ICSSS 2019 in Numbers

From the 25th - 30th August 2019, the fifth edition of the International Cyber Security Summer School (#ICSSS2019) took place in The Hague. This edition was organised by The Hague Security Delta (HSD), NATO C&I Agency, Europol, Leiden University, EY, Dutch Innovation Factory, The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies and other contributing partners. Having such a wide range of organisers enabled the summer school to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and access to talent in order to enhance our digital security.

Challenging Assignments

To introduce the participants into the week and each other, EIT Digital provided an icebreaker event and Euroclear a "cyber security serious game" on Sunday. Throughout the duration of the six days there were other content driven challenges which tested the participants and additionally broadened their horizons of understanding on cybersecurity.
