Security in times of pandemics
and major global events.

The novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has led to challenges and chaos to many aspects of life. It is hard to imagine a sector of society that has not been somehow impacted and will continue to be for an extended period of time. During this period and the recovery period, technology has been a major facilitator for understanding and tracking the pandemics, but also in allowing a level of remote presence for both work and social engagement.

“Work from Home” has become the norm for many. The International Digital Security Forum (IDSF) seeks to bring together international and national leadership and stakeholders in information exchange and collaboration. The goal is to build collective knowledge of lessons learned and to build partnership for pandemic and major event mitigation.

IDSF is supported by major Austrian Ministries and regards its role as an excellent platform for discourse focusing on the following meta-topics:

  • Cooperation between private and public sector
  • Cooperation between public and research sector
  • Methodologies & Tools for LEA´s and Government
  • Technology Acceptance
  • Technology shaping for the society good

The forum consists of both plenary and parallel sessions and is organized as an interactive hybrid event format.
