9/27/22

The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE, in its Spanish acronym) are organising this first CyberCamp with the aim of promoting culture and talent in cybersecurity through the organisation of events. To this end, seven workshops and talks related to this topic will be held throughout the academic year, the first of which will take place on the 5th and 6th of October at UC3M’s LeganÚs campus, focusing on employment in the professional cybersecurity sector.

CyberCamp UC3M-INCIBE is an activities programme in which numerous cybersecurity experts from different institutions participate, offering tools and resources to promote talent and raise awareness of the importance of digital security at all levels. Attendance at the events will be free, upon prior booking via the website.

In the first workshop, which will be held at UC3M’s Higher Polytechnic School (EPS, in its Spanish acronym) on the 5th and 6th of October, both teachers from UC3M’s COSEC (COmputer SECurity Lab) research group and professionals from the sector will participate to provide an overview of possible jobs associated with this discipline. In this way, students interested in finding work in this sector can learn about different specialisation profiles in this field and, in turn, headhunters can improve candidate search techniques.

The rest of the workshops for the 2022/23 academic year, which will be held at the EPS on different dates until next July, will focus on topics such as cryptography, cybersecurity risks for public employees, protection against hackers or the development of blockchain technologies, among others. You can view the full programme on the event’s website. In addition, as part of the CyberCamp UC3M-INCIBE, other activities will take place until 2025.
