MARVEL at the CyberHOT Summer School 2022

The Cybersecurity Hands-On-Training (CyberHOT) summer school took place on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th of September 2022 under the auspices of NATO Maritime Interdiction Operational Training Centre (NMIOTC). The summer school was organised by the Security Research Lab of the University of Piraeus and the Microprocessor and Hardware Lab of the Technical University of Crete.

The training program included practical courses with the aim of enhancing the skills of the workforce to meet current and future cyber incidents and challenges. The hands-on training covered topics such as threat and attack monitoring, evaluation strategies, tools & procedures, system administration, network monitoring and attack detection & response techniques.

MARVEL participated in the CyberHOT summer school since several of MARVEL’s objectives are related to the application of security mechanisms in communications and processing. In addition, MARVEL supported CyberHOT and participated with a poster presentation, disseminating the project’s activities to the participants.

Representatives from FORTH discussed the project objectives and several technical aspects and received feedback from researchers and engineers employed in EU CERTs/CSIRTs, organizations, companies, and army/navy. The number of registered participants was 40, while the trainers and organizers were 10. In total, the contacts made exceeded 30, while the majority of them expressed interest in the MARVEL project
