Keynote Session 1: Digital Transformation and Cybersecurity Challenges Kevin Simzer, COO, Trend Micro (30 min)
Constant IT change is the new normal for organizations around the world. These changes are empowering us with better and more efficient use of their most important asset—information. Cloud and data center modernization has led to evolving security strategies as we ensure performance is not sacrificed and security gaps are not created. Complex networks have enabled security to go beyond perimeter defenses and also detect lateral movement within networks but have also presented more points to protect than ever before. New environments require new ways of thinking about security to ensure their vulnerabilities are addressed and that performance is uncompromised.
Keynote Session 2: The Global Sate of Scams Jorij Abraham, CEO, Scamadviser (30 min)
With 50 billion euros lost in scams and an expected growth rate of 40%, online fraud is now the most reported type of crime in most countries. With a change of getting caught of less than 0.05% scams have become a safe and very lucrative business. Jorij Abraham discusses the latest facts, figures and forecasts in online scams, and more importantly, how can we fight them more effectively and efficiently.
