CIOR Seminar 2018

Start: 2018-02-05 | End: 2018-02-07
Location: Bonn, Germany

Cyber Threats – Are we Prepared?

 

Within the safety, security and military environment, cyber is on everyone’s desk these days. However: Do we fully understand what impact cyber-attacks can bring or do to our societies?

 

In the upcoming seminar, held February 5-7, 2018 in Bonn, Germany, we will approach the topic from three different perspectives: military, civilian authorities and private enterprises. We believe these entities are closely linked when it comes to cyber – and they can hopefully learn from each other. We have been able to gather distinguished speakers from all three domains, who are willing to help us getting a better understanding of it. As you possibly know from previous seminars, it is not only about “consuming” information. We have therefore scheduled multiple workshops, including practical examples of cyber-attacks and a table top exercise.
