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 online events
During the pandemic, we hosted online conferences and roundtables 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 online conferences has been exceptional - you can see some quotes here:
