[Update] Read the follow-up report Update from the Cybersecurity Winter School.

The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), in partnership with DiploFoundation and with the support of the Swiss Ministry of Defence, are organising a Cybersecurity Winter School for public officials, corporate sector representatives, graduate students or members of civil society or the media from the Western Balkans or Moldova, in Petnica, Serbia.

The workshop is a component of the Young Faces Network framework of DCAF, which includes a distance learning component, a five-day workshop focusing on policy issues of cybersecurity, and a policy research component. In particular, the programme aims to introduce and analyse technical, legal and political aspects of cybersecurity, as well as critically evaluate policy issues, such as the protection of critical infrastructure, cybercrime and cyber-conflicts. The activities also intend to facilitate the creation of a community of practice in the Western Balkans by identifying, training and providing networking opportunities for young and upcoming leaders from the region.
