Chair: Elchin Biren

Artificial Intelligence

Current development in AI makes the prospect of having full functioning Artificial Intelligence soon, a more realistic and tangible aspect. The aim of this group offers the chance of discussing the relationship that cybersecurity and AI will have.



The Education group has both a teaching and learning purpose, meaning that the members can share and develop new and more efficient ways to grow the awareness of cybersecurity. Also, a more solution-oriented part can be present towards helping to strengthen the cybersecurity potential of the educational system, when and where needed.


Smart infrastructures

With the increase in large scale cyberattacks, the critical infrastructure within a country or a region can become a common if not a certain target. Therefore, the Critical Infrastructure group discusses not only potential targets but mitigation as well as prevention options.

Chair: Dr. Alina Matyukhina

Financial Institutions

Financial Institutions must evaluate and adapt to the ever-increasing risk of cyberattacks, as they do represent a common target. Financial Institution group discusses subjects related to cybersecurity and the finance sector.


IoT Devices

IoT devices represent a common target for cyberattacks. As IoT presents more and more challenges in the area of cybersecurity, this group aims at providing a common ground to discuss similar subjects.


Cyber Risk and Law

The relationship between the law and cybersecurity requires a considerable amount of work to clarify and define. In this group, Digital and Cyber Law related topics will be promoted and discussed.

Chair: Yanya Viskovich


Evolving technology affects cybersecurity, and vice-versa. The Technology group aims at having members which can share and discuss the latest trends in cybersecurity, keeping up with the fast-paced technological development.



Be it private healthcare data or just possible IoT healthcare devices, cybersecurity slowly becomes a common part of the healthcare system overall. A group dedicated to Healthcare is, therefore, necessary to communicate and share the newest directions and development.
