On June 22nd, 2023, the STARLIGHT partner, Pluribus One, hosted its the Second Edition of the Cyber Journey event in Sardinia, showcasing EU-funded cybersecurity research. The event took place at the T-Hotel in Cagliari, Italy, and featured an engaging panel discussion on AI for security and security for AI, with prominent experts in attendance.
During the event, the STARLIGHT project was highlighted on the AI for Security panel, shedding light on the significance of cybersecurity and exploring the evolving landscape of modern attacks and defence strategies.
In recent years, cybersecurity has transitioned from a niche interest to a widely discussed and vital topic in mainstream media and blogs. The increasing sophistication of cyberattacks calls for a systematic approach to mitigate or avoid them, emphasising the importance of cybersecurity.
Cedric Gouy-Pailler, from partner CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique), participated in the panel alongside experts such as Fabio Massacci, Enrico Frumento, and Maura Pintor. Their discussions delved into the complexities of AI and security in AI.
The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) also contributed to the event by presenting the legal and regulatory initiatives Europe is undertaking to safeguard the digital world.
PLURIBUS ONE, in partnership with KINAITICS, organised the Cyber Journey event as a means of raising awareness about the rapidly growing cybersecurity sector. The physical event in Cagliari served as an opportunity to learn about the dynamics of modern attacks, defence strategies, and the regulatory frameworks guiding the industry.
This second edition was aptly named the "Europe Edition," providing researchers from EU-funded projects with a platform to foster collaboration and exchange ideas. The event focused on software security and solutions enabling software security, with the OWASP Foundation supporting it through its Italian Chapter.
With over 100 attendees from across Europe, the Cyber Journey event proved to be a success, further advancing the discourse on cybersecurity and strengthening collaborative efforts in the field.
