Welcome to Cyber Defence & Network Security 2014:
Evolving – Adapting –Defending
The symposium-of-choice for senior Cyber and Network Security Professionals Worldwide
"As more and more state and non-state actors gain cyber expertise, its importance and reach as a global threat cannot be overstated"
James Clapper, US National Intelligence Director
Cyber Defence & Network Security 2014 (CDANS) conference will provide attendees with high-level strategic briefings from 26+ senior international military and cyber experts, as well as valuable and intimate networking opportunities with Heads of CERT, Systems Security, Military IT, Counter Terrorism, and Cyber Crime and Network professionals.
Cyber vulnerabilities will be the single greatest threat to any nation or corporation within the next 10 years. So… the need to secure, adapt and react to these threats is ever increasing. The potential is there to cripple a military force or even to erode a nation’s ability to function as a state.

We are delighted that Mustafa Aydin from BDDK - BRSA (Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency of Turkey) and Raimo Peterson, Chief of R&D Branch, NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence,Tallinn will be delivering unique insight and updates from two very different but uniquely important institutions.
