ECSO became an institutional patron of CYBERSEC Forum

26 September 2016, Krakow, Poland
CYBERSEC Forum is an annual public policy conference dedicated to various aspects of cyberspace and cyber security in Europe.

The first edition of CYBERSEC was a great success. It gathered 400 participants from around the world, among whom were political decision-makers, diplomats, experts, business leaders and academic researchers. CYBERSEC  2015 was recognised by Concise Courses as one of Europe's top 5 cybersecurity conferences.

The innovative, target-oriented conception of the conference distinguished CYBERSEC from other events. Our goal is not only to discuss issues, but also to develop stakeholder-specific guidelines, policy recommendations and educational initiatives aimed at integrating the influential stakeholders who play a critical role in Europe's cybersecurity. The formula of the conference enables us to promote multistakeholder co-operation as well as facilitating bilateral talks by many networking opportunities.

CYBERSEC 2016 speakers will include, among others: Anna Streżyńska – Poland's Minister of Digital Affairs, Melissa Hathaway – Cybersecurity expert in administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama; Senior Advisor, Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Bogdan Święczkowski – Poland's National Prosecutor, First Deputy to the Prosecutor General, Gen. Yair Cohen – Former Head of Unit 8200 of the Israel Defence Forces, CEO of PeriTech for Investment and Technology in Cyber Security, Nigel Inkster – Director of Future Conflict and Cyber Security, International Institute for Strategic Studies; Former Assistant Chief and Director of Operations and Intelligence, British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), Luigi Rebuffi – Secretary General of the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO), Jamie Shea - Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Emerging Security Challenges, NATO - UK, Alexander O'Cinneide – Managing Director and Head of Europe for Paladin Capital Group.
