Forming the backbone of the European economy, digital technologies are transforming the way businesses operate, how citizens connect and exchange information, and how they interact with public institutions and private organisations. – This transformation demands a robust, secure, and resilient digital network infrastructure. With cyber security incidents on the rise in both their sophistication and frequency, often posing both business and reputational risks through negative news headlines and infrastructure compromise, it is vital for all stakeholders of the ecosystem to work together to find ways to secure network and information systems in Europe to improve preparedness resilience, deterrence and defence in an era where both critical infrastructures and democratic processes are under threat.

Gathering leading policy-makers, industry players and high level cyber security and defence experts, this 6th annual Forum Europe conference will explore Europe’s response to a dynamically evolving global risk landscape.

Topics to be discussed will include:
• What are Europe's current and future policy objectives in the field of cyber security?
• Securing the Industrial Internet: responsibilities in the connected ecosystem
• Building effective cyber deterrence and protecting our democratic processes at EU and global level: cooperation, detection, attribution and prosecution
• Highlights on the role of Blockchain, AI and other technologies in Cyber Security.
