2018, Moscow – Sberbank, with support from Digital Economy ANO and the Russia Association of Banks, will hold the International Cybersecurity Congress (ICC). The event will take place on 6 July 2018 at the World Trade Centre in Moscow.
The congress will serve as an international and interindustry platform for global dialogue on pertinent issues of cybersecurity between representatives of government bodies, global business leaders and high-profile experts in a globalised and digitised world.
The congress agenda will feature panel discussions, roundtables, and speeches by key international cybersecurity experts.
On 5 July, an interactive training session on managing cybersecurity risks will be held as part of the ICC. The training session will let representatives of government agencies, security services, telecoms operators, the financial and banking sector, global vendors of cybersecurity products and solutions, and major cybersecurity professionals check how prepared Sberbank is to tackle critical situations in the cybersphere. It will take place at Sberbank’s Yuzhny Port Data Processing Centre.
“In recent years the growth of cybercrime has become one of the biggest global risks,” commented Stanislav Kuznetsov, Deputy Chairman of Sberbank’s Executive Board. “We are certain that it will only be possible to successfully combat cybercrime if effective cooperation is established internationally at both public and private level and law enforcement is involved. Sberbank has initiated the creation of a platform that will help us join forces to counteract cybercrime and boost global cooperation in this area.”
