Vulnerability to cyberattacks, theft, and other threats is as much a personal concern as it is one of national and global security. Ensuring the secure and reliable exchange of information is a critical task and one that the scientific community has been engaged in since the rise of new technologies.
Cybersecurity: Transatlantic Innovation and Strategies is a free, two-day symposium that will enable leading scientists in this field to identify current challenges and to share the results of their research. French and American cybersecurity experts will have the opportunity to come together and discuss the development of new scientific partnerships between the United States and France.
Discussions will focus on privacy and data protection, cryptology and system security, formal methods for security, and the education and training of tomorrow’s cybersecurity scientists. In addition, industry leaders, representatives from innovative start-ups and policy researchers from both sides of the Atlantic will tackle current technology transfer and innovation challenges in this field during a roundtable discussion.
