When You Look into the Black Mirror Who Is Looking Back?

General description

Have you ever wondered how you can trace a hacking attack and what measures you should take to prevent it?

Have you ever wanted to visit the home of Shakespeare's Hamlet?

Have you ever wondered why Denmark is one of the happiest countries in the world?

If the answer to all three questions is "YES!", then look no further! This course is the one that you should apply for.

We are inviting you to Copenhagen to learn about digital forensics, the art of tracking down hackers and finding out how they managed to perform their attack. Furthermore, you will be learning about ways to prevent these attacks from happening and will get hands-on experience with how to deal with these attacks through a series of practical exercises.

Apart from learning about all the fascinating things related to digital forensics and incident response, you will learn and experience Danish "hygge", a magical feeling that has no English translation, get to know more about Vikings, their history and heritage and form memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!
