Safe Internet League to attend China’s Internet Security Conference


Internet Security Conference, due to open on August 16, 2016 in Beijing, China, is set to welcome Head of Safe Internet League Denis Davydov as one of its keynote speakers.

ISC is one of the largest and most representative Asian-Pacific industry conferences on cybersecurity. First held in 2013 by the Cybersecurity Association of China and the 360 Internet Security Centre, the event enjoys the support of the nation’s Cyberspace Administration, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and Ministry of Public Security. The 2016 conference will discuss trends and prospects of the international cybersecurity industry. Expected to attend the event are more than 30 000 specialists from all over the globe and 150 representatives of cybersecurity firms. Delivering keynote speeches will be John McAfee, founder of the company behind McAfee AntiVirus and a 2016 US Presidential candidate, Wu Hequan, member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Zhou Hongyi, founder of Qihoo 360, the world’s largest antivirus company, John Davis, Vice President of the network security solutions company Palo Alto Networks (USA), Chu Chengyun, Director of Cyber Security Strategy at Microsoft (USA), and others.

‘It is a great honour to be representing Russia at an event of such importance. The international community is currently in search of a new model of Internet governance, one based on a civilised approach, transparency, respect for and preservation of the sovereignty of nation states, and the inadmissibility of unilateral control by any single country (which is, in fact, continuing to be the case). I am sure the Beijing meeting help us make progress on this issue’ Mr Davydov said prior to the conference.
