Cyber Homeland and Defence National Workshop
28 October 2022 | 11:08


Location: ATO MECLİS SALONU, Söğütözü, Ankara 

Date: 31 October 2022 Monday 

Threats, dangers, vulnerabilities, breaches, attacks, disclosures and even wars in cyber environments; despite the policies developed, the strategies and action plans implemented, the inspections and tests carried out, the many standards used, the tools and equipment used, the guides and circulars published and the measures taken, it is increasing day by day. From damage caused by spyware and malware to ransomware, from cyber threat intelligence to deep and dark internet threats, from industrial control system (SCADA, DCS, PLC, etc.) attacks to advanced persistent attacks (APT), from rule-based to artificial intelligence-based threats and attacks, from critical infrastructures to social engineering and virtual fiction attacks, from electricity generation-transmission-distribution networks to smart grids, from sabotage to cyber espionage, from cyberbullying to cybercrime, from behavioral attacks to emotional attacks, many issues that are not given here are more personal, institutional and national threats than ever before. even continues to threaten the unity and integrity of the country. In order to reduce or prevent these, It is necessary to fight with the approach of "There is no line of defense, but a territory of defense and that territory is the whole of the motherland.", to protect our digital lands or assets, and ultimately to defend the homeland together with all parties and stakeholders in cyberspace.

The aim of this workshop is; to bring together field experts, policy makers, sector-institution-university representatives, researchers, students and those interested in the subject; to evaluate the subject in terms of industrial control and energy systems; to address the issue in terms of new professions and supervision; to briefly review the threats and dangers encountered or to be encountered in the growing cyber and deep world; to look into the studies with cyber homeland, cyber security and defense issues; contribute to the definition of a cyber homeland in a way that every digital citizen can understand and contribute to defense; and to share the resulting common thoughts, ideas, outputs and definitions with the public, in short, to contribute partially to the defense of the cyber homeland.

The Cyber Homeland and Defense National Workshop, which we organized jointly with the Ankara Branch of the Chamber of Electrical Engineers and the Ankara Chamber of Commerce, will take place on Monday, October 31, 2022 at the ATO Assembly Hall between 09.30-17.30.
