Annual Kharkiv Security Conference Cyber Resilience in Ukraine: Strengthening Ukraine’s Cyber Defenses

May 13, 2019

Premier Palace Hotel, Nezalezhnosti Avenue, 2

Kharkiv, Ukraine

Please, join the Atlantic Council and Burisma Group at the Annual Kharkiv Security Conference addressing Cyber Resilience in Ukraine: Strengthening Ukraine’s Cyber Defenses on Monday, May 13, 2019 from 09:00 until 12:00 at the Premier Palace Hotel (Kharkiv, Ukraine)

Russia has long waged a hybrid war in Ukraine, using it as a testing ground for operations ranging from disinformation campaigns to cyberattacks aimed at the power grid and other critical infrastructure, as well as its continued military presence in Ukraine’s east. Russia’s cyber aggression has now extended past its neighbors and will require a transatlantic response.

As technology outpaces the development of security measures, the cyber threat against Ukraine and the West will only continue to grow. Moscow’s cyber operations have provoked international concern about the nature of online disinformation, cybersecurity, and technology’s role in democratic discourse.

The Atlantic Council, in partnership with Burisma Group, will bring together a panel of experts to discuss the threat at hand in Ukraine and beyond, as well as Russia’s broader aims.

We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
