The Africa Computer Emergency Response Team (AfricaCERT) has completed its first annual Drill to test the capability of Computer Security Incident Response Teams in African economies from 30 June – 01 July 2021.
A Coordination team comprised of AfricaCERT, bjCSIRT (Benin), CERT-MU (Mauritius), EGCERT (Egypt), KE-CIRT (Kenya), KEYSTONE (Tunisia), tunCERT (Tunisia) organized the Drill. CERT-MU chaired this 2021 edition; the scenarios were provided by CERT-MU and EGCERT and supported by SILENSEC CYBER RANGE platform.
Report Launch: “National Cybersecurity Strategies: Lessons Learned and Reflections from the Americas and Other Regions”
11AM EASTERN TIME | 3PM UTC
A National Cybersecurity Strategy is an essential policy tool for any nation’s economic, security, and social well-being. As Latin America and the Caribbean prioritize the development, revision, and implementation of NCS, adopting the best approach at the national level can become a challenge. The Cybersecurity Program of the OAS/CICTE and Global Partners Digital will launch their publication: “National Cybersecurity Strategies: Lessons Learned and Reflections from the Americas and Other Regions” addressing possible approaches to develop, implement, and review an NCS.
Webinar in English, interpretation in Spanish available.
Cybersecurity: How Human Networks Build Cybersecurity Capacity
14:00 – 15:00 UTC
The Internet Society and its members recognize that strengthening human capacity in the field of cybersecurity is highly important to advance a secure and trustworthy Internet. The greater our ability to strengthen human capacity in cybersecurity, the greater our chances to defend organizations, industries and nations from cyber threats and attacks.
Within this focus in mind, the Internet Society organization membership team is inviting you and your colleagues to attend the next member event: "Cybersecurity: How Human Networks Build Cybersecurity Capacity". In this panel discussion we will focus, together with high level experts, on the community building aspects that eventually enhance the cybersecurity posture. We will gather perspective from various initiatives that focus, roughly, on community, industry, and nations.
The panel will be composed of:
- Marjo Baayen: Director, Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE).
- Olaf Kolkman: Principal - Internet Technology, Policy, and Advocacy at the Internet Society.
- Gabriel Chen: Vice Chair, Cybersecurity Special Interest Group (SIG).
- Pascal Steichen: Chairman, European Cybersecurity Competence Network and Centre (ECCC)
The Status of Cybersecurity Capacity in the South African Public Sector
The goal of this webinar is to discuss the state of cybersecurity skills in the South African public sector. The CIO of MICTSETA Mr. Moloti Nkune will lead the conversation by providing a bird's-eye view of the state of cybersecurity professionals in the South African public sector.
Despite numerous cybersecurity academies created by corporate South Africa and universities, the availability of professionals does not match the frequency and intensity of cyberattacks, as well as the complexity of emerging threats and risks. It is predicted that to cope with the magnitude of cyberthreats in both public and private sector, South Africa needs 4 million skilled cybersecurity professionals. Expert panellists will provide insights into how we can bolster our cybersecurity capacity and cyber deterrence to achieve an international level of cyber resilience to protect national critical information infrastructure assets.

Capacity Building – Bridging the Implementation Gap
Once again, Cyber Week is proud to present an event focused on sharing approaches for capacity building and building digital resilience. There is much to learn from existing projects and initiatives but we want to focus the discussion on bridging the implementation gap – how to make sure the work really makes an impact. Hear from leading lights in the community from multinational development agencies, country and project leads in this area and join the discussion on what should be done in order to achieve the desired results.
Tel Aviv University (TAU) is keen to continue the thought leadership in this area as part of it’s own work contributing to the world of cyber capability development, building on the Progress Methodology developed at TAU and the Regional Cyber Resilience Lab.
Cyber Week 2022
Cyber Week is a large annual international cybersecurity event, hosted each year at Tel Aviv University in Israel. Over the last decade, Cyber Week has become internationally acclaimed as one of the top cybersecurity events in the world.
European Cyber Agora
The European Cyber Agora is a multi-stakeholder platform bridging the gap between government, civil society and industry across Europe to shape the European cybersecurity policy agenda and identify European perspectives on global cybersecurity policy debates. It promotes collaboration across sectors including diverse voices and contributes to evidence-based cybersecurity policymaking through research-based and outcome-oriented engagement.
The 11th edition of RightsCon will take place from Monday, June 6 to Friday, June 10, 2022 online and across all timezones.
RSA Conference 2022 | USA
