecurity essentials and on the basic concepts from this domain, since, nowadays, groups are able to collect and use massive amounts of data, by which they begin to amass power and influence. This data can be in the form of numbers, pictures, video, audio, or any type of data that can be digitized. These groups could become so powerful that they operate as though they are separate powers, creating separate cybersecurity domains. Companies such as Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn, could be considered to be data domains in our cyber world. Extending the analogy, the people who work at these digital companies could be considered cybersecurity experts. Therefore, educators must be the first category of recipients of these specific information in order to transmit to their students basic concepts and ideas regarding the cybersecurity world.
