Cyber Polygon

These days, as the digitalisation is gathering pace, ecosystems are more widespread than ever. The interconnectedness between industries and countries is growing, while companies are taking the expansion of their supply chains to a global scale. In this context, the vulnerability of one organisation can undermine an entire supply system. The effects of such incidents can echo throughout the world. Thus, we understand that the resilience of supply networks must be an issue of global concern.

In this environment, the best strategy to safeguard our future is to build up the right skills and to understand the risks involved. This is why Cyber Polygon 2021 was dedicated to secure ecosystem development.


What is Cyber Polygon?

Cyber Polygon is a unique cybersecurity event that combines the world's largest technical exercise for corporate teams and an online conference featuring senior officials from international organisations and leading corporations.


Cyber Polygon 2021

Leaders of global organisations and state representatives met at the online conference to analyse the current trends and risks posed by increased interconnectivity. One of the talking points was the resilience of digital ecosystems and the promotion of a safe digital future by means of mutual efforts, justice, and equality. More than 7 million people from 78 countries tuned in to watch the Cyber Polygon online conference.

The technical training was designed for the participants to exercise their skills in repelling a massive supply chain attack on a business-critical system in real time, followed by a full-scale investigation of the incident. A total of 200 organisations from 48 countries took part in the technical training. Cybersecurity and digital sustainability are gainingmomentum across all continents, nations and trades, and even traditional industries now recognize cybersecurity as their strategic priority and seek to develop their cyber defence competencies.

The event also incorporated an expert track for field professionals which featured insightful presentations by cybersecurity experts. This track addressed an array of current cyber risks and threats, as well as the key aspects of developing a mature cybersecurity posture.
