Kaunas, Lithuania - 16-18 April 2019

The WISE Community and SIG-ISM held their first joint meeting back in 2015: 

Four years later, it was decided that it is time to touch-base again, discuss the work done and plan future collaboration. In the joint sessions, we will talk about the progress of the groups in the past few years, share the results and outcomes and present some challenges that can be overcome together. After that, we will schedule some group sessions where we will work on specific topics, such as:

  • Risk Assessment and Management
  • Security Baselining 
  • Training and Awareness 
  • Crisis Management
  • Information Exchange 
  • ...

Please contact Sigita Jurkynaite ( to add your topic for the agenda - we are looking for presentations or discussion topics (either plenary or break out).
