The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) and the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) have organized the 2nd ENISA-FORTH Summer School on Network and Information Security (NIS'09), in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, from 14-18 September 2009. This year’s theme was "Privacy and Trust in a Networked World" with an exciting programme of invited lecturers that covered a range of topics extending beyond pure technological areas to economic, policy, and legal issues.

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.

The 3rd NIS Summer School on “Privacy and Security in the Future Internet”, co-organized by ENISA and FORTH, will be held between 13-17 September 2010 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. The "Future Internet" promises an exciting world: new services, new infrastructures, and new capabilities at all levels. Devices that will automatically exchange information to facilitate users, services that take into account information from different and multiple sources, protocols and systems that are able to handle complex interactions. At the same time, however, concerns about privacy and security increase for individuals, organizations, and the society in general. Where should responsibility be placed and how should solutions be enforced and verified in a world of complex infrastructures and services? The 3rd Summer School on Network and Information Security (NIS'10) will cover topics that address technical, legal, and policy issues in this emerging world.
