ICSSS2017 will host 60 students and PhD-candidates from all corners of the world during a six-day programme teaching them in the latest developments in cyber security.

In previous editions students of 24 nationalities participated in the programme.
Linking Future Talent with Experts
In addition to lectures from the organising national and international institutions, students will also receive guest lectures from other experts. As the NCIA organisers note: "protecting our communication networks and the information on them is more important than ever. Cyber security requires an international approach. This summer school is one route for us to inspire and educate the next generation of cyber security professionals across the international community." The Hague Security Delta underlines the importance of connecting our future cyber security professionals with experts and creating more access to talent, as well as access to knowledge by building communities like these.
