Warsaw Security Forum and Strategic Dialogue in Warsaw

This year, ELNET-Poland stepped up its partnership with the Warsaw Security Forum (WSF), the biggest security conference in the Central and Eastern Europe, which took place on November 6-9, 2017. ELNET-Poland invited two senior Israeli speakers to participate at prominent panels and held a special ELNET Roundtable on cyber and counter-terrorism with four Israeli experts and senior former officials, showcasing Israel’s knowhow in the field to international audience. Like in previous years, the 2017 Warsaw Security Forum Conference attracted key policy makers, industry leaders, as well as military and civilian experts from around the world to discuss events, trends, as well as opportunities and challenges lying ahead for the Transatlantic Community.
