WHAT IS CYBERSEC?
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is in full swing, giving a strong impulse to the growth of Europe’s innovation-driven economy that can compete with world’s economic superpowers. Let’s start the dialogue together to unlock our potential and use the opportunities ahead.
CYBERSEC’s mission is to foster the building of a Europe-wide cybsersecurity system. Our goal is to create a dedicated collaborative platform for governments, international organisations, and key private-sector organisations.
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.
Facilitating multi-stakeholder cooperation and supporting the creation of public policies for digitisation and cybersecurity.
Enhancing cyber defence capabilities in the face of growing threats resulting from the activities of modern states in cyberspace.
Defining trends, opportunities, and challenges as well as generating cyber innovation and facilitating the growth of the information society.
Determining the role of the private sector in ensuring cybersecurity as well as analysing powerful trends in the market offering cyber products and cyber services.
The key aspects of social, economic, and military interactions are being increasingly transferred to cyberspace. The digital revolution brings conveniences and benefits that enable the implementation of processes of civilizational significance. With the growing dependence on information and communication technologies (ICT), robust cybersecurity will play a pivotal role in this process.
A creeping crisis in international relations, increasing terrorist activity, and hybrid threats pose new challenges to the security of democratic states. Cyberspace is increasingly being used to advance particularistic political goals; therefore, a joint effort to build a strong and effective cybersecurity system is becoming the top priority today.
The dynamic growth of modern technologies urges us to take bold and innovative actions in order to strengthen our security in cyberspace. Ambitious development policies should take advantage of Europe’s technological potential and knowledge generated in R&D centres and competence hubs. The success of this endeavour will hinge upon cross-stakeholder cooperation and effective exchange of good practice in digital know-how.
