EVENTS OF THE WEEK

C&ESAR CONFERENCE

This 26th edition of the C&ESAR conference, organised every year since 1997 by the Ministry of the Armed Forces: a colloqium dedicated to cybersecurity, bringing together governmental, industrial and academic actors. This event has two objectives, scientific and operational, by bringing together experts, researchers, practitioners and decision-makers for a three-day overview of a particular topic. 

RECRUITMENT FORUM

For the 3rd consecutive year, the European Cyber Week entrusted to Eden Forum the organisation of its recruitment forum dedicated to Cybersecurity.
More than 15 actors of Cybersecurity, major groups and local SMEs, will be present to recruit their future talents among the 200 applicants expected.

PARLIAMENTARY

MEETINGS ON NUMERICAL SECURITY

Organised by Garnault Associés, this institutional event (halfday session) will focus on the major stakes in terms of cybersecurity; it will also explore potential solutions to answer to them. 

 

EUROPEAN CHALLENGE THE CAPTURE FLAG

The 4th edition of Capture the flag challenge is dedicated to european students specialized in cyberdefense or cybersecurity

- Online pre selection tests of applicants (48 applicants selected), from October 2019

- Final phase will take place during European Cyber Week in Rennes 

The challenge is co organised by Airbus and Thales and supported by Bretagne Region.

 

RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

The goal of the day "Public and private research and innovation for the digital economy" is to present how public and private actors organize research work in cybersecurity.

The day will highlight new areas of Cyber research and education with participation of research laboratories, actors from industry, PhD students and doctors from Cyber Chairs.

LE CHALLENGE

IA/ CYBER 

Venez tester votre intelligence pour automatiser les tests d'intrusion dans un système d'information. 

Ce défi cyber & IA est ouvert à tous et par équipe. 

Votre mission consistera à développer une intelligence artificielle.

CYBER VALLEYS : Comment les entreprises en verront les bénéfices ?

The European Commission has published its strategic agenda for a digital Europe. One of the most essential pillars to guarantee its welfare, and economic and digital society is cybersecurity.

The European Union (EU) can rely on several ‘hot spots’ with a leading expertise of more than 600 local research and innovation centres and training institutes completed by a close cooperation between end-users and public administrations. In 2017, the European Commission proposed the creation of a European Cybersecurity Competence Centre. Through this milestone initiative, the EU attempts to position its cybersecurity companies as the global leaders in terms of technology and skills.

The inter-regional cooperation and regions themselves are a game changer in structuring the evolving European cybersecurity landscape. How the new regulations can structure the growing EU cybersecurity ecosystem?  What is the role and added value of the maturing regional ecosystems in achieving a European strategic autonomy in cybersecurity?

DEFENSE CONNECT

Dans le cadre de la 4e European Cyber Week, le ministère des Armées (COMCYBER, DGA, DGNUM) propose une conférence « Défense Connect » délocalisée à Rennes le mercredi 20 novembre 2019, de 13h30 à 15h30.

Au cours de cette après-midi, deux tables rondes permettront d’entretenir le dialogue entre représentants du ministère, grands donneurs d’ordre et industrie (start-ups, PME, grands groupes), dans une logique de pragmatisme, de cas d’usages concrets et de démarches agiles.

SMART CITIES

Elected representatives have become aware of their region’s vulnerability to cyber threats. Some initiatives have been put in place in the field of mobility, for example, in order to provide more secure systems. Moreover, the creation of a Strategic Sector Committee (Comité Stratégique de Filière – CSF) in last 2018, dedicated to security industries, contributes to align all of these initiatives on a national level.

After putting into perspective the challenges and threats, two round tables will focus on the applications and solutions, respectively, by detailing a specific roadmap that is as much for “clients” (local authorities) as it is for “suppliers” (manufacturers in the sector). It will be illustrated by many specific examples for the benefit of both economic development and citizens.

Artificial intelligence

and defense

Current advances in Artificial Intelligence, particularly in Deep Learning, have led to significant breakthroughs in many civil applications. These applications are transposable to the world of defense. The recognition and identification detection algorithms used for visible imaging can be used in a broad electromagnetic spectrum (radar, infrared ...). Failure prediction and predictive maintenance applications are directly applicable for maintaining the equipment in operational condition.

These AI-based systems rise new challenges, to guarantee their qualification against decoying during the learning phase or for securing the data processing.

The first conference dedicated to Artificial Intelligence applied to defense proposes to address these issues.

WORKSHOP SILM

It is becoming increasingly important to combine software and hardware aspects in order to take into account new software attacks.

For example, hardware vulnerabilities such as Spectrum or Meltdown can be exploited by purely software attacks.

Such attacks can be executed remotely and do not require physical access to the targeted hardware platform.

It is therefore necessary to study in depth the security of software/hardware interfaces, both in terms of attacks and defences.

This issue is the subject of a thematic semester funded by the DGA and operated by Inria on behalf of all the partners in the research cluster of the "Pôle d’Excellence Cyber".
