V4CyberPower is the first edition of the international knowledge exchange forum where the most important voices of the IT industry of the Visegrad Group countries (V4) were heard. The discussions of the panelists set new directions for development of the area and made it possible to find a common language to accelerate the necessary digitalization processes of the Visegrad Group member states through a rational cybersecurity policy.
The conference was devoted to cybercrime and ways of preventing it from an international perspective. The event consisted of numerous subsections. Speakers as part of the presented papers indicated, in particular, the methods of fighting cybercrime and the use of the current world situation in social engineering attacks.
