5th CYBERSEC European Cybersecurity Forum, Krakow – Event: 29-30 October 2019

CYBERSEC is an annual public policy conference dedicated to the strategic challenges of cybersecurity, launched in 2015, a unique in Central and Eastern Europe and one of the top five
cybersecurity events in Europe. Our mission is to build the foundations of mutual trust and translate challenges into n new opportunities for a better tomorrow.

With cyber disruption on the rise, the world is inevitably facing the emergence of new security challenges. They require responsible leadership to advance strategic actions and collaborative efforts of all stakeholders. A further development of our societies and economies will largely depend on whether we can make cyberspace truly secure. Strong confidence in digital public and commercial services is instrumental to build a trustworthy cyberspace. Meanwhile, current trends are alarming.

More and more state actors are developing their offensive capabilities to disrupt information systems of their adversaries, as well as using digital media to wage information warfare, which increasingly puts the foundations of democracy in jeopardy. Furthermore, the likelihood of terrorist activities in cyberspace and increasing cybercrime which generates enormous losses for the global economy complement this rather grim picture.

The EU is strengthening its strategic autonomy. However, to build cybersecurity in Europe it is necessary to maintain close transatlantic relations and enhance regional cooperation. Governments create strategies, policies, standards and rules for cybersecurity, but they cannot forget that their implementation hinges upon close and trust-based cooperation with private sector. And finally, all actors must act with the welfare of every citizen in mind
