International Digital Security Forum Vienna: Security in times of pandemics
December 2nd – 3rd 2020

2. December, 2020

Teleworking, distance learning, video meetings – the pandemic has our everyday life firmly under control. Already in spring, home office and lockdown have led to an increase in new COVID-19 scams.

Cybercrime in times of pandemic, terrorism and fake news

“Security in times of pandemics and other major global events” is one of the topics of the first International Digital Security Forum (IDSF), virtual successor of the Vienna Cyber Security Week.

Conference sessions will also address other highly topical issues such as biometrics for counter-terrorism, border management, AI, fake news, situational awareness systems, virtual currencies, and digital resilience and flexibility. The declared aim is to build collective knowledge of the lessons learned and to establish a partnership to combat pandemics and major events.

Global cooperation between government, industry and research

Hosted and organised by AIT and WKO, there will also be space for relevant meta-topics such as cooperation between public, private and research sectors, methods and technologies for public institutions, technology acceptance and technology design for the benefit of society.

The impressive selection of national and international speakers – from government representatives, medical institutions, universities and media representatives to technology giants and security specialists – promises a great variety and depth of information and perspectives.

A virtual exhibition will allow national and international companies to participate in the conference and exchange views with all participants in real time.
