Since 2015, HSD has successfully organised and hosted eight editions of the International Cyber Security Summer School (ICSSS). The 9th edition of the ICSSS will take place from 18 to 23 of August 2024. During this week, 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 programme

Cyber security issues and opportunities will be explored from public, private, technical, legal and policy perspectives to create a broad and engaging programme. 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 programme will include but are not limited to, artificial intelligence, cybercrime, threat intelligence, operational technology 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, Booz Allen Hamilton, and Accenture.
