The major objective is to establish and promote effective partnerships among the public and the private sectors, associations and other IT&T industry related organizations in the Central and East Europe, Baltic States, Caucasus and Middle Asia region to promote competitiveness, innovation and security.
Background in Brief:

  • The conference, which is held annually, has become a flagship event in the field IT and Cyber Security;

History in Brief:
The conference - region’s one of the most influential events in the field ICT and IT innovations is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. Through the years, the conference has been a vital opportunity for high-profile experts from a diverse background in ICTs and cyber security to establish professional relationships and served as a platform for the formation of international cooperation. In previous events, speakers and panelists included leading experts and decision-makers from sizable number of countries who specialize in various fields of e -industry, as well as colleagues from Governmental and non-governmental institutions.
Participants at our previous conferences have included current and former ministers, heads of security agencies, top-level managers of local and international business institutions, professional experts in the field of ICTs, businessmen and other distinguished guests.

Region should take the benefit of information and communication technologies (ICT) and IT innovation as an enabling tool to deliver economic growth and acceleration in productivity. The event helps us to maximize the economic gains from ICT and seek to identify the critical success factors that policymakers and managers must address to improve the rewards of ICT since economic growth in developed countries is strongly linked to ICT development.
Moreover, Information and Cyber security issues have become a subject of great attention of the conference. In today's high technology environment, public and private organizations are becoming more and more dependent on their information systems. The threats to information systems from criminals and terrorists are increasing. As the experience shows, a lot of cyber security related incidents have been accrued in the world within last years and their number is growing. Georgia has made the first steps towards analyzing the state of affairs in cyber security field and developing policies on how to strengthen it.
