The fifth edition of NIS Summer School on Network and Information Security (NIS’18) will take place from 24th to 28th September in Heraklion (Greece).
NIS Summer School is organized by the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) and the Foundation for Research and Technology (Hellas). The meeting will reunite for four days different players in the sector such as the Public Administration , private sector companies and non-profit organizations.
This edition’s focus is “The Changing Risk Landscape”. The IT sector lives in constant evolution, which poses significant challenges. Due to this, the actors involved must accelerate their reaction time and encourage the exchange of collaboration and information to achieve adequate and effective responses to the challenges that may arise.
With this Summer School, ENISA seeks to promote a culture of cybersecurity in the EU. The aim is to improve the capacity of Member States when responding to cyber-attacks. ENISA follows a risk mitigation strategy by raising awareness and publishing studies and reports on current NIS issues.
