Registration Open: International Cyber Security Summer School 2021

From 22 until 27 of August 2021, the sixth edition of the International Cyber Security Summer School (ICSSS) will take place. Due to the current situation surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic the ICSSS 2021 will take place online. The registration for the ICSSS 2021 is as of now officially open, and there are only 60 places available! Register before 6 June 2021!


ICSSS 2021 will host a diverse, multinational group of up to 60 Master students, PhD students and young professionals during a six-day programme that allows participants to gain deeper knowledge and understanding of cyber security concepts. Themes that will be discussed during this summer school are behaviour in cyber space, understanding and visualizing the cyber threat landscape, and cybercrime as a service. 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 21 different nationalities participated in the programme.


An international and multi-disciplinary approach

In addition to receiving lectures from the organising (inter)national institutions, students will also receive guest lectures from experts in the field. 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 cyber security.



ICSSS is organised by a consortium of The Hague Security Delta (HSD) partners consisting of NATO Communication & Information Agency (NCIA), Europol EC3, Leiden University, Palo Alto Networks, and The Dutch Innovation Factory at the Municipality of Zoetermeer.
