APWG Vienna Symposium on Global Cybersecurity Awareness 2017

Vienna, Austria | August 30 - 31, 2017

The APWG Vienna Symposium on Global Cybersecurity Awareness Messaging at the United Nations International Center will address the development of cybersecurity awareness programs at the transnational levels – and the establishment of messaging and measurement instruments that must be deployed to make people part of the solution to cybercrime and ICT risks.

The Symposium’s objectives are the establishment of a global strategy for transnational cybersecurity messaging – and the development of measurement tools and messaging assets deployed as a keystones of a cybercrime prevention regimen maintained as an instrument of behavioral management, subject to the same rigor as any other kind of public health measure.

Toward that objective, APWG has dedicated the entire August 30 program to research on upgrading ICT user behaviors, and measuring them rigorously – as well as the programmatic informing of user user alerting and safety systems. Senior researchers from universities, industry laboratories and other sectors will present their findings on measuring, informing and evolving ICT users’ behaviors. APWG will also convene the national curators of the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. campaigns from Switzerland, USA, Japan and Spain to share their wisdom on the development of their own cybersecurity awareness campaigns.

In 2017 and beyond, APWG seeks to inspire key nations’ governments and private-sector stakeholders, global commercial enterprises and multilateral treaty organizations to adopt scaled approaches to upgrading ICT user behaviors in enduring ways – and to maintain them in public-health models of intervention. At this year’s cybersecurity awareness symposium, APWG and its collaborators will be announcing new resources and tools to inform that effort and, we hope, catalyze it for the long term.

These meetings are hosted at Universität Bern, in the Swiss capital of Bern founded in 1834. Bern is built around a crook in the Aare River. It traces its origins back to the 12th century, with medieval architecture preserved in the Altstadt (Old Town).

The Swiss Parliament and diplomats meet in the Neo-Renaissance Bundeshaus (Federal Palace). St. Lambertus Church and Castle Tower both date to the 13th century.
