Cybersecurity Management

Challenges Symposium 2023

Hosted at Franklin University Switzerland


1st December 2023

From 13:00 to 19:00


Welcome from the organizers

Cybersecurity threats are a major concern for organizations of all sizes. At Cybersecurity Management Challenges Symposium 2023, we believe that prevention is key and that proactively addressing potential risks can significantly lessen the impact of an attack.


Our guest speakers have a comprehensive understanding of the cybersecurity landscape and are dedicated to providing you with the latest information and solutions to ensure your organization stays safe and secure.

The Cybersecurity Management Challenges Organizing Committee and Franklin University Switzerland are pleased to announce the seventh annual symposium taking place on the 1st December 2023 at Franklin University Switzerland in Lugano.


The Symposium this year, as in the past, will gather policy-makers, business executives, and security specialists from government and academic institutions to discuss and formulate responses to the future evolution of cybersecurity, as the threats evolve and expand in a globalized international socio-political system.


Cybersecurity has come a long way in the last decade as it was not an item that seemed of great interest to the larger world but it became so because of cyber war in the relations among friends and enemies in international affairs. Soon after, the digitalization of communications, marketing, and financial transactions all witnessed political and criminal attempts to shape collective perceptions and inevitably manipulate social and political power relations.


The world of business and economic activities relies heavily on digitalized interactions. The challenge of cybersecurity is central to the interactive development of technology, business, and finance.


This symposium will introduce participants to the most pressing challenges posed in this area and the evermore dynamic and competitive national and international economic systems that are trying to adapt to these trends.
