Editorial Session 1
- Are you ready for the new EU General Data Protection Regulation
Are you ready for the new EU General Data Protection Regulation – and what are the other main regulations you need to ensure that you are both aware of and in compliance with? And what about threats from US legislation to access data in Europe? Are national clouds necessary? Cross border issues – How to tackle conflicting jurisdictions and requirements. What are the unifying principles, and what are the main differences to consider?

- Monitor and Audit Your 3rd-party / Vendor Access
Encryption is the cornerstone of security but also hides potential misuse of privileged access – both interactive and machine-to-machine. IT administrators, 3rd-party vendors, and cloud/data hosting companies are just a few of those privileged users who have access to your most critical information. However, shared accounts and encrypted communications make it difficult to know which privileged user is doing what, where and when, making privileged access vulnerable to severe attacks. In this session, we will show how to audit your network in a compliant way, establishing visibility into encrypted admin and 3rd-party access securely without compromising productivity and while keeping changes at minimum.

- Mobile is the New Desktop
This presentation covers the growing market trend of organizations embracing mobile devices as the new desktop. In essence, this means that employees are starting to do more of their job and access more information from mobile devices. Moving well beyond using mobile for email, calls or texting, the mobile device is becoming the “terminal” for interacting with CRM, ERP, collaboration ( etc.) tools. In this session, Sam Linford, Regional Sales Manager at Entrust Datacard, will explore the challenges that arise around how identities and authentication is managed as the mobile device becomes the preferred desktop.

Editorial Session 2
- Cyber-crime – avoiding data breach and theft
Around the world cyber-crime is overtaking physical crime, with every level of criminal getting in on the act, from low level scammers to international organised crime with nation-state type capabilities, robbing banks, corporations and individuals. Technology has allowed criminals to operate cross border, at scale, and even offer their services to others. So how do we combat such a threat? At SC Congress Amsterdam we’ll consider the threat, and our response, how we might become equally and better organised than our opponents, with deep cooperation and sharing of intelligence, resources and skills to defend our common interests.

- A New Approach To Next Generation Endpoint Security – Stopping Breaches.
A fundamental shift is starting to occur where cyber security activity around the world is governed by political and economic events between various countries in hot spots around the world. These clashes are manifesting themselves in cyber threats at the endpoint from hacktivists, cybercriminals and nation states, seen by CrowdStrike across billions of events via the Falcon endpoint technology platform and global crowdsource community. Trends identified by CrowdStrike show that companies who ignore the cyber ripple effects from these international developments do so at their own peril. During this presentation Mr East will disclose: – Hard-hitting new facts and insights into recent global attacks and insight into European trends – Advanced targeted intrusions and eCrime targeting corporations – Provide important lessons about how you can identify and defend against all types of attacks, both malware and malware-free.

Cyber warfare, espionage and propaganda – it’s not just the military that’s under attack from hostile nation states and politically motivated groups – everyone’s a target now. But what can you do and who can you turn to for support if you suspect you’re being hacked by foreign intelligence? And what steps can you take to thwart a sophisticated attacker? What’s the role of NATO and the CCDCOE.
