UNTIL CYBERSEC 2019

WHAT IS CYBERSEC FORUM?

Launched in 2015, CYBERSEC is a successful and well-established annual public policy conference dedicated to strategic security aspects of the global technology revolution. It has embraced the need for trust-based, multilateral and cross-sectoral cooperation. As a result, CYBERSEC is not just a conference, it is a thriving inter-national community that combines the knowledge and experience of experts and professionals. CYBERSEC is an unique opportunity to meet and discuss the current issues of cyber disruption and ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity related threats. Our mission is to foster the building of an Europe-wide cybersecurity system and to create a dedicated, collaborative platform for the governments, international organisations and key private sector companies.

CYBERSEC will consist of a series of formats and events targeting a full spectrum of cybersecurity actors and dimensions in an effort to secure the world’s digital DNA in the most collaborative and inclusive manner possible.

PUBLIC POLICY CONFERENCE

CYBERSEC Forum is the first and unique conference of its kind in Poland and one of just a few events devoted to the strategic issues of cyberspace and cybersecurity in Europe.

PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS
