An increasing number of states is consolidating national cyber defense capabilities into specialized, often militarized units. Meanwhile, irregular and terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State (Daesh) are launching cyber-attacks on institutions, businesses and communities around the world. As repositories of strategic or valuable information, private sector entities have experienced an escalation of attacks on their systems. Although private actors face damage of cyber-attacks, they also become more resilient to them, utilizing their accumulated technological know-how to prevent and tackle digital threats. Under these circumstances, this conference attempts to identify a number of security concerns, as well as the necessary resources and skills for the implementation of a collective response to the ever-growing issue of cyber security.

The ISDP-AMS Joint Conference will explore tools, strategies, and institutions that can help state and non-state actors to effectively deal with security threats in cyberspace. By bringing together leading international experts from a range of different sectors and backgrounds, the conference intends to provide participants with a solid basis that can help them understand the real-world implication of cyber security issues.
