NeCS project organises a number of courses for the NeCS students. Some of the courses (such as research management or entrepreneurship) are generic while others (e.g., trust, security and privacy management) are specific to cyber-security, the core topic of the project. Courses are conducted on-site and/or on-line, depending on the course provider restrictions. Although, the courses are provided to NeCS students, attendance of some of them are open to researchers outside of the NeCS project (please, check the conditions for the announced courses).

This is a general course introducing to the methods of science and research. The goal is to teach students the fundamental notions and concepts underlying scientific and technological research, with a focus on Information and Communication Technology.
This course introduces the students to general issues of ethics and professionalism as they apply in a cyber security context, as well as the main relevant laws at European level, including data protection (GDPR) and the NIS directive.
Crash Course on Research Funding, Intellectual Property and Start up Creation, from 21 March to 31 May 2017 at Polo Scientifico e Tecnologico Fabio Ferrari, Via Sommarive, Povo (TN) - Italy
The Crash Course is organized in 3 modules on research and technology transfer:
Module 1: Research Funding and Management
Module 2: Intellectual Property Protection and Valorization
Module 3: Start up Creation and entrepreneurship
The University of Kent provided 4 hours of lectures and a workshop, all on the topic of Privacy.
The course is particularly recommended to ESRs in the risk mangement workpackage as it has been taylored to people with a Computer Science Background. Professor WIlliams will also discuss with you key project ideas in terms of security risks.
Just like the evil market of Cybercrime, Digital Forensic is a fast-growing field with a significant demand both for skilled professionals and smart researchers.
Whether we consider “traditional” crime or information security breaches, stalking or cyber attacks, we note that culprits leave behind a huge amount of digital traces, frequently much more digital than physical traces. Following those traces and turning them into court evidence is the business of digital investigators and forensic scientists.
