Learn more about our project.


In a time when it is predicted that by 2020 the number of connected devices will reach 21 billion, it cannot be denied that cybersecurity is becoming more and more critical to both individuals and companies.

On the 12th-13th September 2019, we at the Bordeaux Institute of International Cybersecurity Studies (BIICS) will be hosting our first FREE annual conference; 'Tech Talks: The Politics of Cybersecurity'.

By bringing together cybersecurity experts from a wide range of professions, our conference will provide a platform for both experts and novices to learn about the different streams of tech policy, and the importance of keeping up to date with the political world of cybersecurity.
