The number of people and machines using information and communication technologies and the usage time and prevalence of these technologies have rapidly been increased. Besides many benefit and convenience in our daily life, technology also presents risks  in terms of cybersecurity. There are several methods to avoid or minimize such risks. Increasing awareness, educating people about this issue, using capable security devices, applying cybersecurity standards and information sharing are some of those methods.

One of the most important tool in the fight against cyber-threats and in ensuring national and global cybersecurity is information sharing, where different organizations share information regarding threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities with each other so that each organization’s knowledge benefits the other.

Within this context, this session examines different information sharing models in cybersecurity and aims to provide a discussion space for national CERTs and other relevant actors.

Each speaker will be given 7-10 minutes to present his/her views on the issue. Then the floor will be open to participants also since the aim is to have an inclusive and open discussion on the subject. The social media contributors will also be given a voice by the moderator.
