High Level Discussion at the 8. Cisco Public Service Talk 2014 in the Norwegian Embassy in Vienna
Together with the Norwegian Ambassador Bente Angell- Hanson Cisco Austria invited 60 guests to the residence of the Ambassador to a top class expert discussion from industry, politics and education to discuss the current topic of
How can state, economy and society be protected in the era of cybercrime?
- Knut Anders Moi – Director General for rescue and emergency planning at the Ministry of Justice and Public Security in Norway
- Bente Angell-Hansen – Norwegian Ambassador
- Corinna Milborn, Moderator from TV Station PULS 4
- Johanna Mikl-Leitner – Austrian Federal Interior Ministry
- Achim Kaspar – General Manager Cisco Austria
The discussion brought contributions looking at the topic from different angles. It became clear that a strong collaboration between state and industry is the cornerstone. Specialists for the Cyber Crime Competence Centers been built on national levels the Cisco Networking Academy plays a central role supporting educators with newest teaching and learning materials that are freely available on NetSpace – their platform being used in 165 countries around the world.
Ambassador Bente Angell-Hansen is convinced that Information and Education are essential for the fight against cyber crime because prevention can only be successful when the population is informed. The new NetAcad course “Introduction to Cybersecurity” aims at learners of all ages and levels with no prerequisite to open the door to this topic. A topic that central for a society demands to integrate as many women as possible which is our determination. We succeeded to show this intention with the composition of the panel.
“In the context of IT security the protection of civil rights is a major public debate in Norway. It is a delicate matter, to find a balance, on the one hand to protect the society against cyber crime, while respecting the rights of citizens.”
Bente Angell-Hansen, designed Norwegian ambassador
