CyCon 2014 will focus on ‘Active Cyber Defence’. Despite lacking a universal definition, active cyber defence is usually seen as entailing proactive measures that are launched to defend against malicious cyber activities or cyber attacks. Due to the growing dependency on information and communication technologies as well as the increasing sophistication of cyber threats, active cyber defence apparently has become an important issue for both public and private entities. During CyCon 2014 the risks and benefits as well as the technical, strategic and legal implications of (applying) active cyber defence will be discussed.
CyCon 2014 will take place 3-6 June 2014, registration will be opened in early spring 2014.
