The Cipher Brief is pleased to announce the 2024 Kyiv Economic and Security Forum, to take place in Kyiv, Ukraine in April, 2024.  This widely-anticipated conference follows our inaugural event in May 2023 that brought together U.S. business professionals and national security experts in conversation with Ukrainian government representatives, business professionals, and leading Ukrainian academics focused on building the relationships that are driving security and stability in Ukraine.  

Conference Passes

Pricing for conference passes is available upon acceptance of application.  If approved, you are under no obligation to purchase a conference pass.  Once conference passes have been purchased, they are non-refundable but can be transferred to another participant upon approval of The Cipher Brief’s security team on a case by case basis.

Security Waiver

Approved attendees will be asked to sign a security waiver demonstrating that they realize there is risk associated with traveling to Ukraine and that Ukraine is a country currently at war.  While The Cipher Brief is taking steps to mitigate some security risk for attendees, The Cipher Brief is not responsible for your safety while traveling or while attending the conference or events related to the conference.

The Cipher Brief will work with approved attendees to help facilitate a smooth itinerary while traveling to and from Ukraine.  We will provide all attendees with our recommended options for crossing the border and can provide additional assistance on a case by case basis.
