Northwave Security Bootcamp


Utrecht, Netherlands


5-8 September



the program

In September we’re organizing the first edition of the Northwave Security Bootcamp: a 4-day program during which 20-30 talented students from different backgrounds will come together to challenge their cybersecurity skills, in terms of people, processes, and technology. In small multidisciplinary teams, you will work together to assist a fictional company in their security struggles and potentially even save them from disaster. This challenging assignment will have several focus areas, including security awareness, business security, cyber resilience, crisis management, digital forensics, incident response, and information security management. Moreover, the program will also include presentations from experts on various cyber security related topics and the opportunity to network with students and professionals in the security world.

Are you the upcoming security professional we’re looking for?

Can you translate security problems and solutions into compelling cases for C-level executives? Can you convince executives of the risks and opportunities of cybersecurity?
