CyDeS hosted the International Symposium on Cyber Defence & Security on May 13, 2016 at the METU Informatics Institute. The event brought together distinguished guests from all backgrounds: including public, private and academic circles. In this regard, it was very important for achieving CyDeS vision for leading cyber security research by bridging researchers with the companies that are active in the field.
We believe that HackMETU has played an important role in raising awareness on cybersecurity, particularly amongst university students. Highly motivated and driven students passionate about cybersecurity have been exposed to CyDeS and the Institute, and will perhaps consider developing their interest in the topic to the point of being a subject of advanced study and professional career path in the future.
