International allure

ICSSS18 will host a diverse multinational group of up to 60 students and PhD-candidates during a six-day programme that allows participants to gain deeper knowledge and understanding of cyber security concepts. During this week participants will learn about the latest developments and the cutting edge cyber security technologies that exist today and work on assignments provided by notable international organisations. In previous editions students of 19 nationalities participated in the programme.


Linking Future Talent with Experts 

In addition to receiving lectures from the organising (inter)national institutions, students will also receive guest lectures from experts. As the NCIA organisers note: "protecting our communication networks and the information on them is more important than ever. Cyber security requires an international approach. This summer school is one route for us to inspire and educate the next generation of cyber security professionals across the international community." Connecting future cyber security professionals with experts from diverse organisations in the field creates valuable knowledge communities and helps in providing access to talent in the field of cybersecurity.
