Geneva Cybersecurity Forum: What are the challenges of cybersecurity in times of war and peace?

Event description

Event date: 13 October 2022, 14:00–18:00 CEST

The Geneva Press Club (Club suisse de la presse) and CyberPeace Institute will jointly host an in-person forum debate, titled What are the Challenges of Cybersecurity in Times of War and Peace, on actions needed against cybersecurity threats today and in the future.

The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred the growth of online activities, and cyberattacks have grown more sophisticated and damaging to all economic actors. Nation states and civilian critical infrastructure are both falling victims. On the other hand, the battlefields of the 21st century have expanded onto cyberspace, with increasing attacks on energy production and distribution, information systems, and transportation networks during conflicts. These developments demand new actions to counter the threats.

Two panels will be held, the first addressing the responsibilities of protecting people against cyberattacks and means to curb cybercrimes, and the second deliberating the importance of cyber weapons in 21st-century conflicts such as the Ukrainian War.
