Cybersecurity and Managerial Challenges

Cyber Security and its Evolution: New Approaches and Policies"

20th & 21st SEPTEMBER 2017

LUGANO - SWITZERLAND

 

 

Welcome from the organizers

We are pleased to bring to your kind attention the upcoming CMC Cybersecurity symposium, which for the third consecutive year will bring together in Lugano both domestic, as well as international institutional and business representatives.

The symposium will build on the successful 2015 & 2016 cyber conferences in Lugano, which not only drew an international list of attendees from government, academia and industry, but which also is cementing its role as one of Switzerland’s truly international Cybersecurity symposium’s. The focus will be on the challenges of enhancing cyber security as the field evolves precipitously.

Businesses and governments are acutely aware of the financial, reputational and disruptive effects of cyber-attacks.as they evolve in frequency and severity, and become a mainstream concern globally. Our goal is to assess, mitigate, and block cyberattacks, not only through expert insight on the scope and nature of an always evolving cyber threat, but to have those specialists offer their perspectives on the problems and viable solutions for the next generation cyberattacks.

Representatives from leading Swiss and International businesses will represent the private sector, whereas the governmental sector & the international organizations will be represented by past or current specialists.

Some of the topics to be addressed include:

  • mobile security threats
  • insider threats, data breaches & theft
  • political related hacking
  • the hacking of a drone
  • legal and insurance perspectives on cyber security
  • internet of things (IoT & smart cities)
  • the dark & deep web and cyber offensive strategies
  • shortage of skilled cybersecurity experts
  • ransomware and its lucrative development
  • cybersecurity regulations and compliances
  • case studies of successful cyber-attacks

The event, promoted by KNC Consulting Switzerland in partnership with Franklin University Switzerland (www.fus.edu), is proud to have received the patronage of the City of Lugano, as well as support from numerous sponsors and partners.

The location will be the prestigious “Nielsen Auditorium” at the Lugano-Sorengo Campus of Franklin University Switzerland.

We thank you in advance for your attention and look forward to receiving your confirmation of participation.

Yours sincerely,
Kim Hildebrant
CEO K.N.C. Consulting and Chairman of the Organising Committee
