Another one has joined the list of global problems concerning humanity – cybercrime. Cybercriminals, who at first glance seem to be relatively harmless people who do not cause direct harm to people’s health, can easily manipulate the minds of citizens and commit serious crimes, for example, stealing account details in various ways, obtaining information to hack your account or open it in your name.

In addition, cybercriminals distribute virus programs, crack passwords, and send immoral materials over the Internet and information based on lies and slander. Such activities pose a significant threat to humanity.

The emergence of cyber terrorism, the increasingly dangerous threat, is also causing concern.

In Uzbekistan, which is increasingly integrating into the world community, a consistent government policy is being implemented on the effective use of information and communication technologies, information systems, and modern computer technologies. Competent government authorities have established extensive international cooperation to prevent and combat cybercrime.

This was discussed at the Second International Cybersecurity Summit “Cybersecurity Summit – Central Eurasia, CSS – 2023” in Tashkent.

The event, organized jointly with the Cyber Security Center and the Dialogue Events company, is attended by 130 companies from 24 countries and over 250 delegates.

Among the participants are regulatory authorities from more than 10 foreign countries, such as Oman, Azerbaijan, Türkiye, Georgia, Japan, Turkmenistan, and Kazakhstan, as well as international organizations – the International Telecommunication Union, FIRST, OIC-CERT.

Director of the CSS-2023 Conference Yulia Romanenko noted that the primary goal of the event is to create a high-level international interactive platform for the regional cyber community to exchange experiences, demonstrate modern solutions, and, most importantly, open new opportunities on a mutually beneficial basis.

At the summit, qualified experts from Central Asian countries expressed their opinions on the current state of the sphere and practical solutions to existing problems.

The event program included general discussions and presentation sessions. The exhibition area and exciting networking events will allow participants to demonstrate technologies and solutions and create new business contacts effectively.

The summit continues its work. The “Cyberkent” Republican Competition will also be held as part of the event.
