We prepared these hot topics crucial for you just in November 2023 due to the unique BeNeLux cyber landscape including: highly interconnected supply chains, dependance on third party vendors, and the region’s high adoption of multi-cloud which is  the next frontier. All these raise the need for a new cloud security operations model and the need for safeguarding your IoT ecosystems.

In addition,  increased cyber threats during the holiday season impose development of a strong cybersecurity workforce,  with you as a leader of building cyber resilience.

That is why you must stay updated on the latest trends to effectively protect your leadership position and your organization.

Cyberthreats continue to grow and cybercriminals are getting more sophisticated. Hence, every user of an organisation, regardless of insiders or outsiders, must be authenticated and authorised. In order to help prevent cyberattacks, one must implement zero trust security effectively.

  • What are the fundamental principles of zero trust?
  • Continuous verification and authentication of devices as no device is out of the suspect list.
  • There are so many aspects of the implementation of Zero Trust, e.g: MFA, Data encryption, comprehensive security assessment etc, what works best for your organisation?

Deepfakes are here, and they are here to stay. And with technology ever advancing, it is no longer a matter of simply knowing what a deepfake is. Organizations need to actively decide how they can utilize them to grow their business, and at the same time defend against the malicious use of this technology. In this session, we’ll look at the evolving role of deepfakes in our lives. We’ll talk about real-world examples, you’ll learn what makes them so special, and how you can protect against deepfakes in general.

The world changes at a very rapid pace. The walls that once were related to creating secret and maintaining it as such are falling. Organizations are in the need of going beyond just privacy, encryption or tokenization and embrace the whole journey enabled by information discovery, data lineage, observability, governance, risk reduction,… so that data protection sits at the core of every industry, market and geography. At the end of day, it is the ultimate goal of any company on the planet: Protect and Defend. By attending this session attendees will experience real-world use cases about Information Protection and how different industries have adapted and adopted processes, procedures and technology to amplify their reach in Data Protection. This is what is required. To go beyond security. To further comprehend protection as a whole. Protection beyond Security.

We’re transforming into cloud-native architecture. There’s no doubt about that.

Containers and software-defined infrastructure raise their own security challenges.

But how is this different than legacy tech-stacks from the perspective of the attacker?

We get endless numbers of CVE alerts regarging our infra and apps to the point that we can’t see the forrest from the trees. 

Given a predictable, uniform and explicable way of validating attack vectors and triaging the remediation, 

We could zoom in better on the most imminent threats.

This talk will cover how we can dynamically test cloud-native environments. 

What are the challenges in our path and what tools are readily available for us to employ.

We shall conclude with the rationale to strive for uniform methodology and platform.
