The National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics - ICI Bucharest was represented by Mr. Adrian Victor Vevera, General Director, at the CyberTech International Conference 2021, organized in Israel.
In the context of accelerating the digitization process, various topics were discussed within the online event, from the new cyber risks to which the organizations that transfer their activities to the online environment are exposed, to the modalities in which the governments and the business and financial environments can protect their data and cyber infrastructures.
"Even though cryptocurrencies have become the most popular, they represent only a small part of the Blockchain Technology. Smart contracts and decentralization happen directly from our wallet. Thus, we are facing an explosion of financial products and transactions, a removal of controls and security, as well as a lack of regulation regarding this area. Counterfeiting is extremely dangerous, especially in an area where there is no competent authority to appeal to." claimed Mr. Adrian Victor Vevera, General Director of National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics - ICI Bucharest.
In addition, Mr. Adrian Victor Vevera drew attention to the challenges faced by the countries from Southeast Europe in the field of critical infrastructure security, mentioning the complexity, the ambiguity and the lack of security.
The conference was attended by international experts, companies from the field of cybersecurity, government delegates, representatives of the banking industry, investors, etc. The event was organized by Improvate, which makes technology and innovation accessible in countries all over the world.
