13th International Conference on Cyber Conflict: Going Viral

About CyCon

Throughout the years, the annual International Conference on Cyber Conflict, CyCon, organised by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (NATO 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 May to the Estonian capital Tallinn. CyCon’s proceedings are sponsored by the IEEE, ensuring the academic online publication and the standards of the research. The NATO CCDCOE produces hard copies of the proceedings and the articles will also be published on the Centre’s website.

CyCon 2021 takes place online, there will be no physical conference due to the worldwide restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This virtual event is an acknowledgement of the work of our authors and the community. We sincerely hope to meet you all at the next CyCon conference at the end of May 2022.


The NATO CCDCOE is the NATO-accredited knowledge hub offering a unique interdisciplinary approach to the most relevant issues in cyber security and defence. The Centre conducts research, trainings 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 29 nations.

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.
