Event Focuses on Cyber Policy

In May, more than 90 cyber experts discussed cyber and security topics during Defence Fair-IDEB 2014 organized in Bratislava, Slovakia. The seminar focused on two main topics: cyber policy, strategies and international cooperation. It brought attention to important security topics and helped maintain networking between cyber experts on the national and international level. The seminar was opened with a speech from Paul A. Schneider, former deputy secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He focused on the vision for cyber, future challenges and international cooperation. A session on cyber policy and international cooperation was opened by Chris Stace, senior project manager, European Defence Agency, who provided an overview of European cyberdefense strategy. A panel discussion on international cooperation with Dr. Radim Polcak, Masaryk University of Brno, and Dr. Miroslav Brvnistan, National Security Authority, Slovakia, followed. The last session focused on cyber forensics and special solutions. Attendees had an opportunity to learn about modern security solutions and future approaches. Representatives of AFCEA student clubs also attended the event, providing a great opportunity to share information between experts and future professionals.
