International Digital Security Forum (IDSF) Vienna 2023

Following last year’s success forum with over 250 international participants in Vienna and more than 100 speakers from 41 countries, the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology is happy to announce the 3rd International Digital Security Forum (IDSF) to be held from 19. – 21. September 2023 in Vienna, Austria. Organized by AIT with the support of the Austrian Federal Chancellery, the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Federal Ministry of Interior, the  Federal Ministry of Finance, State Secretary for Digitalisation and Telecommunication, and in partnership with the Austrian Security and Defence Industries Group of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Competence Center Secure Austria (KSÖ), as well as in cooperation with international partner organizations, IDSF will dedicate this week to bring together international and national leadership and stakeholders for information exchange and to foster collaboration and build partnership in the context of this year’s conference motto “Digital resilience – the basis for a safe, secure and free society”.

#IDSF23 is created as a physical event and takes place at the Raiffeisen Forum in Vienna. Participation will be possible exclusively on-site in Vienna. In keeping with its tradition, the  conference will be a mix of keynotes from prominent digital security players from around the world and discussion panels with experts from authorities, academia and industry in the context of digital security. Part of the #IDSF23 program is as usual an accompanying exhibition of innovative Austrian SMEs and global companies from the digital sector.

Furthermore and building on last year’s success, the Vienna Centre for Societal Security (VICESSE) and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology are happy to announce their continued collaboration to host a parallel Social-Science Track on the 20th of September 2023 as part of IDSF. For this purpose, the outcome will be a combination of keynotes and panel discussions on the core topic “(De-)Centralisation of Digital Infrastructures”.

The programme of #IDSF23 includes the following session tracks :

  • Responsible Technology Development
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
