The programme has a focus on e-Governance and Cyber Security lectures from practitioners working in the public and private sectors.

The lecturers will explain how e-Estonia was the target of the first nationwide cyber-attack in 2007 and how surviving this has transformed e-Estonia into a strong cyber-security nation.

Participants will learn about legal aspects of e-governance, the requirements for electronic identity, and how critical information infrastructure is protected in the public sector. From the start-up and e-service creation side, the programme will cover the topics of design process and prototyping, business model validation, and approach lecturers by successful Estonian CyberTech companies.
