About NIAS2015 – the program                                                                       

NIAS2015 addresses the latest innovations in cyber security and provides you with business critical insight, best practice, and practical case studies through sessions, exhibits, workshops and much more!

Each interactive and practical one hour session, offers delegates the opportunity to put their skills and knowledge to the test while networking with their peers.

During NIAS2015, you will get the chance to hear about new and existing products, services and solutions as companies take to the stage to demonstrate the capabilities of their information security solutions.

If you want to get a taste of what these talks are like, you can watch videos of the talks on our YouTube channel.Take part in interactive workshops where industry and NATO debate security challenges, innovative ideas and share experience.

NIAS15 will also feature a high-level panel discussion on the NATO Industry Cyber Partnership (NICP), which comes at a crucial point as NATO and the private sector are working together to bolster collaboration in addressing cyber threats and risks.

This year, in the "Give me 5" sessions run during the breaks. Small and medium sized enterprises and start-ups will be invited to present an innovative idea and prove it to the potential future business partners and customers in five minutes.

On top of that, for the first time, this year the organizers plan to stage a "capture the flag" hacking contest where security experts will be given the opportunity to use their vulnerability assessment and network penetration testing skills in a challenging contest/competition.

Many other ideas are currently being worked on to enhance this program; stay up to date and consult the latest agenda here.
