The Atlantic Council conference that is starting in Warsaw will foster further growth of Polish and US companies that specialise in cybersecurity, Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki said on Thursday at the opening of a Polish-US cybersecurity conference.

In his speech that inaugurated the two-day Atlantic Council conference, Prime Minister Morawiecki stressed the importance of promoting cooperation in order to increase cybersecurity.

"We want to discuss how to ensure and secure the fourth industrial revolution, but this meeting also underlines Poland's digital transformation process and our responsible development programme," the prime minister said.

Expressing hope that the conference will translate into "long-term cooperation" that will boost further growth of Polish and US cybersecurity companies, PM Morawiecki said he was sure that "our national specialisation, the IT sector, will enable Polish businesses to expand their scale of operation (...) to a global one."

The Atlantic Council conference will deal with issues related to the Polish digital transformation, the role of innovation, fighting disinformation, cloud technologies, the protection of critical infrastructure and cybersecurity education. Experts will focus on three areas: policies, innovation and leadership in the private sector. (PAP)
