This programme is designed for highly educated professionals (computer scientists, lawyers, policy makers) with several years of professional experience in and/or affinity with issues in the field of cyber security.

Why study Cyber Security?

The programme of the Cyber Security Academy The Hague (CSA) will teach you to make connections between technical, legal and social scientific aspects of cyber security, so you can come to effective and sustainable solutions for cyber risks and threats. Subsequently, you will be able to contribute effectively to sustainable strategies for digital defensibility and security of society as a whole, including organisations and citizens.

During this programme, you will learn to:

  • Identify the complexities and interdependencies in cyber space
  • Contribute solutions to cyber risks, both from a technological and a policy and administrative approach
  • Relegate cyber threats to acceptable risks

  • Reflect critically on new developments and results of research into cyber security
  • Offer independent contributions to cyber security research

The CSA is an initiative of Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and The Hague University of Applied Sciences and was created with the support of the Municipality of The Hague.

This programme is offered by Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and The Hague University of Applied Sciences and various private partners, under the umbrella of the Cyber Security Academy.
