The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) and the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) welcome you to the 2nd ENISA-FORTH Summer School on Network and Information Security (NIS'09), that they jointly organise. Following the success of NIS'08, this year’s summer school will take place in the Heraklion area, Crete, Greece, on 14-18 September 2009. This year’s theme is "Privacy and Trust in a Networked World". An exciting programme leverages on invited lecturers to cover a range of topics extending beyond pure technological areas to encompass economic, policy and legal issues alike.
Network and Information Security (NIS) has emerged as a fundamental aspect of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and its widespread adoption for improving productivity, learning and leisure. While creating new opportunities for growth in European economy and for improving quality of life for its citizens, constant advances in ICT pose new challenges to NIS, requiring a high-level of alertness, solid understanding of technology and trends, and continuous adjustment of strategic options. Therefore, raising awareness and understanding on the issues involved in NIS is of paramount importance. In this perspective ENISA and FORTH have jointly taken the initiative to set up and support this Summer School. The Summer School aims at providing a forum for experts in Information Security, policy makers from EU Member States and EU Institutions, decision makers from the industry, as well as members of the research and academic community, to interact on cutting-edge and ground breaking topics in Network and Information Security
