The annual Fox-IT Summerschool took place on Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 August 2018. This year’s theme was ‘cyber security in and around the house’. The Summerschool is aimed at inspiring participants and making them aware of the (in)safety of objects and applications that we use at home on a daily basis. The Summerschool programme is packed with interactive social engineering and hack challenges, the proceeds of which go to a charity every year. This year, the yield for the Fox-IT Summerschool was €4000. This amount goes to the Free a Girl Foundation, which has been a partner of Fox-IT since April 2018.
