Over the years, HCSS facilitated large-scale action learning for students and young professionals in the realm of cyber security and policy. For instance, since 2015 we have organized Cyber Security Summer Schools on demand of HSD and/or the Municipality and in cooperation with governments (Dutch & Indian) and international organisations such as Europol and NATO.
These schools offer a valuable opportunity for participants to gain further expertise in issues regarding cyber security. Participants have benefited from courses focusing on the Internet and Artificial Intelligence to Blockchain and the Internet of Things. During lectures, students have been taught about topics covering a myriad of disciplines, including engineering, ethics, law and policy. This knowledge is further reinforced by assignments, known as challenges, that students must tackle in multidisciplinary groups. These challenges are offered and judged by our partners, like governments, companies or academic institutions.
