GDPR is coming!
Cyber Security… the day after!
The 8th Infocom Security event coincides with the “year of GDPR”, as many call 2018, because of the imminent application -on March 25- of the well-known European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
This regulation compels all organizations and businesses to comply with a new framework of technical and organizational measures for the protection of personal data, and fines especially high amounts in cases of data breach and loss. Another significant development is the official establishment of the Data Protection Officer (DPO) position.
However, the most essential and important change that GDPR brings, is that through its obligatory application, it sets the foundation for the creation of a really secure IT infrastructure in organizations and businesses.
So, businesses should grab this opportunity and look to the day after, in relation to digital security and the protection of their IT systems and the data they manage. A day after when digital security professionals and specialists, are called upon to significantly contribute in guiding their organizations, in order to optimize important procedures, like:
- Risk assessment
- Security policies
- Security penetrations
- Users training
- Adoption of technology-based solutions and services
As such, the 8th Infocom Security Conference, on 18 and 19 April, will focus on the immediate and necessary adjustments that businesses and organizations have to make, in order to comply with all aspects of GDPR, while looking to the day after and at the big picture, of information security.
The main feature of the conference, this year as well, will be the multitude of subject content, combining a business approach to IT Security, along with a wider scientific and technological interest about cyber-security.
Infocom Security will once again be an opportunity for you to keep informed about the evolution of digital threats, find out about trends and strategies developed in the sector of information security, get to know new data protection technologies and solutions, as well as meet up with people of this industry, from Greece and other countries, including peers, specialized scientists and researchers in this field.
