One of the main goals of the work of the Centre is to enhance information sharing among NATO, NATO nations and partners in cyber defence. One of the means of doing this is to organise different information sharing and gathering events such as conferences and workshops.
The Centre has been organising conferences each year to bring together experts from different disciplines and discuss recent trends in cyber security. With the exception of 2009, when the Centre held two different conferences, the event is always a mixture of law, policy, strategy and technical talks. Next CyCon will take place 3-6 June 2014. The conference will focus on the technical, strategic and legal aspects of active cyber defence.
Workshops are organised based on our Program of Work and on demand if the project would benefit from this. So far the Centre has conducted joint workshops with ENISA, NCIRC and ACT. Next planned workshops will be Cyber Norms and International Relations (28-29 April), Responsive Cyber Defence (3 June) and Cyber Norms Development (3 June).
