The programme will explore the global challenges and opportunities for cooperation based on common democratic values and shared priorities

You will have a chance to discuss and exchange ideas on countering cyber threats, ICT policy and regulation, public-private partnership, transition to post-quantum cryptography, deployment of artificial intelligence and more.


Main Hall

8:00 - 9:00

We kindly ask all participants to arrive to the Congress Centre – the venue of the conference – at 8:30 am at the latest due to the security check and distribution of the registration badge.

Access to the conference venue requires a valid personalized badge, which can be obtained after the successful accreditation process. Please ensure to collect your badge on the first day of the conference in the morning and remember to carry it with you for the second day of the event.

9:00 - 9:30

9:30 - 10:30

Five years ago, the Prague Proposals marked a new era and served as a blueprint for national and regional approaches to 5G security.  Later endorsed by G7 and QUAD, the Prague Proposals were a significant milestone in promoting a risk-based approach to 5G networks.


The discussion will explore recent developments in ICT supply chain security and the promotion of trusted suppliers in critical infrastructure beyond the telecommunication sector.

11:00 - 12:30

The Russian aggression against Ukraine, including by cyber means, marked a new stage for cyber conflict. At the same, various governments worldwide face increasingly sophisticated and coordinated cyber-attacks from state and non-state actors.


The conversation will explore the issue of comprehensive cyber defense, the importance of international partnerships, and the development of persistent cooperation with the private sector.

12:30 - 13:30

13:30 - 15:00

With the boom of generative AI, the global community seeks ways to address the opportunities and risks of AI, including through the EU AI Act or the recent US AI Executive Order.


The panel will address the impact of AI on the cyber threat landscape, the future of AI regulation, and opportunities for international coordination and harmonization.

15:30 - 17:00

Subsea cables are critical for global connectivity, security, and economy. At the same time, undersea infrastructure faces increasing attempts of sabotage, disruption and cyber-attacks.


The discussion will address growing threats and collaborative efforts to enhance protection of undersea cables from a national security perspective, including risk mitigation strategies.


Conference Room

11:00 - 12:30

Cloud security and data flows are essential for the digital economy and national security. Most recently, cloud security has become one of the key topics for transatlantic cooperation.


The panel will explore various views on cloud security from governmental and industry perspectives and recent developments in emerging cloud frameworks, including the implications of the EU Cybersecurity Certification Scheme for Cloud Services.

12:30 - 13:30

13:30 - 14:00

Presentations by two sponsors of the Prague Cyber Security Conference

14:00 - 15:00

With the forthcoming breakthroughs in quantum computing, current encryption methods used to secure sensitive information will potentially become vulnerable, and the global community will need to develop and migrate to quantum-resistant cryptography.


The conversation will focus on strategies in post-quantum encryption, the challenges of timing and standardization, as well as opportunities for international collaboration between governments, research, and industry partners.

15:30 - 16:30

International law applies in cyberspace. While a significant number of states have adopted a national position on international law in cyberspace, multilateral and multistakeholder discussions on responsible state behaviour in cyberspace have, to some extent, been fragmented.

The panel will address recent developments and existing challenges in ongoing debates, as well as the importance of international cyber law from a policy angle, including in the context of attribution.


Main Hall

8:30 - 9:00

Access to the conference venue requires a valid personalized badge. Please  remember to carry it with you for the second day of the event as well.

9:00 – 10:00

International cooperation is critical in facing persisting vulnerabilities, increasing incidents, and evolving threats to critical infrastructure globally. Governments around the world increasingly partner on joint cybersecurity advisories, including on specific cyber threat actors or the Secure by Design approach.


The conversation will focus on the importance of international partnerships in preparedness for future crises, including information sharing, models for persistent collaboration with the private sector, and building collective resilience across continents.

10:00 – 11:30

With rapidly evolving cyber threats and the need for effective detection, analysis and response, governments introduce or update legislation to better protect critical infrastructure and implement mandatory cyber incident reporting. Yet, there is no universally shared definition of critical infrastructure.


The panel will discuss various existing and emerging approaches to incident reporting in critical infrastructure, ways to build shared situational awareness, and opportunities for alignment and harmonization of these obligations.

11:30 – 12:30

12:30 – 14:00

The global community needs to address the cybersecurity talent shortage. Various strategies to tackle the cyber skills gap and cultivate next-generation professionals are adopted amid the constant evolution of AI and growing digital economy.


The panel will discuss ways to approach long-term, diverse, sustainable cyber talent, specific cyber education programs, and international collaboration opportunities to build a resilient cybersecurity workforce among government and industry representatives.

14:30 – 16:00

Ransomware is a growing threat to national security and the economy requiring a whole-of-government approach and law-enforcement cooperation. In November 2023, governments agreed not to pay ransoms within the International Counter Ransomware Initiative. 


The panel will discuss the evolving ransomware threat landscape, ways to operationalize the commitment not to pay ransoms, effective measures for disruption of cybercriminal actors, and successful examples of international coordination.

16:00 – 16:30

Join global leaders, representatives and experts from the government and private sector, as well as research and academic institutions from like-minded nations.

A set of recommendations on both technical and non-technical risks that States should consider when planning, building, launching and operating their infrastructure.
