Cyber Security Winter School 2020

December 8-12, 2020


This year the Winter School will focus on cybersecurity in the transportation sector, especially on the automotive sector. Incidents and attacks in this sector can be widespread, affect large numbers of people and have serious consequences. As a result of technological developments, the sector is moving towards digitalisation and automation - self-driving cars, autonomous ships, drones, etc. Therefore, raising awareness and increasing cooperation and mutual understanding between transportation and cybersecurity experts are particularly important.

Important update!

The Cyber Security Summer School has traditionally been a hands-on event with students closely working together with mentors on solving problems in cybersecurity. Many events in 2020 have made extensive changes and developed online formats. As the year continues to be difficult and challenging for event organisers, restrictions on gatherings and travel continue to be imposed, so in order not to put anyone’s health at risk we have decided not to move forward with the traditional concept of on-site event.

Nevertheless, we have good news! The event will be held online and we create a new and exciting concept making a remote participation possible.

So, why attend? The programme will include:

  • OSINT exercise carried out in collaboration with transport organisations
  • Automotive CTF competition hosted by Cyber Talents
  • Tabletop exercise
  • Hacking the TalTech Iseauto
  • Talks by representatives of transport companies
  • Prizes for the winners
  • Option to earn 3 ECTS credit points

You can attend from anywhere, just be online!


The event will be held online. All necessary details will be sent to the participants before the event.


The confirmed speakers and mentors to include:
Kristi Ainen, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia
