Event Description

This Summit will be studio-produced out of Brussels on November 18th, from 12.00 to 18.15 CEST, and brings together international law enforcement/security, government and industry experts from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss approaches to cybersecurity, exploring cooperation & partnerships, and the role of industry. This is not a typical cyber conference targeted at IT professionals and CISOs; we are targeting business leaders and decisions makers in government and security and law enforcement.
