Second International Conference on Cyber Crisis Cooperation

2nd ENISA International Conference on Cyber Crisis Cooperation and Exercises

23rd -24th of September 2013 in Athens, Greece


Managing large-scale cyber incidents (leading to crisis situations) within a country, but most importantly cross-country, it is necessary to evolve the area of international cyber crisis cooperation. Such cooperation entails various aspects and must be activated at all levels, from the technical, to the operational/tactical, to the strategic/political.

The ENISA International Conference on Cyber Crisis Cooperation and Exercises is a unique high-profile international event that aims to directly support the new cyber-security strategy of the European Union by helping various constituents in their efforts for establishing a more coherent cyber-security policy.

Additionally, the conference is a key knowledge sharing platform for national and governmental level cyber security experts. It will also facilitate debate, information exchange and will offer networking opportunities to both technical experts and executive stakeholders.

In 2012, ENISA organised the first International Conference on Cyber Crisis Cooperation and Exercises. This conference focused on cyber exercises as part of an on-going effort to enhance network and information security and cyber crisis cooperation across the European Union. This international conference brought together a wide range of stakeholders and experts (from crisis managers, public authorities and academia) in the field of cyber crisis cooperation with special focus on the organization, planning and management of cyber exercises.

In 2013 ENISA would like to organise the 2nd International Conference on Cyber Crisis Cooperation, with a focus on other cyber crisis cooperation topics, such as information gathering and common situational awareness, escalation processes and procedures, the cyber crisis management in the general crisis management context, cross-country cyber exercises, means and tools of information exchange and communication etc.

Similarly to 2012 the findings from the conference will be complemented by a state of the art survey and analysis and will be published as a report explaining the major topics on cross-country cyber crisis cooperation, the challenges and recommendations for future work in each area.
