In an era where cyber threats loom large and digital infrastructure is the backbone of modern societies, national cyber conference “Cocon” to be held in Kochi will emerge as a beacon of knowledge sharing uniting experts from various cyber domains to enrich collective understanding of cybersecurity and digital infrastructure.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman S Somnath, National Technical Research Organisation Chairman Arunkumar Sinha and National Cyber Security Coordinator Lt General M U Nair will be among the prominent speakers at the 16th edition of the conference which will be held from October 4 to 7.
The conference being held under the ageis of Kerala Police has attracted a diverse array of cyber professionals, ranging from government officials and cybersecurity experts to technology innovators and academics. The event serves as a platform for these individuals to exchange insights, share best practices, and collaborate on strategies to fortify our digital defences.
“One of the key objectives of the conference is to address the evolving landscape of cyber threats. With the constant emergence of new attack vectors, malware, and cybercriminal tactics, staying ahead of the curve is paramount. The conference features in-depth discussions on the latest threat intelligence, vulnerability assessments, and incident response strategies,” said ADGP Intelligence Manoj Abraham who is the chief coordinator of the conference.
The conference will also showcase Flying Jet Suit of UK-based Gravity Industries. The Jet Suit was launched in 2017 to help rescue and assist people in isolated areas during natural disasters.
Cocon will also delve into the critical area of securing digital infrastructure in the wake of governments and businesses relying heavily on interconnected digital systems. As cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, the conference facilitates dialogue between government agencies and industry leaders which is crucial for the development of cybersecurity policies, regulations, and standards that can adapt to the ever-changing threat landscape while promoting innovation.
