WHAT IS CYBERSEC?
PUBLIC POLICY CONFERENCE
European Cybersecurity Forum – CYBERSEC is the first conference of its kind in Poland and one of just a few regular public policy conferences devoted to the strategic issues of cyberspace and cybersecurity in Europe.
The result of the annual CYBERSEC conference is the creation of practical recommendations that increase resilience to cyberthreats, at both micro and macro levels (specific economic sectors, countries, EU as a whole).
Recommendations developed during CYBERSEC will help to strengthen co-operation between the Visegrad Group, Baltic Countries and other countries of Central Europe in protecting cyberspace.
STRONG IMPULSE FOR CYBERSECURITY
Through dialogue oriented and targeted approach to specific challenges, we provide a strong cross-stakeholder impulse for increased awareness and urgency in developing solutions that reach beyond national borders and enhance collaborative efforts.
FOUR THEMATIC STREAMS
Facilitating strategic cross-stakeholder co-operation, the development and implementation of the most important public policies for digitisation and cybersecurity.
Addressing the evolving dimensions of cyberconflicts in Europe, the role of NATO and the need for comprehensive military co-operation.
Providing structured support in the process of identifying challenges and opportunities for both the ICT sector and the global information society and contributing to cybersecurity innovations.
Exploring the various roles of the private sector in crafting regulatory frameworks and developing mature cybersecurity markets.
The key aspects of social, economic and military interactions are being increasingly transferred to cyberspace. This increasing dependence on ICT necessitates the development of a cybersecurity system that involves all stakeholders and puts cybersecurity education in the centre of the debate.
Incidents in cyberspace are an everyday occurrence. Many of them have important consequences in “the real world”. Cyberattacks on critical infrastructure threaten the security of states and millions of citizens. The private sector bears huge economic losses, geopolitical tensions continue to rise at an alarming pace.
Intense geopolitical tensions, extensive usage of ICT systems by terrorist organisations and more frequent and serious-in-consequences attacks on critical infrastructure create the need for Europe to build a comprehensive cybersecurity system.
Strategic approaches to personal data security, privacy and cyberspace sovereignty among the partners of the transatlantic alliance have been following increasingly divergent paths. CYBERSEC will address the vital cybersecurity issues which were discussed during the 2016 NATO Summit in Warsaw.
