Together with the ITU, International Telecom Union, the Energypact Foundation has initiated a very tentative dialogue on energy security and cyber security in 2014 by conducting a conference in the ITU headquarters in Geneva. https://www.energypact.org/
This conference was significant, not only in the topic matter, but also became the genesis of the Vienna Cyber Security Week, including the establishment of partnerships with many international and national organizations contributing together with our Austrian partners, to the success of the Vienna Cyber Security Week since 2017.
In March 2019 more than 800 participants gathered from all over the world to the WKO, Austrian Chamber of Commerce, confirming the international recognization of the Vienna Cyber Security Week as a neutral multi-stakeholder platform of information, dialogue and capacity building on cyber security issues.
Consequently the Energypact Foundation activities related to the Vienna Cyber Security Week were transferred to a new legal entity registered in Vienna, the Vienna Cyber Security Week Association, with the goal to organize and promote the Vienna Cyber Security Week conferences together with its Austrian and International governmental and non-governmental partners.
