Cyber - beyond the horizon
NIAS'17 will be held at the Lotto Mons Expo, in Belgium, on 17-19 October. This year's theme: ‘Cyber - beyond the horizon. Different perspectives, a new way forward' will see participants consider today’s fast-evolving cyber landscape from different viewpoints.
The NIAS’17 website is live and registrations are open. You can now apply for tickets but please hurry – over 1,400 participants join us at this event every year, so we expect to sell out fast.
Key discussions which will be held at NIAS'17 include:
• The Cyber Pledge and addressing new threats through innovative partnerships;
• NATO next generation cyber shield;
• Fast-tracking cyber acquisition;
• Cyber resilience by rethinking public and private partnerships;
• National visions for cyber command implementation .
We’ve also organized a ‘Women in Cyber’ forum highlighting the contribution and role of women in the men-dominated world of IT security, as well topical workshop streams, serious cyber security games, and more, so that you can get the most out of NATO’s premier cyber conference.
Meanwhile, over 70 companies have already signed up to showcase their cyber defence technology and solutions at the Lotto Mons Expo.
We'll continue to announce more high-profile names in the upcoming weeks, so make sure you follow our updates on Twitter.
