Previous editions focussed on “disruptive technology” (e.g. Big Data and Blockchain). We want to focus on a topic that does not only get positive attention but also a topic which is a concern of our society. We believe that Cyber Security really matches this profile and we think that we can discuss Cyber Security from different angles:

  • We want to start with raising awareness about the damage cybercrime can do towards companies by letting an affected company tell their story.
  • We present the complete opposite of the victim; an ethical hacker (he or she will explain a potential hackers approach).
  • A consultant who helped a lot of companies to prevent attacks will provide insight in how she/he does that.
  • And the last speaker will be a representative of the Dutch government.

This is an outline of what we would like to discuss in the symposium. However, we are open for suggestions of the experts. Apart from the topic within Cyber Security which the speaker discusses, we also want to allow the submission of questions and create discussions via a mobile app to make it an interactive session. In this way we want to create interaction with the audience.
