Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, October 29th 2020, or created by us.
CyCon, the International Conference on Cyber Conflict, is organized annually by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE). CyCon 2021 will take place from 25 to 28 May 2021 in Tallinn, Estonia.
CyCon 2021’s central theme is Going Viral.
It alludes to the implications of human crises (such as the 2020 pandemic) for cybersecurity and cyberspace. At a more abstract level, it aims to encourage discussions on the impact of fast proliferation and high unpredictability in cyberspace. Whether they concern old threats such as malware or new trends affecting cyberspace such as information campaigns, these phenomena have major real-life implications. We need to acknowledge those, study them, and strive to use them for our common benefit.
It often takes only a small change to produce great consequences in and through cyberspace.
What are the dangers and what are the advantages of this ease of propagation?
What is the role of the human element in advancing or thwarting the process?
How do we maintain the ability to defend ourselves when the physical world comes to a halt? What can governments do in and through cyberspace to prepare for the next crisis?
How can crisis management be helped or hampered by cyber means?
Can law serve as a gatekeeper or is it an obstacle to technology development? Is it bound to always lag behind technological evolution?
What legal and policy costs are we willing to pay when things go viral?
