Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence to hold Conference on Cyber Conflict
Tallinn February 12, 2010 – The NATO-accredited CCDCOE will bring together 300 cyber security experts on 15-18 June in Tallinn to present and discuss the latest research in the field of computer security and information warfare. Keynote: renown cryptographer and security expert Bruce Schneier.
The aim of the conference is to explore the growing relationship between computer security and national security. All papers are peer-reviewed, selected and later published based on an original and substantial contribution toward understanding this increasing threat. Research will be presented by experts from government, military and academia.
The conference is divided into three parallel tracks: Concepts & Strategy, Technical Challenges & Solutions, Law & Policy. The art nouveau Estonian Drama Theatre is the venue for the event that proceeds from the two successful conferences organised by the CCDCOE in 2009 – Conference on Cyber Warfare and the Legal Conference on International Cyber Conflict. A preliminary agenda will be available on the conference website by the end of February (www.ccdcoe.org/conference2010). Registration opens in March.
CCDCOE is multinationally sponsored and NATO-accredited International Military Organisation, established in 2008, focused on education, consultation, lessons learned, research and development in the field of cyber security. The centre’s mission is to enhance the capability, cooperation and information sharing among NATO, NATO Nations and NATO Partners in cyber defence.
