The growing scope and sophistication of cyber threats and the changing character of the operating environments have implications for developing military cyber capabilities. It raises a challenge of creating effective teaching methodologies that would aim at providing cyber education for military and civilian officers at joint and senior levels to develop understanding of cyber threats and its effects, gain knowledge of the use of cyber capabilities in military operations and develop ability to understand the complexities of the operational and strategic environment in the cyber context.

The Baltic Defence College as a professional military education institution is working to develop academic excellence in teaching and researching the military utility of contemporary information and communications technologies and their implication for military operations and strategic leadership in multidimensional domains. The Baltic Defence College aims to become a hub of research on teaching methodologies and educational quality in the education of military officers and therefore is organizing the Fourth Annual Cyber Security Conference, focusing on integrating cyber domain into professional military education.

The Conference is aimed at exploring education strategies and methodologies in cyber domain and incorporating different domains by offering interdisciplinary cyber education which would link together the understanding of the development and employment of capabilities necessary to operate in cyberspace and their integration and coordination with other operational domains.

The Fourth Annual Conference on Cyber Security will offer a range of keynote presentations, panel discussions and a workshop which will allow participants to share the ideas and experiences of integrating cyber domain into educational curricula by identifying and discussing challenges, best practice standards and methodologies in the area.
