Agora meets

November 20, 2023 - 5pm to 7pm


AI want(s) to break free: Can the EU secure the future of cyber? 

As the European Union attempts to regulate AI, discussions rage about the pros and cons of this technology. From science fiction scenarios to the recent ChatGPT buzz, AI is undoubtedly the technology of the moment that has everyone losing their heads.

AI is complex and lies at the crossroads of numerous technologies. Seen by many as a threat, it also offers endless possibilities, with far-reaching impacts for individuals, organisations and society as a whole.

Cybersecurity is no exception, and questions abound as to the extent to which AI can improve cybersecurity or, on the contrary, spell its end. While AI can be used to strengthen the security of networks and information systems, it can also be weaponised by malicious actors to conduct cyber attacks.

This event will mark the launch of the next FIC Agora publication which sheds light on these issues to better understand the impact of AI on cybersecurity, examining the impact of current European AI regulations on the sector. It will also set the scene for FIC 2024 (26-28 March), Europe’s flagship cybersecurity and digital trust event which welcomed 19,000 attendees at its 2023 edition, and will focus on « Ready for AI? Reinventing cybersecurity in the age of AI ».

The FIC Agora event will tackle questions such as:

How can AI improve cyber capabilities in predicting and preventing cyber attacks?
How can AI mitigate the impact of a cyber attack and improve incident response?
Will EU regulations such as the AI Act stifle innovation and ultimately threaten cybersecurity?

Venue & registration

The event will take place on the 20 November 2023 in Brussels, from 17:00 to 19:00 and followed by a networking cocktail. The event will be held in hybrid format, with the possibility of joining online.
