Background

NATO 2020 states - Responding to the rising danger of cyber-attacks: NATO must accelerate efforts to respond to the danger of cyber-attacks by protecting its own communications and command systems, helping Allies to improve their ability to prevent and recover from attacks, and developing an array of cyber defence capabilities aimed at effective detection and deterrence. Visual Analytics could be part of this array. An important requirement for Cyber defence is improved situation awareness of the cyber environment and again visual analytics is a promising approach.

Objectives

This 3-day specialist meeting will bring together experts and practitioners from NATO member military agencies along with industry leaders and academic visionaries to present and discuss the state-of-the-art developments and hard challenges in cyber security and the application and exploration of visual analytics in cyber defence. The meeting will result in a raised awareness of our common efforts and the development of collaborative opportunities.

Topics

The topics will include but not be limited to: - Cyber defence - Current challenges in cyber security - Cyber situational awareness - Visual Analytics in cyber security - Intelligence for Cyber security - Cyber Command and Control - Case studies - Decision support - Evaluation measure - Network analysis and monitoring etc.
