ROAD TO CYBERSEC 2020

Nowadays, in the times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to discuss the accelerating digital transformation is more valid than ever before. In the new world, the digital dimension is critically significant in terms of business continuity and the functioning of the state. With this in mind, we decided to enrich the road to CYBERSEC Forum 2020 with a series of consultations with Members of the CYBERSEC Programme Committee in order to discuss selected topics that will eventually become part of the CYBERSEC 2020 agenda.

CYBERSEC 2020 is planned for autumn as a virtual event with the theme Together Against Adversarial Internet. Going online means that CYBERSEC will become more global as there are now no limits to how we can reach out to the cybersecurity community from like-minded countries. Along with the goal of preparing the excellent agenda, our main aim is to also constantly monitor dynamic changes in the cybersecurity landscape. We are convinced that it can only be done with our partners’ support and we hope that you will be able to contribute to the work of CYBERSEC TASK FORCE in the Road to CYBERSEC 2020 meetings series.

The series will be divided into 4 streams: State, Business, Future and Defence. We plan to hold two meetings per month from May to September1.
