6th ENISA-FORTH Network Information Security Summer School is approaching fast

The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) jointly organise the 6th Network and Information Security (NIS'19) Summer School, which will be held between the 16th and the 20th September 2019 in Heraklion, Greece.

Published on September 03, 2019

The theme of the Summer School for this year is "Security Challenges of Emerging Technologies", referring to the security challenges and opportunities posed by new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, new Network Infrastructures (i.e. 5G), IoT applications, Machine Learning, etc.

ENISA is dedicated to promoting a culture of security in Europe that will improve the ability of EU Member States to respond to cyber-attacks. It does so by pursuing a strategy of mitigating risks through awareness, studies, reports and position papers on current NIS matters. The Institute of Computer Science conducts high-quality basic and applied research covering a broad spectrum of information and communication technologies including communication networks and cybersecurity.

ENISA and FORTH bring together to this Summer School a distinguished faculty from around the world with the purpose to identify current trends, threats and opportunities against the background of recent advances on NIS measures and policies. Recognising the multi-dimensional facets and intricacies causing changes in the information risks landscape, an array of lectures will cover a variety of key aspects on policy, economic, legal and research matters. By going through a natural evolution cycle, but also by adopting current trends in networking and exchange of knowledge, this year’s Summer School aims at increasing interaction among participants via targeted breakout sessions and trainings which will enhance dialogue and exchange of ideas.

The audience includes policy makers from EU Member States and EU Institutions, decision makers from industry and members of the academic community.

The NIS Summer School offers the opportunity to non-profit organisations/activities in the area of Cyber Threat Intelligence, such as EU Horizon 2020 projects, national academic research and development projects, open source communities, etc., to disseminate their work through this event, by means of posters, flyers, and tool demonstrations.
