The first international cyber security summer school will be held in Estonia next week.

IT experts from the US, the UK and Estonia will investigate information security, and discuss, among other topics, how to keep data safe, how to safely share it and anonymize it.

Speakers will come from Oxford University, Columbia University, UC Berkeley, the University of Tartu and the Tallinn-based NATO Cyber Defense Center of Excellence.

70 PhD students will take part in lectures, practical tasks and group work, with each receiving 5 ECTS credits and a certificate.

The Cyber Security Summer School 2015 will be held next week from Monday to Friday near Tallinn. It has been organised by the Information Technology Foundation for Education in Estonia (HITSA) together with Tallinn University of Technology, University of Tartu and the Ministry of Education and Research.
