Overview of the event

Cyber security systems and principles are designed to safeguard websites and web applications from attackers seeking to disrupt, delay, alter or redirect the flow of data. These attackers vary in target, motive, levels of organization, and technical capabilities, requiring public and private organizations to adopt ever-increasing measures to prevent cyber attacks.

Governments maintain cyber security measures to protect the integrity of critical infrastructure for financial systems, public health, science, and safety institutions, and defense, aerospace, and intelligence agencies.

Private enterprises use cyber security and online data protection help prevent lost revenues, harm to brand reputation, and potential fines or legal liabilities.

The Conference aims to help achieve cooperative solutions and industry teaming to defend against the ever-growing cyber threat.

Learning outcomes:

Protection , Mitigation, Understanding, Sharing, Gaining, Knowing and Optimizing.

X Topic Abstract

Physical environments are an often neglected area of cyber security, yet that is where a lot of the cyber security risks lie.
- While a lot of physical environments are secured, many cyber security risks are associated with humans entering spaces they're not supposed to be in. Facial recognition technology can prevent these incidents from occurring.

- Access cards can be stolen or passwords exchanged. Facial recognition software can act as a double verification to ensure people cannot enter restricted areas unless they're really that person, for instances at turnstiles into a secured building. You can even map out an entire physical space and detect in real time when someone sits in front of a computer that's not theirs. This will close the loopholes that card and password access systems leave behind.
- Another cyber security risk is the skimming of bank ATMs. With Optic Insights it's instantly detected when a skimming device is placed on an ATM and a photo/video of the person doing so is captured in the system. When the person is spotted near another ATM/bank branch, security can be alerted in real time.

X Topic Abstract

X Topic Abstract

The European Data Privacy Law (GDPR) came into effect last May and is profoundly changing the Information Security culture of companies dealing with private data. Everyone selling goods or services into the EU must adhere to the standards defined in the law. However, the law implicitly demands efforts in Cyber Security as well. This means there must be a substantial effort in place in order to demonstrate compliance and to avoid stiff fines.

X Topic Abstract

As a society our most precious assets are our children or future generations. We all love and care for our children and want to do the best for them in terms of their education. We buy the latest technology for them from mobile phones, to laptops, and tablet computers. In fact such technology has become a standard in many schools across the world. Yet we don't consistently teach children about the importance of cyber security, we don't provide funds to secure the IT and communications infrastructure in schools, and we don't have highly specialized cyber security professional protecting schools, colleges, and universities. Politicians are attempting to push responsibility back onto the parents and children. Is the proposed Digital License an answer to this problem?"
