With increasing connectivity across digital devices, cyber resilience is becoming ever more critical. However, with this greater complexity, it is also becoming harder to achieve. Borders between states, as well as the boundaries between governments and businesses, consumers and retailers, and criminals and victims, now exist online as well as in the physical realm. This presents cybersecurity challenges for states, businesses and individuals.

This conference will review emerging threats in cyberspace, address privacy rights and national security approaches online, analyze business vulnerability to cyber-crime and address what can be done to improve security across commercial and public organisations. The role that international cooperation, technological developments, legislation or voluntary guidelines could play in tackling these challenges will also be assessed.
