Discussing current and future technical, legal and policy challenges related to cybersecurity

Session description

This is a follow-up session to the WS 5 Cybersecurity: bringing the puzzle together. With the technical, legal, business complexity of the environment, cybersecurity looks like an intricate riddle, which include many pieces - from emerging issues such Internet of Things, crypto-currencies and drones to the ongoing efforts to tackle cybercrime, protect youth in the digital age and maintain international peace and security. International organisations, national governments, academics, civil society, businesses and technical communities are trying to bring the pieces of this puzzle together and figure out who and how and who should regulate and protect the cyberworld. This session was shaped to include all the cybersecurity-related proposals submitted for EuroDIG 2015. The goal of the session is to discuss who and how should address the issue of cybersecurity, how much state intervention is needed, what is the role of the private sector and civil society in this field. The format of the session - discussions with the audience and break-through groups to discuss the "clustered" issues - reflect the complexity of the topic and the need to bring the "pieces" of the puzzle together. Following this format, the session will develop discussions of the WS 5 and will also deal with cross-topic issues that - we hope - emerge during the WS 5 discussions a break-through groups work.


Cybersecurity Security


The format of the follow-up session is built to continue discussing cybersecurity challenges that emerge at the WS5. As a result of the WS5, we expect the break-trough groups to discuss the different "pieces" of the cybersecurity puzzle - for now we call the "cluster" topics. At the follow-up, all groups will come back together to discuss their findings under the main overarching theme "who and how should address cybersecurity issue". Here each group can deliver the results of their discussions, make statements and discuss cross-cluster issues. We are also expecting the opinions and questions from audience (including those posted on twitter and given remotely). At the end our goal is to deliver opinions and suggestions on:

- issues that are already discussed at different fora

- issues that are open and not discussed anywhere and even suggestion in which fora those questions are most convenient to be raised

- issues that we need more understanding about, to build capacities further

- main roles and responsibilities of actors
