The second annual European Cybsersecurity Forum (CYBERSEC) will be held on 26-27 September 2016, in Krakow, Poland. It is organised by the Kosciuszko Institute, in partnership with number of Polish and international entities.
The aim of the Forum is to support and facilitate the development of strategic, cybersecurity-focused decisions for Europe, as well as to build a dedicated platform for co-operation among government representatives, non-governmental organisations, and key private-sector organisations. The Forum also intends to promote practical recommendations that increase resilience to cyberthreats and strengthen cooperation between the Visegrad Group, Baltic countres and other countries in Central Europe. In addition, it aims to provide a strong cross-stakeholder impulse for increased awareness and urgency in developing solutions that reach beyond national borders and enhance collaborative efforts.
The 2016 conference will have four thematic streams: a state stream (aimed at facilitating co-operation in the development and implementation of public policies for digitisation and cybersecurity), a military stream (addressing the evolving dimensions of cyberconflicts in Europe, the role of NATO, and the need for comprehensive military co-operation), a future stream (focused on identifying challenges and opportunities for the ICT sector and the global information society, and contributing to cybersecurity innovations), and a business stream (aimed at exploring the various roles of the private sector in crafting regulatory frameworks and developing mature cybersecurity markets).
