From 20 to 25 August 2017 the third edition of the International Cyber Security Summer School took place. 55 participants representing 19 nationalities attended this six-day long event. The group consisted of students, PhD candidates and young professionals with backgrounds in tech, law and policy and a special interest in the topic of Cyber Security. Throughout the programme participants received lectures from high-level experts and professionals in the field on a wide range of Cyber Security related issues.
Besides taking classes and following lectures the participants got to work on assignments provided by EC3, NL DCC, KPMG, PostNL, De Volksbank, Palo Alto Networks and Thales. At the end of the week the results of the group assignments were presented at te Dutch Innovation Factory in front of an audience of organisations and curious outsiders. The group that worked on the assignment on ‘usable security’, provided by Thales, was named for having the best results. They were recognised for their comprehensive approach in combining law, tech and policy in their solution and presenting a working beta version of their face recognition screen locker.
Like last year, the ICSSS received was well received by the participants and organising partners. A survey among participants showed that they scored the ICSSS programme with an average of 8.4 on a scale of 10.
