iCSS organises internal and external facing events on campus from time to time. The biggest event we run is our annual public engagement event Kent Cyber Security Forum (KCSF). The institute also routinely (co-)organises and hosts scientific conferences, workshops, summer schools and other events. Prior to the establishment of iCSS in 2021, our events were organised by Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security (KirCCS).
