Event: Microsoft EU Cybersecurity and Digital Crimes Forum
Check the full agenda of the event here.
The EU Cybersecurity and Digital Crimes Forum was a full day conference on cyber and internet security addressing European policy makers and national security and digital crime specialists.
It has been created as platform for stakeholder debate and information exchange in a year when cybersecurity is top of the policy makers’ agenda. The European Commission has already put forward its proposals for the establishment of a European Cyber Crime Centre and this will be followed by the European Strategy for Internet Security later in the year. These and other efforts aim to improve cooperation between various stakeholders active in this field, as well as reinforce European technical capacities.
Against this background, the Microsoft Forum explores cybersecurity from an industry perspective. It will kick off with reflections on the European economy and the impact of global cyber security challenges, and explore new data on the cyber threat landscape. Our experts will deliver insights into the changing cybersecurity reality, threat evolution and security aspects of the consumerization of ICT (BYOD). In particular, we will discuss enhancements in secure design and cloud security compliance as well as creative approaches to fighting cybercrime.
Amongst the confirmed speakers are Cecilia Malmström, Commissioner for Home Affairs; Jean-Philippe Courtois, President of Microsoft International; Ambassador Gábor Iklódy, NATO Assistant Secretary General; Scott Charney, Microsoft Corporate Vice-President; and Udo Helmbrecht, ENISA Executive Director, as well as other experts in the field.
