Welcoming Remarks from Special Guests
Ecosystems as a new way of global integration
Technological development further strengthens connections between people, organisations and countries. Governments and businesses are creating ecosystems — large networks of companies and services that spread far beyond national borders and even continents. Such systems are becoming a new gateway to international markets, with local businesses expanding to a global scale.
Will this trend continue? How to ensure the resilience and safe evolution of corporate ecosystems?
Digital state of tomorrow — what will it be?
Technological progress is not only driving the development of businesses but also of entire nations. E-government and online service aggregators are designed to improve the quality of our life. Thus, a metropolis resident can make an appointment with a doctor or consult with a legal adviser through a single-window portal.
What is the future of a digital state citizen? What challenges may the digitalisation of government structures pose? Will the evolution of ecosystems in both the public and private sectors contribute to economic growth?
New world — new currency. How to make the financial system resilient as digital currencies proliferate?
The financial industry is always among the first to embrace innovations. Today we see a rapid spread of digital currencies, which are already accepted for payment by some marketplaces.
What risks does the development of digital currencies entail? Can it affect the resilience of financial institutions? How to protect the financial system against the inevitable threats posed by technological advances?

Combating ransomware — developing an international response
Tackling ransomware has become a priority for both the public and private sectors. As new policies appear in response, the transnational nature of cybercrime requires domestic efforts to be complemented by increased global collaboration.
What international efforts should be prioritised for a coordinated response? How could different stakeholders contribute to combating ransomware within their respective remits? How to harness the expertise of the private sector?
Resilient supply chains — protect people by protecting business
A supply chain connects myriads of processes, involving dozens of independent companies. The security of an entire chain, including its end user, depends on the resilience of each organisation. With a surge in supply chain attacks, the security of every company in the chain and hence their customers is becoming a matter of concern.
How to secure your business and protect your customers?
The role of INTERPOL in fighting the global cybercrime
The world is embracing technological progress with all the opportunities it affords as well as the challenges it brings. And as the world becomes more integrated with technology, the need for a global dialogue on cyber is ever more pressing. In that regard, international organisations like INTERPOL, are the authorities that can bring together and provide the stakeholders with the basis for cooperation and serve as a platform to exchange experience, important data and best practices.
What is the role of INTERPOL in dealing with digital challenges? How does it help states and companies across the globe to fight cybercrime and build better resilience?
The role of the Red Cross in creating a safe cyber space
Just like any other organisation in the world, humanitarian projects are reaping the benefits of technological progress. New opportunities help them to fulfill their primary mission — saving lives.
Being one of the world’s largest humanitarian organisations, the Red Cross, among other things, helps victims of conflict and violence overcome the negative consequences of cyberattacks.
What challenges does the Red Cross face in carrying out its mission? What is the role of cybersecurity in the Red Cross activities? What opportunities does digitalisation bring to ICRC?
International regulations on the web — it’s necessary, but is it possible?
The Internet is borderless, the data flow is enormous, and the number of internet users is approaching 5 billion. However, data and cybersecurity laws and regulations vary across countries which makes global cooperation more complex.
With that in mind, the international community now realises the necessity of unification — but is it possible? How to protect users in the global digital space and to consider the interests of all the parties — countries, businesses and people?
Cyberbullying and beyond — how can we protect children from digital threats?
The Internet has opened unrivaled educational opportunities for children, providing wholesale access to information and entertainment. However, there is also the other side of the coin — cyberthreats. Children are particularly vulnerable to cyberbullying. They are more trustful and often fall victims to phishing and social engineering, encounter online harassment or are exposed to inappropriate content.
How to protect children against online abuse? Can the problem be addressed through state regulation on child safety? How can cooperation between providers and regulators protect children against digital threats?
