The leading Central European event, GLOBSEC Bratislava Global Security Forum, hosted a series of events on current cyber-security issues. Experts from the region discussed possibilities of co-operation in this field.

The Central European Policy Institute put together two expert groups, one to produce a report on how to implement the new European cyber-security strategy (CSV4 project), the other on co-operation among the region’s militaries when dealing with cyber-threats (DAV4 II project).

Moreover, a special dinner session featuring the Estonian president Toomas Hendrick Ilves and Baroness Neville-Jones was organised by the Slovak Atlantic Commission in order to discuss the issue at a political level.

The expert groups, composed of Jozef Vyskoč (senior fellow at CEPI, Slovakia), Zsolt Illési (College of Dunaújváros, Hungary), Tomáš Rezek (Association for International Affairs, Czech Republic), Marcin Terlikowski (Polish Institute of International Affairs), Wojciech Lorenz (Polish Institute of International Affairs) and Joanna Świątkowska (Kosciuszko Institute, Poland) were put together thanks to the financial support of the International Visegrad Fund.
