Nordic IT Security and SKYDD are partnering up to create Scandinavia’s biggest security show! The two biggest events in the region for information security and physical protection will co-locate their events in 2016 as part of partnership to provide security professionals with an integrated platform to evaluate their security requirements.
Nordic IT Security will bring together best-in-breed solutions for Information Security and Physical Security under the same roof, providing Europe’s Chief Security Officers and other Risk Management professionals with a one-stop-shop catering to all their security needs. Over 60 speakers will be covering the future of IT Security on 6 different stages.
So what are the topics we are looking into on the 26th of October at Stockholmsmässan?
Using fear as a major component of the online extortion will increase. Besides solving the technical aspects of each operation it becomes crucial to master the psychology behind online threats. Cyber extortionists will devise new ways to target its victim’s psyche to make each attack “personal” - either for an end user or an enterprise.
Data Protection Regulation
The EU Data Protection directive will mandate a high standard of protection on data. DPOs and CISOs must be experts in data protection and data security regulations and must how these should be effectively implemented. However, not all enterprises will be up to the task. Awareness around data protection will pave the way to a significant shift in the enterprise mindset and strategy against cyber-attacks. We will see more enterprises taking on the role of the ‘hunter’ instead of the ‘hunted’, in that they will begin to make use of threat intelligence and next-generation security solutions with custom defense to detect intrusions earlier.
Global Cybercrime Legislation Movement
We need an enhanced international collaboration and partnerships to fight cybercrime - fast legislation, successful takedowns, convictions and arrests. Cybersecurity standards are outdated. Governments and regulators will play a more active role in protecting the Internet and safeguarding users.
The mobile workforce is increasing, meaning employees who have access to company or other sensitive data through their personal laptop, tablets or smartphones are becoming an increasing risk for organizations. Mobility is now also significantly adopted in commerce. Online sales via mobile devices are growing at three times the rate of traditional online sales and according to PWC’s Global Information Security Survey, 57% of the respondents have adopted mobile payment systems. How can we stay secure in a 24/7 connected world?
Cloud computing has emerged as a sophisticated tool for cybersecurity safeguards in recent years as cloud providers steadily invested in advanced technologies for data protection, privacy, network security and identity and access management. Forward-thinking companies are already shifting away from traditional perimeter defenses in favor of cloud-enabled cybersecurity that is based on real-time analysis of data and user-behavior patterns.
