ABOUT MOLDOVA CYBER WEEK 2021

The 9th edition of the “Moldova Cyber Week” is titled as Cyber Resilience Forum. As organizations are digitally transforming their operations and processes, this has also increased business risks and has opened up new opportunities for cyber attackers. In addition, COVID-19 also exacerbated the digital transformation risks and presented new challenges for cyber security leaders across the globe. Attackers are exploiting newfound uncertainties or changes in circumstances and processes, and thus, there has been an unprecedented increase in cyber-attacks.

The objectives of the Cyber Security Month are: to encourage the public to embrace a more sustained, proactive approach towards online safety and to promote awareness and dialogue about the dangers online. The Moldova Cyber Week prides itself that empowers community engagement, focuses on dialogue on cybersecurity issues by engagement with diverse member groups such as national and international governmental entities, industry, academia and research institutions and non-profits. The Moldova Cyber Week is a collective effort with a hands-on approach that empowers online safety and leans into current cyber issues with a critical analytical landscape.
