This is a major European Cybersecurity Conference and one that I actually spoke back in 2015! It’s a huge event with a ton of vendors and I’d say it’s comparable to RSA.

Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, October 1st 2020, or created by us.
The International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) has established itself as the benchmark event in Europe in terms of digital security and trust. Its originality is to combine: a FORUM promoting reflection and exchange within the European cybersecurity ecosystem and a SALON dedicated to meetings between buyers and suppliers of cybersecurity solutions.
The International Cybersecurity Forum, a place of open debates, welcomed in 2021 more than 450 speakers, through 4 plenary sessions, 33 round tables, 24 conferences, 35 technical demonstrations, and 15 masterclasses.
Theme of the FIC 2021: For collective and collaborative cybersecurity!
The major health crisis of COVID-19 illustrates the urgent need to strengthen cooperation at all levels. In an interdependent and interconnected world, as in a chain, the level of security of the whole corresponds to that of the weakest link. Faced with systemic risks, whatever their origins, the only valid response is therefore collective and collaborative. Collective, because each actor is not only responsible for his own safety but also that of each of the others, and therefore of the whole. Collaborative, because cooperation and information sharing is essential to compensate for the asymmetry between “attacker” and “defender”.
After a 2020 edition that highlighted the key role played by humans in cybersecurity, the FIC 2021 will therefore focus on the major operational, industrial, technological and strategic challenges of cooperation. To meet them, the FIC undertakes to:
- -Bringing together the ecosystem ever more widely
- -Accelerate the development of the European cybersecurity sector and market by becoming its benchmark marketplace
- -Reinforce the place given to innovation, in particular in terms of artificial intelligence
- -Offer high-level content, always richer and more diverse
- -Further increase its international openness and European foothold
- -Adopt a “phygital” approach allowing to combine physical and virtual realities for an “increased” FIC.
