Session 2 - Innovation and Standardisation: Delivering effective, future-proofed, cyber security
With billions of devices, sensors and machines connected to the Internet, the attack surface is becoming ever greater. The use of common industry-led standards, certifications and labels, it is argued, is vital in order to achieve the high levels of cyber security necessary for the creation of an effective Digital Single Market.
To what extent will products and services based on innovations such as blockchain, biometrics and machine-learning, shape and inform the future of cyber security, ensure the integrity of the value chain of technology solutions, and ultimately help achieve data-driven security? Are we maximising the role that cloud computing and big data analytics can play in real-time cyber threat detection and management? How effective is encryption and what are the implications of encryption use for businesses that rely on capturing and extracting value from data analysis?
Do cyber security standardization and interoperability initiatives led at EU-level sufficiently support the existing and future needs of the industry? How compatible are these standardisation activities with initiatives undertaken by NIST, the IETF and other regions of the world? How will the contractual PPP concretely address cyber security industrial capacities in the EU and how can the supply of high-level cyber security products become a competitive advantage?

Session 3 - CISO Panel discussion: Cyber Security From the field
Europe’s competitiveness, productivity and the safety of its citizens depend increasingly on the reliable functioning of critical infrastructures such as that now found within the financial services, energy and healthcare industries, to name only a few.
In this session, we’ll ask what cyber security risks are faced by various industries, how incidents are currently managed, and what is required to face future threats. What are the sector-specific challenges, when working with different EU and national regulators, to improve security levels?

Fighting Cybercrime: Challenges and Opportunities
Digital technologies are making networked products and services more secure against cyber incidents, however this is increasingly bringing business and national security and law enforcement agencies into conflict, where access to information deemed vital to the investigation and prosecution of online criminal activity is subject to encryption or differing national jurisdictions and laws.
How can the balance be found between companies having to guarantee data security, privacy to preserve their users’ trust and the ability for law enforcement agencies to monitor and track criminal activities when security concerns arise? How can organisations best engage with law enforcement effectively?
What existing and additional tools and resources can government offer to law enforcement agencies for cyber forensics?
How are police forces co-operating internationally, strategically and operationally, to combat cybercrime networks? Is intelligence on emerging threats shared effectively? What are the limitations of the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime and how can they be overcome?
Should universal norms for cybersecurity be established to limit potential conflict in cyberspace so that events don’t escalate to cyber warfare?
