This course has been designed for senior level staff, primarily in NATO and Defence, who are new into post and/or for whom cyberspace is a new area of responsibility or consideration. Over the course of a day and a half, participants will be led through a series of themed discussions that will introduce, explore the developing influence of this domain and its impact on decision makers of today.

As a response to the exponential growth of cyberspace and increasing demand for cyber defence expertise NATO CCDCOE has designed a high-level Executive Cyber Seminar for senior staff (OF-6 and higher or civilian equivalent) primarily in NATO and Defence, for whom cyberspace is a new area of responsibility or consideration.

Over the course of a day and a half, participants will be led through a series of themed discussions that will introduce and explore the developing influence of this domain and its impact on decision makers of today.

There will be an introduction to and basic, but comprehensive, grounding in cyberspace, and a specific session on legal aspects, including the review of how International Law applies to cyber operations, led by the editors of Tallinn Manual 2.0. Industry perspectives on threats and threat actors in cyberspace will be provided by industry experts from Symantec and Leonardo.

Lecturers include both CCDCOE researchers and external experts, recognised for the their expertise in their focus area. Each iteration is tailored to suit the attendees and allows for open Q+A to address any specific areas of interest from the group or individual. In addition, previous participants have valued the mix of expertise represented by other seminar attendees – every seminar is unique due to the discussions, networking and feedback generated by the particular group.

The next, 2nd Executive Cyber Seminar, will be organised by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Tallinn from 27 to 29 November 2017.
