CYBERSEC, one of the top cybersecurity conferences in Europe, held in Kraków

Dodano: 2016-09-27

Between 26-27 September 2016 Kraków is hosting the 2nd European Cybersecurity Forum – CYBERSEC. CYBERSEC is one of the top conferences of this kind in Europe. This year’s edition of CYBERSEC has gathered over 600 delegates from 20 countries along with 120 speakers taking the floor during two days of intensive debates. The aim of this conference is to develop strategic recommendations for strengthening the cybersecurity of the European Union and NATO.

The Kosciuszko Institute, which organised the event, emphasises that Kraków has hosted a gathering of some of the most prominent experts from Europe and other countries around the world. The guests are widely recognised as leaders in cybersecurity solutions. The conference has brought together top experts from the USA, Israel, Canada and other partner countries. Among the speakers who accepted the invitation and confirmed their attendance are: Luigi Rebuffi, Secretary General of the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO); Jamie Shea, NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges; Pierre Chastanet, Deputy Head of Unit Trust & Security in the Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology of the European Commission; Melissa Hathaway, former cybersecurity expert in two U.S. presidential administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama; currently a senior advisor at Harvard University, and Alastair Teare, CEO Deloitte Central Europe.

As with last year, CYBERSEC panel discussions are being held around four familiar thematic streams: State, Military, Future, and Business. As the event organisers declared, the conference also covers new and interesting formats, including sessions focusing on cybercrime.

The State Stream is devoted to facilitating strategic cross-stakeholder cooperation among the countries of Central and Eastern Europe in order to develop a regional cybersecurity system. The experts are also talking about the implementation of the recently adopted Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive.

The Military Stream focuses on issues related to cyber defence capabilities of NATO member states. Discussions will draw upon the conclusions of the July 2016 NATO Summit in Warsaw during which a declaration of strategic cooperation between NATO and the EU in the area of cybersecurity and hybrid threats was made and cyberspace was recognized as an operational domain of warfare. In addition, the experts will discuss the fight against terrorism by means of cyber tools and the methods used by terrorists to communicate and gather information. 

The Future Stream examines the challenges posed by an increasing shortage of cyber professionals. The session participants will also deliberate about promoting and developing innovative cybersecurity products and services as they are fundamental to winning the race and gaining advantage over hackers in cyberspace.

In the Business Stream, the experts will concentrate on creating mechanisms for effective public-private partnerships and the cybersecurity of industrial control systems.

CYBERSEC have brought together key policy makers, representatives of international organisations, expert circles, leading media, and the world’s leaders in the private sector. Concise Courses has honoured the first edition of the event by ranking it among the top five cybersecurity conferences to attend in Europe.
