A new Course for Leaders tackling Cyber Conflicts

After almost one year of preparations, the Center for Cooperation in Cyberspace (CCC) is proud to announce the public launch of “Cyberconflict Prevention and Resolution”, a groundbreaking Executive Course in collaboration with a world leading business school, NOVA SBE.

“Cyberconflict Prevention and Resolution” responds to the growing need that global leaders have for clear and in-depth guidance on how the behaviors in cyberspace of state and non-state actors are reshaping the business environment by introducing new challenges for organizational security.

The 4 days in-person Course will be held in Lisbon in early 2023. In this first edition, classes will be conducted in Portuguese.  Renowned experts in the area – including senior officials and directors of companies and agencies such as the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, Microsoft, Vodafone, Deloitte and EY – will lead the sessions and share their know-how and international experience in cyber affairs.

Registration is now open and we kindly invite you to visit the Course’s page for additional details.

The Center for Cooperation in Cyberspace had substantial input from our members and partners, as well as from our colleagues involved in the ongoing negotiations of the United Nations Cybercrime Treaty. We are therefore truly grateful to all those who continue to inspire our work.


CCC to participate in the negotiations of the first UN Convention against Cybercrime

The Center for Cooperation in Cyberspace (CCC) was approved by the United Nations to participate in the works of the ‘Ad Hoc Committee to Elaborate a Comprehensive International Convention on Countering the Use of Information and Communications Technologies for Criminal Purposes’ (AHC).

The CCC is the only Portuguese NGO participating in this landmark process, in which the UN Member States are tasked with negotiating and drafting the first legally binding instrument to prevent, investigate and prosecute cybercrime at the global scale.

Representing over 20 members from Latin America and African civil societies, the CCC will be at the United Nations Headquarters in New York for the third round of the negotiations, alongside organizations such as Microsoft, Amazon, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Deloitte, Mandiant, Chatham House, and Interpol. This third round of the AHC is set to discuss the following agenda items: International Cooperation, Technical Assistance, Preventive Measures, and the Mechanisms of Implementation of the future Convention.
