Since 2015, HSD has successfully organised and hosted six editions of the International Cyber Security Summer School (ICSSS). After a virtual edition in 2021, we will once again host the Summer School in person in the Hague. The 7th edition of the ICSSS will take place from 21st to 26th of August 2022. During this week, 60 students and young professionals will broaden their knowledge about cyber security and will get the chance to partake in a wide array of lectures and challenges on the most current issues and topics in the field of cyber security.
A multidisciplinary program
Cyber security issues will be explored from public, private, technical, and policy perspectives to create a broad and engaging program. This allows students to not only develop their knowledge of the topics they are already familiar with, but also be introduced to contemporary cyber security topics that they do not yet have any knowledge on, thus widening their professional skillset. Topics covered during the program will include but are not limited to, artificial intelligence, cybercrime, threat intelligence, and cyber risk management. Lectures and challenges will be given by prominent organisations in the cybersecurity industry such as NATO Communications and Information Agency, Europol, Leiden University, Cisco, EclecticIQ, Palo Alto Networks, Group IB, and Accenture.
