Cyberwarfare is by far one of (it not “the”) most fascinating subject-matter we list in our directory of security events. Cyberwarfare becomes more important every year, arguably it is the single most impactful and efficient mode of warfare available to nation-states.

My Recommended Cyberwarfare Conferences 2020 – 2021

European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ECCWS)

2020 Conference Date

June 25th, 2020

United Kingdom

Conference Summary

I understand that the Academic Conferences and Publishing Company (ACPI) organize this Cyberwarfare conference as well as the one listed directly below that I’ve also included because whilst this one is in Europe, the other is in the United States.

Of interest, ACPI Cyberwarfare events are now coming up to being two decades old. Their conferences attract a wide range of interesting delegates including professionals from academia, commerical cybersecurity practitioners, military personnel, and others that have an assocation with community. Of additional interest is the subject matter that the organizers cover including Critical Infrastructure Protection, Incident response strategies, Risk analysis and modeling, Cyber conflict, Cyber terrorism and Psychological warfare. They will also be covering aspects of Digital Forensics.

If you have any association with Cyberwarfare in the coming decade then make sure to keep an eye out for these events.

2020 Event Link (More Info)

Conference Summary

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and SCADA Systems are within the crosshairs of Cybersecurity Warfare military specialists and for obvious reasons.

Whilst this event may not be directly associated with Cyberwarfare I’ve included it nonetheless because I like to spread the geographic spread of events in this Cyberwar events resource, and also because this event might be of interest to those working in APAC and are aware of the existential threat of SCADA hacking as a result of Cyberwarfare offensive attacks.


CS4CA World: Industrial Cyber Security Conference (Virtual Event)

2020 Conference Date

June 30th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
United Kingdom
2020 Event Link (More Info)

Conference Summary

This conference, the CS4CA World: Industrial Cyber Security Conference, is similar to the above except that it is located in London, UK and also has a focus on investigating how to mitigate SCADA/ICS attacks that as previously stated above, might be the result of an offensive military cyber action.

Highly recommended event for those working with SCADA systems in the United Kingdom and Europe.


Cyber Security for Critical Assets (CS4CA) Europe

2020 Conference Date

October 6th, 2020
11 Days Until The Event
United Kingdom
2020 Event Link (More Info)

Conference Summary

The Cyber Security for Critical Assets (CS4CA) Europe conference addresses (and will likely continue to address) the adaptive processes required to fight cyber threats to critical assets.

The critical assets being referred to include verticals like:

  • Energy
  • Oil & Gas
  • Utilities
  • Power
  • Chemical Processing
  • Water
  • Healthcare

Clearly, all of the above will most likely be in the targets of offensive military cyber actions. We’d recommend you learn more about this event if you work in any of the above-listed industries.


National Cyber Summit

The National Cyber Summit is one of the US’s most innovative and forward-thinking cyber security-technology events that we list in our directory.

This conference packs in a ton of value, but essentially the event focuses on education, collaboration and innovation.
