Expert Panel: Role of NATO & EU in Increasing National Cyber Resilience

Cyber defence and cyber security are well known terms, mentioned frequently in the media and in “everyday” discussions on international relations and foreign policy. The developments in cyber seem to be taking place faster than most can follow, and faster than most of our defences can be organized. The various measures taken by NATO, the EU, and national governments to anticipate and counter the threats our societies face seem to be doing the job for the most part; but with ever expanding capabilities, there is a need for more coordinated and complementary approaches in order to maintain our resilience in an effective and integrated manner.

To address how competencies are shared by the "triumvirate" of NATO, EU, and National governments; and how the dynamic really works in order to ensure a safe cyber space for all of us, YPFP is proud to host an expert panel with the following leaders in this field, from the different organisations:

  • Christian Lifländer, Head Cyber Defence Section - Emerging Security Challenges Division, NATO HQ;
  • Heli Tiirmaa-Klaar, Head of Cyber Policy Coordination - Conflict Prevention and Security Policy, European External Action Service;
  • Belgian Representative in the Cyber Defence Management Board (CDMB) of the Belgian Ministry of Defence [TBC].

Join us on Tuesday 19 September for an exciting, but above all unique, evening to learn and understand how national cyber resilience is ensured for us all.
