From July 10-14, the International Cyber Security Summer School for doctoral students and junior researchers will be held at the Estonian IT College in Tallinn. This year the Summer School will focus on social engineering.

With experts from all faculties, including computer science, law, criminology, forensics and psychology, the Summer School tries to give an impression on how and why social engineering works, how to prevent social engineering and how to find evidence for social engineering attacks.

Cyber Security Summer School 2017 is organised by Information Technology Foundation for Education (Estonia), Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia), Ravensburg-Weingarten University of Applied Sciences (Germany), the University of Adelaide (Australia), the University of Tartu (Estonia), and supported by Estonian Ministry of Education and Research.
