On 15th and 16th December 2020, NATO Rapid Deployable Corps - Greece (NRDC-GR) organized and conducted the “2020 Cyber Operations Seminar”. The event, initially scheduled to take place in the Officers Club of Thessaloniki, but due to the COVID-19 restrictions was conducted via teleconference.
During the two days event, distinguished speakers from the Hellenic National Defence General Staff (HNDGS), NATO Centers of Excellence [Cooperative Cyber Defence (CCD) and Security Force Assistance (SFA)], NATO Maritime Interdiction Operational Training Centre (NMIOTC) and Hellenic Universities, gave interesting and enlightening lectures in order to address cyber operation challenges that military planners face during the Operations Planning Process. In order to have a comprehensive and holistic approach, the entire spectrum of the ‘’fifth dimension operations’’ was covered; including the legal aspects, cyber threats, etc.
Due to the pandemic conditions the 64 attendees were in distance, but the number of questions and the interaction via the digital platform, showed that the audience was more than interested and all the training goals achieved.
