Materials, videos and presentations of the last annual conference on cyber conflict, CyCon, are available online for free at https://cycon.org/2016.
CyCon 2016, focusing on the theme of Cyber Power, featured Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves as the opening keynote speaker and a unique panel of cyber commanders from across the world. Professor Martin C Libicki of the RAND Corporation, Professor Thomas Rid of King’s College London, Mikko Hyppönen of F-Secure and Jason Healey of the Atlantic Council and Columbia University were among the speakers.
Each year, over 500 decision-makers and experts from government, academia and industry from all over the world approach the conference’s key themes from legal, technology and strategy perspectives, often in an interdisciplinary manner. The CyCon 2017 topic ‘Defending the Core’ recognises that digitalisation has transformed, often disrupted, our way of life, bringing innumerable social and economic benefits while technological dependencies have altered security risks. Taking place in Tallinn 30 May – 2 June 2017, CyCon 2017 will cover issues ranging from international cooperation, conflict in cyberspace, technical challenges and requirements, to legal frameworks, regulations and standards.
CyCon is organised by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence and adheres to the highest standards in academic research. Proceedings are published as an IEEE publication, as part of a family of the world’s leading technical literature on electrical engineering, computer science and electronics.
