U.S. European Command’s Joint Cyber Center (JCC) is hosting a two day event in Stuttgart, Germany where cyber security industry experts and cyber analysts from a variety of governments will come together and discuss a variety of cyber topics as they pertain to Europe. The Cyber domain is widely recognized as a geographically unrestrained domain and cyber events which affect one location often have ripple effects into other locations.
BG Chase, Director of the Joint Cyber Center, states “the cyber security challenges that we all face require awareness, understanding and teamwork” which is why cyber experts from a wide range of security companies are scheduled to attend this highly anticipated event on April 28-29. Discussion topics range from new analytical methodologies on how to detect and attribute cyber events, APT28/Sofacy/STRONTIUM/Pawn Storm operations, The Dukes Operations, Ukraine Cyber events, and other Cyber events that have taken place here in Europe.
The aim of this working group is to facilitate analytical and technical discussions and inform leadership on how to thwart ongoing cyber events affecting operations and exercises in Europe. In addition, the discussions that will take place directly support the agreement signed on 30 November 2015 by Gen. Philip Breedlove, EUCOM Commander and Lt. Gen. Wolfgang Wosolsobe, European Union Military Staff (EUMS) director general, to increase cooperation and enhance security.
