2020 Programme

Important notice:

2020/03/13 – After due consideration and anticipating a lower than expected number of attendees due to the impact of COVID-19 on participants, the organising committee and sponsors have agreed that the Cyber Security Summer School (CSSS2020) will not be continuing as planned on 26 and 27 March 2020. We aim to postpone CSSS2020, but the date and relevant details will be confirmed at a later stage. We thank you for your input and patience thus far, and looking forward to connecting at a later stage. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us (cybersecuritysummerschool@csiro.au).
