CYDEF 2020

CYDEF 2020

CYDEF2020 Theme“Power Shift after Corona- Taking life to the cyber domain”

CYDEF is an international conference held by experts from domestic and overseas academic, industrial, and government sectors as well as experts in the defense to deepen discussions and disseminate knowledge about cybersecurity centering on the security domain.

The first of these conferences, CYDEF2018, was held in April 2018. The theme was “Cyber Defense Capability Building” and had 35 speakers, including 17 from abroad and about 200 participants. The second conference, CYDEF2019, was held in October 2019. It had 58 speakers, 21 from overseas, and about 350 participants. The theme was “Assessing National Risk and Establishing Multi Stakeholder Cooperation in Cyber Defense”.

The discussion on the thresholds of organizations, as well as the frameworks of states, contributed to mutual understanding by examining the ways for cooperation between industry, academia and government, defense in different countries.

In this opportunity, in CYDEF2020 we hope to discuss the dramatic changes in the international environment and social conditions triggered by the Coronavirus disaster, which is currently a major threat to the world. Teleworking is being promoted at an unprecedented rate for organizational activities in companies; remote education is being promoted for research and educational activities in schools; and the online presence of government administrative services is accelerating. Moving from a real relationship to a virtual one seems to be an irreversible trend, but what will the future be like?

Rapid changes in society are also a cause for confusion. The large amount of information brought into cyberspace to avoid the coronavirus threat, often without adequate preparation, is a prime target for attacks. How should we deal with such reality?

Furthermore, in the cyber realm, ambiguity is often eliminated, spatial buffers are dissipated, and conflicts are sharpened. Nowadays, as the activities of nations are largely moving to the cyber sphere, relations between nations are becoming tenser. How will that develop in the future?

We hope that this will be an opportunity to discuss such topics with a wide range of experts online, deepen their understanding, and lay the groundwork for further cooperation.
