About the International Conference on Cyber Engagement

The last International Conference on Cyber Engagement attracted over 800 participants from nearly 400 organizations—corporate, government, non-profit, and academic—representing 43 nations. The conference provides a unique opportunity for experts to engage in thought leadership and constructive dialogue with key individuals from technical, corporate, legal, and policy backgrounds. The conference also explores the worldwide community’s increasing interconnectivity in the cyber domain.

Honoring General Brent Scowcroft's legacy of service, the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security works to develop sustainable, nonpartisan strategies to address the most important security challenges facing the United States and the world. By hosting ICCE, the Scowcroft Center seeks to look ahead to key trends shaping the future of cyberspace and to amplify expert voices to strengthen cyberspace governance to help manage growing challenges.

In preparation for the 2019 conference, the Atlantic Council hosted the ICCE Fall Planning Dinner on November 14, 2018, to gather partners and future speakers and government and corporate leaders to shape the agenda for the conference and discuss pressing global cybersecurity issues. On April 22, 2019, the Atlantic Council will be hosting a pre-conference invite-only Speakers and Sponsors Dinner to hear from keynote speakers The Hon. John Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security at the US Department of Justice, and H.E. Tobias Feakin, Ambassador for Cyber Affairs at the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as well as convene cybersecurity experts and leaders ahead of the conference.
