With the support from Ministry of Education since 2014, Advanced Information Security Summer School (AIS3) incubated almost 1000 students (including 78 high-school students) from the perspective of practical security technologies. In this speech, the PI of AIS3 project will describe how AIS invited strong speakers and held CTF examination to attract the students following the trends that Taiwan getting a good result in world-class CTF competition. After having reputation, how AIS3 notices the needs of security industry in Taiwan and starts more focusing on defending technology instead of attacking recently. Meanwhile, we will discuss many new activities we provided from AIS3: MyFirstCTF, AIS3 EOF competition, and AIS3 Club which tries to assist the security clubs in university/high school. How to keep innovation and change so that we can incubate talent who can resolve the cybersecurity issues in the future is a critical challenge for AIS3 in the next four years.
