CyCon X: Maximising Effects

30 May to 1 June 2018

In 2018, the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) will be proud to host the tenth anniversary Conference on Cyber Conflict, CyCon X. To celebrate the decennial milestone, members of the cyber security community were invited to shape the focus of the tenth CyCon with their own choice of the most topical cyber security issues, from technical, legal, policy, strategy or military perspectives. The debates and presentations at the event will stem both from original research papers submitted by the academic community and insights offered by other renowned experts in the field. As a result, CyCon X will focus on the topic of maximising effects in cyberspace.

Since the very beginning, cyberspace has provided unparalleled opportunities to achieve effects in novel ways. Today, cyberspace provides a technological platform and an environment for diverse actors, with both positive and negative motivations, to influence everyone and everything. Maximising effects in the cyber realm is important for military, governments, business, media and even private users; but how will this be achieved and what will the consequences be? How will AI, machine learning and big data help to maximise effects in cyberspace? How will international law develop in light of the serious effects of state-sponsored operations that may or may not be hard to attribute? The effects generated through cyberspace, including new instabilities and vulnerabilities, will require new policies, legal frameworks and technological solutions to maximise security.

CyCon X: Maximising Effects seeks to address these and other current key issues, nearly 50 years after the birth of the Internet.
