Between August 21st and 25th 2017 fifty advanced students, interested in the broad field of cybersecurity, attended the second National Cyber Security Summer School (NCS3). During this week twenty lecturers from public, private and academic institutions took the students through many different aspects of cyber security, viewed from different disciplinary angles.
The CSR Challenge
Part of the summerschool is that participants compete in groups to formulate an advice for the Cyber Security Council (CSR) of the Netherlands. The groups are supervised by experts in the field of cybersecurity coming from governments organizations, companies and universities. The challenge is to draft a policy recommendation and present this at the last day of the NCS3. This years question was how emerging technologies will contribute to the cybersecurity of the Dutch critical sector. A professional independent jury is involved to appoint the winner of the contest. Dick Schoof, National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism and co-chair of the CSR, announced the winning advise of the CSR Challenge 2017: 'The Introduction of Blockchain in Food and Agriculture Sector'. The winning team gets the opportunity to present their advice to the Cyber Security Council and will be offered internship opportunities at one of several organizations.
