From 25 to 29 September, The Hague is hosting the second edition of the international Cyber Security Week. During more than 40 events, hundreds of experts in cyber security and cybercrime working for governments, businesses and knowledge institutions will share their knowledge, discuss the latest developments and pitch innovative ideas. Together they will look for innovative solutions for one of the biggest challenges in our modern, digital world: how can we guarantee a secure cyber future? Important events at the Cyber Security Week are the Europol-INTERPOL cybercrime conference and the final of the EC-Council hacking competition Global CyberLympics.The urgency of the issue cannot be exaggerated. The hack of the American elections and the recent attack with the WannaCry ransomware are just two examples of alarming actions that can seriously disrupt our digital world and cause huge economic damage. As international data hub and digital gateway to Europe, the Netherlands plays an important role in fighting these threats and optimally guaranteeing the cyber security of our critical infrastructures.Participants in the Cyber Security Week include Europol, INTERPOL, NATO, representatives of various European security clusters from the UK, Belgium, Germany and France, among others, and many big and small businesses that are specialised in cyber security. Through seminars, lectures, workshops, challenges and show cases, the participants and visitors to the CSW will hear the latest 'ins and outs' with regard to cyber security and be invited to share, enhance and apply their knowledge.The Cyber Security Week is an initiative of The Hague Security Delta (HSD), the leading security cluster in Europe, in which businesses, governments and knowledge institutions work together on cyber security innovations and knowledge development, national and urban security issues, the protection of critical infrastructure and forensics. Many events of the CSW will take place at the HSD campus, but other locations in the Hague - the International City of Peace, Justice and Security - will also host events, including the WTC, the Fokker Terminal and New Babylon.The Cyber Security Week will be opened by the deputy mayor of The Hague, Saskia Bruines. Bruines: “Cyber security is one of the biggest challenges of our modern society. International collaboration and sharing knowledge are crucial in this respect. There are also major business opportunities. This is why The Hague has developed itself into an important international centre for cyber security. The organisation of the Cyber Security Week is a good example of this."More information about the programme can be found at: www.cybersecurityweek.nl

Due to the increasing complexity of systems, it is very difficult to manually map the large number of attack paths available to potential attackers. A clear understanding of the threats and vulnerabilities is a prerequisite for an efficient defense. Software tools for threat modeling and attack simulations can today be used to assess the probability that an attacker will reach the various parts of the vehicle system. These tools thus provide a useful evaluation of the security of a system, as well as the effects of system changes on the overall security. However, in the automotive domain, there are currently no tools available for threat modeling and simulation. The purpose of the project is to create a threat modeling and simulation language specifically tailored to automotive IT.The PhD program in Electrical Engineering provides world class quality education, including a large list of graduate courses ensuring an in-depth development of relevant competences and skills.KTH offers an attractive working environment, generous remuneration, as well as other employment benefits.
