Join us for the second edition of Balkan Cybersecurity Days! Organized by DCAF in collaboration with partners AKCESK and FIRST, the event will take place from March 20-22, 2024, in Durrës, Albania.

The Call for Speakers for this event is open through February 9th. Interested presenters can learn more at here.

Bringing together cybersecurity professionals from the public and private sectors, the agenda includes a high-level opening, a panel on promoting cybersecurity talent, and plenary sessions in response to FIRST’s call for papers. Days two and three feature technical training sessions.

Every year we make a prediction to the number of vulnerabilities we expect to see published by NVD. We define this as the number published between New Year’s Day in 2023 to New Year’s Eve 2023, which is not the same as CVE’s that begin with 2023 as an identifier.

WHEN: Monday, March 25 through Wednesday, March 27, 2024.

LOCATION North Carolina State University, McKimmon Center 1101 Gorman Street Raleigh, NC, 27606

We are seeking individuals to submit abstracts for talks, panels, birds-of-a-feather sessions. Any interested persons can submit no later than January 31, 2024.
