ENCRYPT @ CypSec2023

Our colleague from EIGHT BELLS, Demetris Antoniou, Senior Cybersecurity Manager, gave a speech on the importance of preserving truth in military settings and its impact on defense and cybersecurity, during the CYPSEC 2023, organised on 15-16 May 2023, at Nicosia, Cyprus.

In his speech entitled “Defense and Cybersecurity: Preserving Truth“, during the second day of the conference, in the morning session, he described how the use of privacy preserving technologies to be developed in the framework of ENCRYPT, support the challenges posed by untrue information.

Nowadays geopolitics is the driver of a battle between true democracies and democracies just in name, in a global setting. For true democracy to survive, there is a need for a solid basis for transparency and truth. To preserve truth, we can utilise ground breaking research in Privacy Preserving technologies (based on the research conducted in the framework of ENCRYPT), to address the challenges and threats imposed by fake news.

The aim of the conference was to present the capabilities of the most modern and effective technology in Defense & Security matters to the new Cypriot authorities, in the context of today’s unstable international environment which is full of security challenges.
