• With workshops and user stories, the ISDs 2019 are very focused on real-life practical cyber security
• Keynotes by Michael Niemeyer, Vice President of the BfV, the domestic intelligence service of the Federal Republic of Germany, and blogger Felix von Leitner
Know-how for cyber security today and tomorrow – this will be conveyed by more than 30 experts at the Internet Security Days (ISDs) on 26 and 27 September 2019 in keynotes, security sessions, panel discussions, and workshops. The now published agenda (in German) shows the full and extensive program for the two-day German-language conference. The eco Association invites you to this event under the motto “Game of IT Security” at Phantasialand near Cologne. The focus is on cybercrime, the future of security, secure identities, and infrastructures. User reports and workshops also provide expert knowledge with regard to emergency management, information security, and compliance.
“The agenda of the ISDs 2019 shows: On two days in three parallel tracks, a broad spectrum of IT security know-how awaits the participants,” says Markus Schaffrin, security expert and Head of Member Services at eco – Association of the Internet Industry. “With outstanding networking opportunities and an accompanying exhibition, the ISDs 2019 offer participants extraordinary insights into all current topics of Internet security.”
Professional emergency management and cyber defense
Michael Niemeyer, Vice President of the BfV, the domestic intelligence service of the Federal Republic of Germany, will kick off the day. He will report on current threat scenarios and show how the BfV is dealing with them. Bernd Kammermeier from the Center for Cyber Security of the German Armed Forces will provide insider information on Locked Shield 2019, the largest real-time cyber defense exercise in the world. How managers recognize and avoid liability scenarios for damage from cyber attacks will be discussed by Dr. Paul Malek, attorney-at-law.
In 2019, the human factor will once again be an important focus: Katja Dörlemann from SWITCH will talk about the tension between users and security – what prejudices, stereotypes, and unconscious incompetence do people show and how can they handle their own data responsibly and self-determinedly?
Workshops on practical security know-how
Practical applicability is the focus of these workshops with a limited number of participants. On Friday, Jan-Tilo Kirchhoff from Compass Security Deutschland GmbH will use real-life examples to show how penetration testers proceed when planning and carrying out security checks.
A highlight of the ISDs 2019 is the Internet Security Night on Thursday evening, 26 September. This extraordinary networking event in front of the backdrop of one of the theme worlds in Phantasialand combines security and fun – one of the main attractions of the amusement park is exclusively reserved for conference participants.
