Short term intensive programme Building Trust in the Information Age

Do you want to deepen your knowledge on cybersecurity issues? Do you want to understand the main solutions for preventing computer attacks? Are you looking for an international experience this summer in a charming context? Then spend two weeks at the University of Cagliari, Italy, with workshops, lectures, study visits, field trips and much more!

The short-term intensive programme “Building Trust in the Information Age” that will mainly focus on cybersecurity is organized by Prof. Giorgio Giacinto, Full Professor of Computer Engineering, coordinator of the MSc programme in Computer Engineering, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Cagliari.


Presenting the most relevant and challenging threats in cybersecurity and the most relevant research and technological solutions to prevent, mitigate and detect attacks. Understanding the impact of usability in the effectiveness of the proposed security solutions and the impact of training and organisational issues.


Nowadays each individual is immersed in a continuous information flow that turns the solid foundations of life of individuals and societies into a liquid state. The benefits of instant communication are antagonized by the evil effects of immaterial communication, as for the human being is quite difficult to weight the value of information. This is quite clear to criminal organizations that found easy and safe to steal virtual money.

The scenario is evolving quite rapidly, and it turns out that security is a quite challenging task both from a technical and social viewpoint. Security enables trust, and trust is the foundation of society.

As much as we rely on computers for information exchange, security issues should be the first concerns to be addressed.
