Position yourself and your company in a presentation or workshop and become part of our Internet Security Days

Avail of the opportunity to present your expertise to a broad professional audience, highlight your specialist knowledge and clearly position yourself and your company as an expert in this field. Apply now! You can submit your ideas for a presentation in our Call for Papers until 3 April 2022.

With this Call for Papers, we are looking for speakers on the following topics:

  • Cyber crime - The show goes on
    Cyber criminals know no rest, with not a day going by without reports of successful attacks or security incidents. Ransomware regularly paralyses entire municipal institutions or companies for days. The gateways range from the exploitation of human vulnerabilities, to faulty software, right through to service providers. Today, no company can afford to be unprotected.
    How do the perpetrators operate and how can one protect oneself appropriately?
  • In the beginning was security – a pipe dream?
    For a long time now, security experts have been calling for holistic security concepts. This includes the securing of supply chains, the need for which was painfully demonstrated by several attacks last year. With the increasing complexity of products and software, security must not only be factored in right from the beginning, but also thought through. Concepts such as Security by Design and Security by Default, but also the automation of security, are becoming increasingly important.
    How can products be rendered secure throughout their entire life cycle?
  • Trust on the Internet – Trust me if you can
    Secure digital identities are increasingly becoming a key technology in the ongoing digitalisation process. Although various technical solutions have been around for a long time, implementation is often still in its infancy. The use of encryption is also not reaching its actual potential.
    What do practical concepts for protecting confidentiality and authenticity look like?
  • Secure world – Security for a connected world
    As digitalisation accelerates, IT is permeating more and more areas of life. Without sufficient protection, the risk of attacks in these areas also increases. This also affects sectors that are particularly in need of protection, such as healthcare, mobility or public administration. Connectivity in the Internet of Things offers many opportunities, but security aspects must also not be shoved into the background here.
    How can the connected world be made secure?
