About CyCon

Throughout the years, the annual International Conference on Cyber Conflict, CyCon, organised by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE), has established itself as a major multidisciplinary conference on the technical, legal, policy, strategy and military perspectives of cyber defence and security. In just over a decade, CyCon has also become a community-building event for cyber security professionals, drawing over 600 participants each spring to the Estonian capital Tallinn. CyCon proceedings are sponsored by the IEEE, ensuring the academic online publication and the standards of the research. CCDCOE produces hard copies of the proceedings and the articles will also be published on the Centre’s website.


CCDCOE is a NATO-accredited knowledge hub offering a unique interdisciplinary approach to the most relevant issues in cyber security and defence. The Centre conducts research, training and exercises in four core areas: technology, strategy, operations and law. The heart of the Centre is its international staff from the military, government, academia and industry, representing most NATO allies and partners globally – currently from 34 nations. CCDCOE is also responsible for identifying and coordinating education and training solutions in the field of cyber defence operations for all NATO bodies across the Alliance.

The Centre’s publications and research papers are available online (Cyber Defence Publications Library on the Centre’s website). These include a regularly updated database of national cyber security documents, the International Cyber Developments Review (INCYDER), comprehensive overviews of national cyber security organisations and occasional papers.
