CyberSecurityForum 2019

Federal Government in Berlin.



The internet is the nerve system of European social, economic and political life. Today frontier tech - like artificial intelligence, cloud computing, the internet of things, block chain technology, sensors and robotics - are joining legacy online activity like social media and e-commerce to rewire the way we organize information, markets, finances, elections, friendships, even physical spaces.

Against this backdrop, Europeans and Americans are in a daily struggle with an ecosystem of organized crime syndicates, hacktivists, intelligence services, viruses, malicious states, terrorists and rogue hackers.

The Berlin CyberSecurityForum will bring together European, American and international policy makers, legislators, engineers, hackers, civil society, academics and representatives of the business, privacy and security communities to discuss the challenges of today and tomorrow in keeping our digital space secure.
