In this new environment, cybersecurity professionals are facing a host of new threats.
Remote working, an increased reliance on cloud and SaaS, staff availability shortages, and the increase in targeted attacks against under-pressure staff are putting organisations around the world under even more strain.
At this challenging time, information-sharing and collaboration are crucial to our ability to defend systems and data against cybercriminals.
Value-driven virtual events
Over the past year, we've hosted virtual conferences and round-tables for senior audiences all across EMEA, with a strong focus on providing the same high-level content and networking our community is accustomed to, while leveraging the added benefits made possible by the online format.
The feedback for our virtual conferences has been exceptional - you can see some quotes here:
"As always, the e-Crime Benelux remains an excellent event full of insights both from presentations and the resources available. I was apprehensive about the virtual version but the virtual space was beyond anything I have experienced. Navigation was clear and smooth and it was easy to make contact with peers and vendors. Actually, there was additional value to be able to exchange comments during the presentations, on the side-chat. It wasn’t too distracting and permitted to clarify questions as they came to mind. All in all, a fantastic experience. Only thing missing were the muffins!" - Data Processing Manager, International Criminal Court
"The e-Crime Congress organized virtually on 21st October was one of a kind. The contents were as always excellent and engrossing. What stood out is the format, layout of the website, organization and logistics – it was absolutely amazing.
