Civil and military cyber skills – are they so different after all?

This workshop looks at the cyber skills and expertise from both civil and military perspectives to discuss the different use cases for building cyber capabilities. The objective is to understand how different or similar the usage for cyber skills across different sectors is, and to compare the needs for capacities between civil and military domains. The basis for the discussion will be the EU CyberNet’s catalogue of pre-mapped skillsets as a unique resource.

EU CyberNet has several use cases to illustrate the implementation of its skillset catalogue; the speakers will introduce it through different examples and value proposals for the experts and stakeholders.

Target audience: People across academia, public and private sectors with interest in cyber skills and capacities building, as well as people who require different expertise/experts for their daily activities.  

Microsoft Quarterly Cyber Threat Intelligence briefing (NATO/EU government officials only)

This briefing is designed for policy-makers and diplomats who are interested in the latest major observations of nation state activity coming from Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. The briefing will also review recent trends and strategic observations around those actors.

Open to NATO/EU government officials only. The organisers reserve the right to review any submitted registrations.

Crafting a Democratic and Responsible Cyber Power

This workshop brings together participants to interactively reflect on what a democratic and responsible cyber power is. After a briefing by an academic expert on cyber power, the workshop will identify its core aims. In the second half, participants will work on a collaborative case study for one of three fictitious case study countries, distributed in advance of the workshop. This will seek to develop recommendations for each country, balancing its competing requirements and priorities. This will provide in-depth discussion and insight into cyber power as well as informing preliminary frameworks for cyber power disseminated through a post-workshop report.

Workshop: Can I Try It at Home?

Industrial control systems are essential to the safe and efficient operation of industrial processes in different sectors. Legacy control systems were isolated and used proprietary protocols, but modern systems increasingly use open standards and are heavily interconnected. Although this has resulted in improved safety and cost-effectiveness of operation, there is concern that these systems are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. This 3 hour long, hands-on workshop will show the weaknesses of these systems and introduce how to exploit them. The event is designed for participants with a basic knowledge of network traffic analysis, packet crafting and Python coding. CCDCOE will provide all necessary infrastructure on site. Further information will be communicated to registered participants by email prior to the event.

NATO Cyberspace Exercises: Moving Ahead

A follow-on event to the CyCon 2021 NATO Cyberspace Exercises workshop which identified key challenges and opportunities for NATO cyber exercise coordination. In the spirit of “Keep Moving,” this workshop seeks to continue forward the valuable input, lessons identified, and recommendations captured from 2021. The goal for this workshop will be to agree on recommendations for NATO leadership on how to achieve effective exercising that goes further to educate training audiences on cyberspace operations. A limited number of seats available to CyCon participants in open registration.
