In the framework of the joint EU-Council of Europe CyberEast project, the Cybercrime Programme Office of the Council of Europe (C-PROC) will host a new webinar, on Election interference: attacks on critical information systems.

The event will take place on 4 June 2020, at 12h00 EEST (Eastern European Summer Time: GMT +3).

You can register for the webinar by following this link. Registration is open until 3 June, at 9h00 EEST (GMT+3).

Background information, related resources and the agenda of the event are available on the dedicated webinar webpage, which will be regularly updated before and after the event.

The purpose of this webinar is to identify the current threats to critical information systems which are used to organise, conduct or support election processes.

Information will be provided on legal, organisational, technical and other aspects, pointing out current shortcomings and making recommendations to further ensure protection and deterrence against such attacks.

The webinar is designed to encourage an interactive participation and to facilitate information sharing among participants, discussing relevant experiences, good practices, challenges and opportunities.

Around 200 participants are expected to take part, the webinar being deemed particularly useful for officials from policy makers responsible for cybercrime and cybersecurity, criminal justice authorities (judges, prosecutors, law enforcement agencies), staff from the national CSIRTs, as well as researchers/academia having interest in the subject. This activity of the CyberEast project is open for participation to other beneficiary countries in different regions covered by the C-PROC.

C-PROC implements the CyberEast project, which falls under the EU4Digital initiative, and aims to support cyber resilience of the Eastern Partnership countries.
