This year, the Homeland Security Conference will take a point of departure in the New Danish National Strategy for Cyber and Information Security as well as the European NIS Directive. The focus will be on the cyber threats against critical infrastructure and on the pro-active counter measures.

We have gathered 25 speakers who each has 10 minutes pr. presentation, and we will focus on the cyber threats in the six sectors energy, health, financial, transportation/shipping and telecommunications.

Each section has a representative from the authorities (presenting their sector strategy), knowledge institution (presenting potential vulnerabilities in the sector and proposal to counter-measures), and companies (presenting pro-active counter measures) in order to cover all aspects.

Cyber expert John Foley, COPITS will moderate the conference and Minister of Defence Claus Hjort Frederiksen will give the key note speech.
