Program Round Tables

Round Tables

When it comes to a specialist conference, it is not only the lecturers' quality that matters but it is also important to exchange experiences with other participants who are in similar positions  and deal with similar issues. IT-Defense offers a clear framework to discuss security issues and topics with other participating security experts. 

Participants can discuss their own problems and other profound issues in small groups. For this purpose, IT-Defense lecturers serve as moderators; however, it is also possible to form individual groups on specific subjects.

Simultaneous round-table discussions will be available on Friday, February 2, 2018.

Something about something - New and old threats and the story behind – Volker Kozok

After a short overview of current threats and risks, various questions on recent trends will be discussed:

  • How state-sponsored are APTs really?
  • How does ransomware work without ransom?
  • Who really needs cyber intelligence tools?
  • Are the AI approaches of the cloud and the big data world rather A or I?
  • Do we need even more laws, or are the IT Security Act and the General Data Protection Regulation not (too) demanding enough already?
