3. Distinguished lecturers
A key component of the Cyber School’s success during the past editions has been the contributions made by internationally distinguished scholars in a number of disciplines. The programme included lectures by PhD candidate Marco Romagna of Leiden University on Hacktivism and its legal and ethical implications, PhD candidate Scott Robbins of TU Delft on ethical questions relating to cyber security, Prof. Elif Kiesow Cortez of The Hague University of Applied Sciences on data protection and the GDPR, Prof. Ponnurangam Kumaraguru of TU Delft on privacy issues in social media, Dr. Alexander Klimburg on cybersecurity, information warfare, and the ongoing disputes in cyberspace and many more. Participants benefited from more than 20 hours of lectures and more than 10 hours of assignments.
5. Professional and social network
Apart from the rich academic experience, participants have the chance to meet with new people, being lecturers, our partner’s representatives or fellow students, and broaden their network. Up to 5 hours on top of lectures were reserved for social activities, including the opening and closing ceremonies with speeches from esteemed guests, such as the Ambassador of India in The Hague, the meet and greet sessions in the beginning of the School where ice breakers take place and visits to our partners’ headquarters, like the Hague Security Delta, TU Delft and The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
