Workshop on Low Intensity Cyber Operations – The International Legal Regime (17-18 February 2014)
The event was organised by NATO CCD COE and the University of Tartu, in cooperation with the Baltic Yearbook of International Law, Estonian Foreign Policy Institute and Stockton Center for the Study of International Law at the US Naval War College. It was a unique workshop bringing together scholars from various parts of the world and creating a dialogue between regions that have tended to operate independently rather than cooperatively. The participants came from China, Belarus, Estonia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Slovenia, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Third and last workshop of the series which are sponsored by the “NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme”. This workshop concentrated on the evaluation of the final draft of the "National Cyber Security Framework Manual".
Second workshop in the series of three which is supported by the “NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme”. All three workshops aim to provide a setting conducive to fostering debate on policy, legal and technical issues among a diverse group of experts ranging from academia, the private sector, military and governments. The series is considered a vital input to the overall deliverable of a “National Cyber Security Framework Manual", which will support both NATO member and non-member states in their approach to cybersecurity.
The Vienna roundtable on “National Cyber Security Frameworks” was the first in a series of three workshops supported by the “NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme”. It will be followed by a second meeting in Stockholm (August 2012) and a final meeting in Geneva (November 2012). All three workshops aim to provide a setting conducive to fostering debate on technical and policy issues among a diverse group of experts ranging from academia, the private sector, military and governments. The series is considered a vital input to the overall deliverable of a “National Cyber Security Framework Manual", which will support both member and non-member states in their approach to cybersecurity.
During April 2012, ACT established a draft concept for cyber defence burden-sharing and this burden-sharing concept is still in a staffing process within the nations. ACT together with the Centre is also shaping a framework for cyber forensic analysis. The next step in the process is to examine whether, and if so to what extent, the cyber defence burden-sharing concept can be used for cyber forensic analysis.
The purpose for this workshop was to identify the usefulness of the cyber forensic analysis framework and the relevance and applicability of the cyber defence burden-sharing concept to the cyber forensic analysis framework.
European network and Information Security Agency (ENISA), Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence, Fraunhofer Institute, Bonn University and the German Internet Industry Association (ECO) conducted a joint workshop in Cologne, Germany to address issues related to measurement, detection, tracking of, as well as the defence against botnets. Presentations and papers can be found from the ENISA webpage.
In 2010 the Centre hosted the annual NATO Cyber Defence Workshop which aims at supporting NATO and NATO nations in participating and influencing the process of building a multinational and multidisciplinary framework among allies. The event was jointly organised with NATO Computer Incident Response Capability (NCIRC).
