Outline

As a response to the exponential growth of cyberspace and increasing demand for cyber defence expertise NATO CCDCOE has designed a high-level Executive Cyber Seminar for senior staff, principally OF-6 and higher, or civilian equivalent, primarily in NATO and defence, for whom cyberspace is a new area of responsibility or consideration.

Over the course of a day and a half, participants will be led through a series of themed discussions that will introduce this domain and explore its impact on societies and decision makers.

There will be specific sessions on NATO and EU developments, threats in and through cyberspace, legal aspects including a review on how International Law applies to cyber operations, critical information infrastructure protection, the role of social media etc.

Lecturers include both CCDCOE researchers and external experts, recognised for their expertise in their focus area. Each iteration is tailored to suit the attendees and allows for open Q+A to address any specific areas of interest from the group or individual. In addition, previous participants have valued the mix of expertise represented by other seminar attendees – every seminar is unique due to the discussions, networking and feedback generated by the particular group.
