ICSSS 2021: Student experiences

From 22 – 27 August 2021, the sixth edition of the International Cyber Security Summer School (#ICSSS21) took place online. ICSSS 2021 hosted a diverse multinational group of 60 students and PhD-candidates during a six-day programme 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 organisations. We asked two students how they experienced the Summer School, this is what they had to say:

''When I found the ICSSS, I was really excited. It offers the opportunity to learn from some very well-known people and organisations in the cybersecurity domain.''
Fantaw M. Negash

''I really believe in the Summer School. The particularity of cybersecurity is that it deals both with policy as well as technical aspects. This interdisciplinary aspect is something that the Summer School really focuses on.''
