The event is being organized by the Pôle d’Excellence Cyber and its partners, with from the support of the French Ministry for Armed Forces and Bretagne Regional Council.

They are highly committed to and involved in the cluster, whether they be military or civilian, public or private, industrial or academic actors. Together they are leading some 15 major projects that will be key to growing the cyber defence and cyber security sector.
