While the Cyber Security Summit 2016 is not open to walk-ins, live-streaming will be available, starting on Monday, September 19 at 2:30PM


The debate on cybersecurity has never been more important. Senior experts on all aspects of cybersecurity will convene at Stanford University for the Munich Security Conference's 4th Cyber Security Summit, hosted by the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies

Are our societies prepared for large-scale cyberattacks on critical infrastructures? How can countries establish joint norms and rules for cyber space? Which steps are necessary in order to stop the digital advance of the 'Islamic State' and other terrorist groups? In how far should data privacy be compromised for effective intelligence work?

Around 140 senior representatives from science, politics, business and the military will debate these and other questions in the course of several panels held over two days in Encina Hall, home to CISAC and FSI. Among the participants are representatives from US and EU authorities, the cyber security coordinators of several European states, numerous business leaders, as well as security experts from various Silicon Valley companies.
