National Cyber Security Summer School 2016
The National Cyber Security Summer School (NCS3) will take place from 22-26 August 2016 in the international city of peace and justice, The Hague, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Delft. The NCS3 aims to attract students who are interested in the field of Cyber Security and would like to be introduced to both the technical and non-technical aspects. No prior knowledge of Cyber Security is required to participate in this summer school. In many ways, this summer school aims at “de-mystifying” the field of Cyber Security, so Participants can get a better understanding of the field.
The NCS3 approaches the field of Cyber Security through the Triple Helix approach, involving Academia, Private Companies, and Government organizations. Cyber Security challenges need to be tackled by all three sectors equally, and the NCS3 will show you what each sector is doing and what their stake in this field is.
Participants of the summer school will compete in groups to formulate advice for the Cyber Security Council of the Netherlands. The groups will be supervised by experts in the field of Cyber Security coming from governments organizations, prominent companies, and leading universities. The main challenge will consist of drafting a (short) policy recommendation and a (brief) presentation. The presentation will be assessed by a judge panel consisting of leading experts in their respective sectors.
The winning team will get the opportunity to present their advice to the Cyber Security Council and will receive a prize by the CSR as well.
