Agenda

This edition’s topics include:

The impact of the war in Ukraine on cybersecurity – Russia’s brutal aggression against Ukraine is also taking place in cyberspace.

How the war changed regulations, technologies and mindsets? How can West further support Ukraine?

Increased need for clear and effective public-private partnerships on cybersecurity. In a globalised and digitalised world, complex projects have to be created by private and public institutions.

How to improve private-public partnerships? Where can states and business most support each other?

Growing threat of e-crime to businesses and end users. Reports from cybersecurity companies confirm the continuous threats coming from non-state actors.

Why is e-crime still on the rise? How to prevent it?

Levelling the playing field in the cybersecurity market – we still see significant inequalities in the cyber labour market. How to counter e-exclusion?

How to support women in the cyber security market?

Investment in digitisation projects in the Three Seas region – Developing the potential of the Three Seas region is an imperative for the stability of the European Union.

What projects have the opportunity to make the ‘second lung of Europe’ a digital powerhouse? What should we focus upon?

European Cybersecurity Certification Framework – NIS 2 Directive, Cybersecurity Act, Cyber Resilience Act – they have one thing in common – cybersecurity certification. What’s the EU plan for certification and how it’s influence a European market?

Would it be a chance for European companies to grow or it’s be a market blocker?

Investment in cybersecurity – potential in CEE region – we observe a growing interest of investors in the cybersecurity market, but due to its specificity, the investment potential of this sector is not being fully used.

How to invest in the cybersecurity market? What is the potential of the CEE region?

Building cybersecurity skills – the lack of cybersecurity specialists is a global problem that affects both business and public administration. How can a public-private partnership respond to this problem?

Can business and public cooperate to meet the challenge of the lack of specialists?

Cyber-resilience of critical infrastructure in times of war – Critical infrastructure has been a prime target for hacker attacks for many years, especially those inspired by state actors.

What does cyber defense of critical infrastructure look like in times of war? What operators of essential services should pay special attention to?

SOCs, ICASs, CISRTs – how to manage a cybersecurity on different levels – Due to the complexity of cybersecurity threats, importance for the functioning of the state and business, as well as in connection with the growing number of attacks, public administration and the private sector are looking for more and more sophisticated defense tools.

What is the role of SOC, ISAC and CSIRT in national cybersecurity systems?

5 Thematic Streams

The Russian invasion of Ukraine prompted the international community to provide necessary aid to Ukraine and support the country both diplomatically and strategically. Efforts led by the EU and NATO would not have been possible without reaching common understanding and taking joint action, which ultimately proves that power lies in unity. This applies also to cyberspace, as it has once again turned into a battlefield, underlining the importance of increased resilience and security of the entire cyber ecosystem. Within the STATE stream, our experts are going to discuss the challenges for modern states in times of crisis.
Leading up to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, cyberspace has turned into a battleground of constant hostile attacks and Ukrainian cyber defence actions. This new context keeps unfolding, as ongoing activities in the cyber domain raise questions about the nature and strategic importance of cyber for modern armed conflicts. Despite many predictions, so far we have not brought any large-scale cyberattacks that could be assessed as being a game changer or has a significant strategic impact on the military actions. During the DEFENCE stream we will discuss the critical importance of cyber capabilities in deterrence and defence, so the allies remain united in cyberpower 
Advanced digitalization requires the highest possible levels of cybersecurity of physical and virtual components of digital infrastructure and applied technologies that build and support the very functioning of our states, economies, and societies. And cybersecurity is a team game – without adequate engagement from governments, companies and the civil society, no country or alliance can ever become a cyberpower. During the BUSINESS stream we will focus on the role and responsibility of private sector in this interconnected ecosystem. 
In a rapidly evolving cyberspace, the trends of tomorrow are swiftly transforming into the realities of today. The overarching idea behind this stream is to shorten the feedback loop between the implementation of modern solutions that have a huge and uncontrolled impact on society, and their evaluation by experts and decision-makers. Therefore, artificial intelligence algorithms that should be implemented to improve the wellbeing of citizens will be discussed, as will the fast-approaching 6G technology and the blur of physical reality with digital reality, which many describe as the future of human-technology interaction. It is a necessity to prepare responsibly for the inevitable arrival of these technologies and to face the questions, doubts and obstacles to their implementation. This year’s FUTURE stream will discuss both future applications of the technologies that already surround us and those that are still emerging. 
The European Union steadily increases its cyber capabilities and openly voices its ambitions to become a global security actor. This process commenced in the last decade, which marked an unprecedented shift from a primarily economic (or market) power, towards a more geopolitical entity. The EU emphasizes a vivid need to become strategically autonomous and to step up its role in a security-driven cooperation with NATO. Since 2020, it has outlined a few key institutional and legal developments to be implemented in the following years. From the envisaged establishment of a joint cyber unit, through an adoption of the cyber resilience act, to a new Strategic Compass, the EU gradually unravels its plan to secure its newfound smart power. These steps reflect the idea of what the EU strives to be, but also indicate its potential of becoming a global political and security actor – which will be the focal point if the EU stream.
