The idea of the project is to provide a concrete insight into the jobs that will one day meet students in the labor market and enable teachers to use the acquired knowledge in classrooms, bringing students closer to the material using concrete examples.
As part of the project support, KING ICT responded to the call for an internship for one teacher / professor to bring closer the nature of the work performed by employees within the company. Thus, the company hosted Romana Bogut, an IT expert and professor who teaches the subject “Computer Networks and Information Systems Security” at the Electrical Engineering School in Zagreb.
KING ICT organized a day in which local experts presented Professor Bogut with practical examples of topics from their field of work – technical experience, the most important technological partners, challenges they face in projects, additional training available for learning and skills and abilities that students would high school should acquire.
Thus, King’s experts touched on topics such as physical data protection, UPS, virus protection, data security, user rights level, encryption, data backup, network traffic analysis, logs, wireless security…
“I am very glad that I had the opportunity to come to KING ICT and hear first hand the things I normally read in manuals or on the Internet. I was most interested in the security of information systems or networks, where experts from King explained to me what it looks like in their work and to the clients they work with, “said Professor Bogut.
