The Bern Symposium on Global
Cybersecurity Awareness Messaging

The Bern Symposium on Global Cybersecurity Awareness Messaging will address the development of cybersecurity awareness programs at the national and transnational levels.

The two-day workshop will discuss the assets and relationships that are leveraged to organize and deploy a maximally effective national cybersecurity awareness campaign.

The Symposium's objective is to establish a global strategy for transnational cybersecurity messaging, with assets deployed as a form of cybercrime prevention regimen, and maintained as an instrument of behavioral management subject to the same rigor as any other kind of public health measure.

Join us and be part of the human half of the solution to cybercrime in our time.
