WHAT IS CYBERSEC?
Launched in 2015, CYBERSEC is a successful and well-established annual public policy conference dedicated to strategic security aspects of the global technology revolution. Having responded to the need for trust-based, multilateral and cross-sectoral cooperation, CYBERSEC has quickly gone beyond a typical conference format, giving rise to a thriving international community experts and professionals.
Each year, the invited world’s top-class experts urge the conference participants to think outside the box, making each CYBERSEC more innovative than the one before while the Programme Committee guarantees the highest quality of the conference programme and resultant post-conference Recommendations & Key Takeaways.
Today, in times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rapidly accelerating digital transformation puts a stamp on all aspects of our lives, including the ability to maintain business continuity and the functioning of the state.
Technologies are invented to facilitate economic growth, enhance process efficiency, and increase the well-being of society. The principle of security by design should govern the modern product market structure to ensure it is embedded throughout the entire supply chain. Critical infrastructure, necessary for maintaining continuity of crucial economic processes, remains of particular importance in this dimension. Adversarial actions targeting critical infrastructure may have apocalyptic consequences, thus its protection is an absolute priority for each country.
The focal point of the debates in this thematic stream will be the technological development of the military sector and doctrine and its implications for international security and maintaining peaceful, stable relations between countries.
The impetus for this discussion could come from like-minded countries as shared values are usually conducive to reaching a consensus on difficult and complex challenges. Cooperation between the EU and NATO is equally crucial, and the coordination of tools and initiatives is key to ensuring effectiveness in this area.
The history of our civilization has plenty of examples which show that humankind could never fully predict the ultimate impact of newly invented technologies on the economy or adequately weigh their benefits against risks. Similarly, the technologies of the future will also stand as both great opportunities and challenges for humanity in the context of emerging and previously unknown threats. Creators and providers of emerging digital products and services will have to embrace responsibility for protecting the safety of communities from the unintended but malicious and adversarial use of the tools they develop. There is also a particular kind of accountability vested in the public sector for how nations are going to deploy the technologies of the future, respond to challenges and minimise the threats associated with it.
It is widely known that regulations hardly keep up with the fast pace of innovation and emerging technologies. In order to reverse this tendency, the regulation process must be more agile and involve a wide range of stakeholders.
Today, good Internet governance is needed more than ever. We should aim for all adversarial usage of the Internet having high social impact and utilizing disinformation, fake news dissemination or tools to increase surveillance to be curbed. Furthermore, countries from around the world sharing the same vision and values should work together to create tangible solutions ensuring a peaceful and safe Internet ecosystem.
CYBERSEC Global 2020 will rally under the banner Together Against Adversarial Internet because the Internet, one of the greatest inventions of the last century that completely transformed our lives, is rapidly moving us to a new, fully digital world. From the very beginning of the humankind history, each innovation was always accompanied by new threats. New technology enabled both the well-being of societies and the adversarial, malicious activities.
The main topics of CYBERSEC Global 2020 will follow the four traditional CYBERSEC thematic streams. Find out more about them and register for the conference today!
