Former European Capital of Culture in 2007, Sibiu is transforming few days per year in a Cybersecurity European Capital. It is one of the happy collaboration situations in which a private initiative of some enthusiastic organizers enjoy a total support from international institutions, from government organizations and from technology community.
The 4th Edition of the “Cybersecurity in Romania” Congress is organised by the Swiss WebAcademy, in collaboration with Security Brokers International, New Strategy Center, Agora Media Group, and iBusiness.
The Cybersecurity Congress will be held in Sibiu (Hotel Ramada and Hotel Golden Tulip) on September 13th-16th 2016, under the high patronage and in the presence of the Swiss Ambassador in Romania, H.E. Urs Herren.
Like in the precedent editions, the ITU (International Telecommunication Union, UNO-Geneva), is offering the main support in Cybersecurity Congress 2016 by the presence of its cyber-security division and sustaining the presence of many internationally renowned specialists.
The value of the event is demonstrated by the interest of major government organization like the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) – represented by the CYBERINT Center, as well as the General Inspectorate of the Romanian Police (IGPR), the ANCOM (Romanian National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications) and the CERT-RO (Romanian National Computer Security Incident Response Team) which decided to become partners too.
More important European actors accepted to become partners: The Ministry of Security and Economy of the Swiss Canton of Geneva – represented by the Geneva State Police, the center of the Special Telecommunications of the Republic of Moldova – represented by the Cyber Security Center CERT-GOV-MD, the Global Cyber Security Center (GCSEC) of the Italian Posts and the Listeners Institute of Higher Studies for National Defense in Franche-Comté (AR10 of the IHEDN).
Among professional partners, the congress is backed by two powerful associations, the CLUSIS (Swiss Association of Information Security) and its Romanian counterpart, the ANSSI (Romanian National Association for Information Systems Security).
According to the organiser’s concept the Cybersecurity Congress is the only non-technical and non-marketing orientated event in Romania – and one of the few in Central and South-Eastern Europe – in the IT&C security field. The event is addressing to both national and international experts, oriented towards international cooperation and real public-private partnership models of success identified at the global level. Moreover, this co-participation formula is rising the international trends awareness, providing all the necessary information on security threats and data protection measures to be taken by the CEOs and decision-makers.
This formula helped the Congress to grow in quality and internationality, reaching new horizons and being since 2015 promoted as “best practice example” by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The first day of the Congress is dedicated special awareness training offered by specialists in two sessions:
- One awareness training for children and teenagers
- A non-technical security training for CEOs and executive levels.
