Free and Safe in Cyber Space conference


Free and Safe in Cyber Space conference aims at building a constructive dialogue and a critical mass of suitable actors around new dual-use cybersecurity standards and certifications and complaint open technologies and ecosystems that sustainably and radically exceed the state-of-the-art trustworthiness and spur wide economic growth, while increasing public safety and cyber-investigation capabilities.

The event addresses enterprises, financial institutions, mission-critical NGOs and it is extended to the most critical computing of all citizens, targeted cyber-investigation systems, and autonomous systems.
