Hybrid CoE co-hosted Comprehensive Security Training Event

Promoting integrated national responses to hybrid threats was at the core, when the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats has been planning its first training activities.

Hybrid CoE co-hosted a Comprehensive Security Training Event on 23-27 October in Helsinki with the Finnish Defence Forces. The event was also supported by the Finnish Security Committee and the National Defence University.

The aim of the course was to bring together some 30 experts and officials mainly from European and North American countries to discuss resilience and preparedness in countering hybrid threats. The course focused on introducing the Finnish Comprehensive Security Concept and its implementation by authorities and other security actors.

From CoE’s point of view, the course acted as a pilot course. Hybrid CoE will evaluate the experiences and assess the possibilities to develop a permanent education module on comprehensive security as means to counter hybrid threats and to build resilience. In the future, Hybrid CoE would like the course to introduce and compare different national models of Comprehensive Approach in countering hybrid threats. Sharing best practises and lessons learned is a good basis on which to improve the resilience of our societies.
