Detailed Outlook:

PANEL 1: BUSINESS PANEL

Information security in a digital world. Challenges and opportunities for citizens, societies and companies.

The social and economic landscape in which European societies live is changing rapidly. The impact of technology – especially that related to information processing and circulation – on geopolitical, social and local processes is constantly growing.

Security of information: its production, circulation, use and management shapes geopolitical processes, conflicts, electoral decisions, as well as the daily decisions of companies and citizens. In the search for information security in a digital world – cyber security – systemic regulations are emerging at EU level, such as the NIS2 Directive or the DORA Regulation.

  • Are such regulations the right way to go, or is this a threat of over-regulation and – at the economic level – a loss of Europe’s competitive position?
  • So, should we focus on systemic solutions or on deregulation and a differentiated perspective in the approach to cyber security?
  • Are we adequately aware of the challenges that lie ahead?
  • Is it enough to rely on technological solutions – such as artificial intelligence – to provide us with cyber security?
  • Or perhaps the answers do not lie in the technological world: perhaps we need to build awareness at the level of individuals, change education programmes and look for simple non-tech solutions?
  • Do we have the resources and talents in Europe to deal with cyber security at each of these levels?
  • Who is accountable and who is responsible for ensuring cyber security?
  • And finally, how to take advantage of the differences and similarities in the approach of these issues (or maybe there are none?) – Luxembourg and Poland.

During the panel, we will try to seek answers to these questions.

PANEL 2: CASE STUDIES PANEL

New regulations. Practical implementation of cyber security and business continuity requirements.

Among the most important regulations that will affect the level of cyber security for companies and public entities are the NIS2 Directive and the CER Directive, which set out the legal and institutional framework to ensure that operators of essential services are more resilient. These are entities that provide services that are essential to conduct societal functions and economic activity in the European market. But has nothing been happening in this area so far? On the contrary.

During the panel, we will talk about solutions that serve the development and security of ICT networks and digital services in Poland and Luxembourg. We will discuss practical, Polish and Luxembourgian examples of activities in securing and managing data, including sensitive data, using the example of the healthcare sector – one of the sectors of essential services. We will reflect on the possibilities of joint use of best practices at the European level.

PANEL 3: RESEARCH AND INNOVATION PANEL

How AI is transforming cybersecurity?

In a difficult global socio-political context, the digital transformation of the economy and society needs to be done in a way such as to protect people, public services and businesses, support democracy and values, and protect our strategic autonomy. Recently the significance of AI in cyber security has escalated alongside the growing reliance of businesses and organizations on technology for their operations, making them more susceptible to cyber attacks. AI and machine learning can be used in various ways in cyber security to detect and respond to cyber threats. Unfortunately, AI and ML have also given cybercriminals new tools to develop more sophisticated cyber threats.

In this context, the work of the research and innovation communities in Poland and Luxembourg is crucial in creating the knowledge necessary to understand and prepare for what lies ahead. This panel should present a forward-looking perspective on some of the challenges and opportunities Luxembourg and Poland face and how collaborative efforts between pour countries could bolster cybersecurity resilience in the finance sector.
