Digital Warfare,
The allegations of manipulations in the U.S. and French elections have shown the menace to society, and since the worldwide attack using the WannaCry ransomware, digital warfare has come into the public focus like never before.
Yet, the precautions that everyone should take in their everyday behavior, and the protective measures required of businesses and public institutions, are known to few.

Together, we will gain an in-depth understanding of the current threat landscape and challenge best practices securing a safe cyber environment to strengthen democracy.
