IT-Defense 2020Round 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 7, 2020.

Risk perception and cyber resilience – How we perceive risks and which ones actually exist – Volker Kozok

Current threats and risks as well as the reaction of the media and politics are presented in an introductory presentation. Moreover, different cyber initiatives on digitization and on improving cyber resilience are critically examined.

The subsequent round table discusses the following questions:

  • Have risks actually increased or have they only become more modern?
  • Is there really something like cyber resilience?
  • How can a layman distinguish actual risks from perceived risks and how can he evaluate the criticality?
  • Asking a politician, a CISO and a police officer about the biggest risks – what will they reply?
  • The data is available, we just cannot see it. Can cyber intelligence tools really help us, or do we only impress the management with their dashboards?
  • Industry 4.0, Management 3.0, Education 2.0 and Security 1.0 – where do we stand?
  • Can cyber security not also be a motor instead of only being perceived as a brake?
