Estonia is a small country in Northern Europe, well known as one of the leading countries to implement a fully digital society. In Estonia it is possible to e-vote, sign legally-binding contracts and interact with the government – all using the Internet.

We welcome the 2015 Cyber Security Summer School, where questions regarding Information Security will be investigated: how to keep data safe, how to safely share it, how to anonymise it, what it takes to reverse engineer data, etc.

The experience of Estonia will be used to discuss the benefits, concerns and technical details. We will discuss how we can all live securely in a digital society in the future.
