INTERPOL to join Cyber Polygon 2020
INTERPOL will become a partner of the annual online cybersecurity exercise Cyber Polygon 2020 that will take place on July 8. This event is an official project of the World Economic Forum's Centre for Cybersecurity and BI.ZONE.
Cyber Polygon is a global initiative to build up cyber resilience and encourage intersectoral cooperation against current threats. This is an opportunity for global tech corporations, international organizations and government agencies from all over the world to test their skills in cybersecurity, exchange best practices and bring tangible results to the global community.
Even the companies with the most cutting-edge protection are not immune to cyberthreats. According to BI.ZONE, 80% of businesses are not prepared for large-scale attacks, while 46% do not recognize cybersecurity as a strategic priority. This year at Cyber Polygon, the participants will have the chance to handle simulated, yet very realistic situations without any consequences for their business. The organizations will practice real-time response to attacks, as well as incident investigation, perimeter scanning, and proper interaction with law enforcement agencies to help prevent further incidents.
In addition to the technical training, the event will offer a live stream for company executives and non-technical specialists, where they will hear from representatives of international organizations and other globally renowned experts. The topics will cover the newest discovered threats and the latest cybersecurity trends, as well as best practices in preventing and mitigating the consequences of large-scale attacks.
