Transatlantic Cyber Security:  A Roadmap to Resilience

April 26, Allianz Forum, Berlin
12:00     Registration and Networking Lunch

13:00     Welcome Remarks

Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, Vice President, German Marshall Fund

Izabela Albrycht, Chairwoman, The Kosciuszko Institute

13:15     Discussion 1: Are we Cyber Secure? Taking Stock of Policies and Challenges

Hacks, leaks and fake news are increasingly taking the place of planes, bombs and missiles. The aggressive use of social media by Daesh to lure people into terrorism, or the role of Russia to spread dubious information and cast confusion in our transatlantic societies are just a taste of more to come. The question we now face is how to protect both sides of the Atlantic against hostile cyber power? Which cyber threats deserve our immediate attention? Who are our digital adversaries? Do we have the policies and technological tools in place at national, EU or NATO level to be cyber resilient?


Tobias Lindner, Member, German Bundestag

Arne Schönbohm, President, Federal Office for Information Security, Federal Ministry of the Interior, Germany

15:00     Discussion 2: Facing the Digital Future of Conflicts: What is our Strategy?

Improved connectivity will continue to have a huge impact on conflicts across the globe. Interconnected infrastructure in transport, energy and information and a next generation of smart weapon systems, make us increasingly dependent — and so vulnerable — to online resources. Cyberspace can rapidly become a military tool to bring the effect of conflict to any population on any continent by a mouse-click. How will cyber technology affect future conflicts?  Are our security strategy and defense planning in synch with technological developments? Are transatlantic defense companies researching the right innovations? Is NATO and its member states prepared for collective security and mutual defense in cyber space?


Christian-Marc Lifländer, Deputy Head for Policy at the Cyber Defence Section of the Emerging Security Challenges Division, NATO

Hadas Klein, Cyber Security Program manager, Institute for National Security Studies of Israel

Looking Ahead: Transatlantic Priorities & Opportunities for more Cyber Security

The transatlantic partners need to continue to increase their resilience and deterrence against electronic warfare, espionage and subversion, and how can they find a way to discourage state and non-state actors from striking first. Which policies need to be updated to do so? Which new capabilities need to be created? How can we strengthen transatlantic cooperation in cybersecurity?
