Today, the very act of connecting to the outside world exponentially increases persons’ or organizations’ risks of cyber-attack. Hackers steel over 5 million data records every day, 73 per cent of them is targeting people’s identity. The urgency is increasing, as these numbers grew by 255 percent compared only to the last year. According to Eurobarometer, 80 percent of European companies experienced at least one cybersecurity incident only in 2017. Over 50 percent of all crimes committed in the EU Member States are cybercrime.

Two panel discussion organized under the Hashtag 4 Cybersecurity project aims to provide floor for discussion about current challenges and solutions for cyber-security related threats on three levels and about three actors: in Slovakia, in the context of the European and Trans-Atlantic security; and amongst the policy, business and users representatives.
