The International Cyber Center at GMU and CERT-Hungary are jointly organizing the Third Workshop on Cyber Security and Global Affairs. This program will take an interdisciplinary view of cyber security and related global issues. We will have two types of sessions – plenary sessions and break-out sessions. The plenary presentations will involve a mix of invited speakers and active discussion among the attendees. The program is structured to facilitate participant interaction. We plan on a session which will facilitate interaction in small groups. Except for the break-out sessions there will be no parallel sessions.
The Budapest location and timing is of particular importance given the key role of Hungary in the EU in the first half of 2011. During the Hungarian Presidency key emphasis has been placed on the Cyber Security aspects with several sponsored workshops and conferences. Our workshop will build on the experience gathered during these events and will address via selected high-profile professional specific target groups involved in cyber security all around the world.
The meetings will be held at the DBH Group office in Budapest, Hungary. The office is located at H1117 Gábor Dénes u. 2. Infopark D, Budapest.
Who should attend
We invite participation of students, faculty, corporate executives, senior government officials, and executives from international organizations. This is meant to be an interdisciplinary workshop. Participants with technology, strategy, and law enforcement backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
