Challenging assignment

During the summer school, participants will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best experts in the field about the latest developments and cutting-edge cyber security technologies that exist today and will work on challenges. A challenge is an assignment that a group of participants will work on. Challenges are related to a current cyber security problem and a problem owning organization (public or private) that is available for questions at set times during the week. For this year’s program, we have room for new challenges from interested and relevant organizations.


Human Resource event

On Wednesday evening 26 August 2020, an HR event will take place where all of the ICSSS partners, and other relevant organizations, can present themselves and career opportunities within their organization. The session will involve presentations and question answering.
