ICSSS 2022: Student experiences

From 21 – 26 August 2022, the seventh edition of the International Cyber Security Summer School took place in person again! ICSSS 2022 hosted a diverse multinational group of 63 master-students, PhD-students and young professionals during a six-day program that allowed participants to gain deeper knowledge and understanding of cyber security. During the week, participants followed lectures and worked on challenging assignments provided by prominent international and domestic security organizations. We asked two students how they experienced the Summer School, this is what they had to say: 



“Participating in the ICSSS has been of great value in increasing my level of knowledge regarding cybersecurity and building a international network of students, young professionals and companies in this industry. The versatility of the group, not only technical, but also policy and legal, adds an interesting twist to the conversations in the group and provides a broad perspective on current issues related to digital resilience. ICSSS is a must for anyone interested in cybersecurity.”

“For me -as I do not have a strong background in Cyber Security yet- the summer school provides what I was looking for. I got a multifacet overview over the actors in the field and have now a clearer idea what the challenges are.”
