The 11th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Germany
19th June 2018, Munich
“The German Interior ministry has confirmed [Feb 2018] it has discovered a serious intrusion into its servers in December 2017. The attack is thought to have seen data exfiltrated for up to a year before its discovery,” DPA
“For many familiar attacks, we expect progress in AI to expand the set of actors who are capable of carrying out the attack, the rate at which these actors can carry it out, and the set of plausible targets,” The Malicious Use of AI: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation (BfV)
2018 Is the most demanding year yet in cybersecurity. On one side, information security professionals must ensure compliance with GDPR, a data privacy directive that requires companies to truly understand the smallest details of their data flows and business technology.
But on the other, a new cybersecurity arms race is under way, which requires CISOs and their peers to understand yet another new generation of offensive and defensive technologies: AI and automation look like at least part of a viable solution to the problems of scale and innovation in the threatscape.
As attackers develop sandbox evading malware, AI-powered attack software and adapted state-level hacks, CISOs need to keep up with rapidly advancing technology while satisfying increasing C-suite demands for compliance and cost-efficiency.
In addition, most businesses still underestimate the level of digitalisation required to survive in a world driven by e-Commerce, industrial and general process automation, virtualisation and data analytics.
So how can CISOs achieve this increasingly broad and complex set of objectives?
The 11th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Germany will cover these and other key subjects for its audience of professionals tasked with safeguarding digital assets and sensitive data. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions from security teams behind some of the world’s most admired brands, who know, just like you, that security is now more important to business than ever before.
