The cyber security week began in Moscow

For the first time, Sberbank holds Global Cyber Week, an international cybersecurity week, in Moscow; it will be held from 17 to 21 June. The first day of Global Cyber Week began on Monday.

The II International Cybersecurity Congress (ICC) is a key event of Global Cyber Week, which is attended by leading experts from around the world. The event has no analogs in the world.

The II ICC will be held at the World Trade Center in Moscow. Sberbank is organizing a similar congress in Moscow for the second time. The first Congress was held on July 5-6, 2018 and gathered more than 2.2 thousand participants representing about 700 organizations from more than 50 countries. Russian President Vladimir Putin took part in the Congress.

Several important events will open Global Cyber Week. This is an International Cybersecurity Practical Conference OFFZONE, designed primarily for young people, and Cyber Polygon, the world's first online cybersecurity training for major international companies.

The press service said, "The participants of the Conference will learn about the most popular research and modern tools of protection firsthand, as well as take part in various competitions in ethical hacking."

More than one and a half thousand participants came to Global Cyber Week on the first day, whose age does not exceed 25 years. Everything can be hacked at the event, even the badges (a name card of each participant).

President of Sberbank German Gref said that Sberbank has created a platform to unite the world community against cyber threats. He believes that the work on creating a secure global cyberspace is at an early stage, and it is necessary to develop the effective international cooperation at the corporate level to successfully combat cybercrime.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said, "We are well aware that it is possible to neutralize cyber threats only together, combining the efforts of the entire international community."

Stanislav Kuznetsov, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Sberbank, is confident that International Cybersecurity Congress will provide an opportunity to exchange views and tested technologies, and to provide for risks in the future.
