DiploFoundation is organising a ‘scenario exercise’ as part of the OSCE Chairmanship Event on Effective Strategies to Cyber/ICT Security Threats. The Chairmanship Event is taking place in Belgrade, Serbia on 29-30 October, whereas the exercise is taking place on Friday 30th October.
The training is open to representatives from OSCE participating States as well as representatives from the private and civil sector based in OSCE participating States.
The exercise is aimed at providing a ‘hands-on’ understanding of the practical aspects of OSCE Capacity Building Measures, and at exploring the different competences of stakeholders from the public and private sectors, both on policy and on technical levels. The exercise is also aimed at discussing national, regional and international communication lines between relevant stakeholders to reduce the risks of misperception or tension between States that may stem from the use of ICTs, and to identify potential obstacles and communication gaps that could hinder co-ordination and cross-border cooperation in case of cyber incidents.
The exercise will include a simulation where participants will be asked to explore, review and discuss communication lines which would be normally taken into consideration when responding to a cyber incident.
DiploFoundation is also organising a CyberLab to give workshop participants the opportunity of gaining a deeper understanding of how the Internet works and what some of the emerging trends are. The CyberLab will take place outside of the conference hall.
