Tallinn University of Technology

This year the Winter School will focus on cybersecurity in the transportation sector, especially on the automotive sector. Incidents and attacks in this sector can be widespread, affect large numbers of people and have serious consequences. As a result of technological developments, the sector is moving towards digitalisation and automation - self-driving cars, autonomous ships, drones, etc. Therefore, raising awareness and increasing cooperation and mutual understanding between transportation and cybersecurity experts are particularly important.


The programme will include:

  • OSINT exercise carried out in collaboration with transport organisations
  • Automotive CTF competition hosted by Cyber Talents
  • Tabletop exercise
  • Hacking the TalTech Iseauto
  • Talks by representatives of transport companies
  • Prizes for the winners
