Kursaal, Bern
Conference

A key task of the CYD Campus is to facilitate the collaboration of science, industry and government in the area of cyber defence. To this end, the CYD Campus regularly organises public events on cyber topics relevant to defence and security. At this year’s Conference, experts from academia, government and industry will hold talks on key issues in the area of securing future digital infrastructures.

The Conference will be opened by Roger Halbheer, Chief Security Advisor at Microsoft. In his talk, he will discuss the potential challenges of future digital infrastructures, which solutions already exist and where there is still a need for development.

This will be followed by presentations on key topics such as the role of new technologies and developments in the area of communication networks (5G+), the global financial system, the consumption and dissemination of (dis)information and cryptography. Based on selected challenges, Prof. Dr. Florian Tramèr from ETH Zurich will go on to take a critical look at the role that machine learning could play in the protection of future digital infrastructures. The series of presentations will be rounded off with insights into the impact of increasingly complex and globally networked digital infrastructures on the conception and implementation of cyber defence exercises that are as realistic as possible, such as Locked Shields.

The conclusion of the event is dedicated to the international cyber startup scene.  At this point, the three finalists of this year’s CYD Campus Cyber Startup Challenge will present their submitted technology solutions. The winning startup will then be chosen by a jury consisting of experts from the DDPS. The Conference will take place one day after the Swiss Cyber Storm Conference, which will be held at the same location on 25 October 2022.
