7o INFOCOM SECURITY CONFERENCE

29 – 30 March 2017 – Athens, Divani Caravel

In this year’s InfoCom Security… we expect the unexpected!

While designing an IT roadmap for the development of digital technologies, necessary to support strategy and operations in every organization, small business or enterprise, the most important factor to mind these days, is data protection.

It’s also obvious that what absolutely identifies threats in the digital world, in a constantly changing environment, is the element of unpredictability. The dangers for IT infrastructures of businesses and organizations are usually unexpected. That’s why the number of victims of attacks launched by cybercriminals is constantly on the rise, and consequences are especially damaging.

So, a major challenge for security experts worldwide, is for one to detect risks in time, developing and implementing contemporary security strategies, new generation technologies and preventive check techniques. On the other hand, they have to keep businesses properly updated and prepared, in order to efficiently tackle unexpected threats, by training users to focus their attention on risks out there.

The 7th InfoCom Security Conference which takes place on 29 & 30 March 2017, titled “On the IT Roadmap – Expect the Unexpected”, aims to highlight this challenge and is once more expected with great interest. For years, it’s been a point of reference for developments on Business IT & Cyber Security. It’s also a top annual summit for IT professionals who specialize in IT security, among other things.

The three themed sessions for each day of the conference will cover the issue of digital security, combining a business approach for IT Security, along with a wider scientific and technological content on Cyber Security. About the structure of the three themed sessions, on each of the two days of the Conference, we’ll take a closer look at:

  1. Strategies, trends, consulting services and implementation of IT Security projects.
  2. Challenges and solutions for the protection of data, devices and infrastructures.
  3. Methodologies and research projects for Cyber Security, as well as Ethical Hacking techniques.

EthiHak 2017: Release your inner hacker!

After the success of the first EthiHak Contest, in April 2016, SecNews.gr joins forces once more with Smart Press, during InfoCom Security 2017, to organize the second EthiHak Contest.

For the second year in a row, SecNews.gr offers an opportunity to professional (or not) hackers, security researchers, as well as regular fans, to compete not only against one, but rather multiple live targets, in an attempt to test their skills.

 

In the “Internet of Things” age, underlying risks on the Internet are many, and people erroneously believe that hackers are just malicious scammers who are after our personal data. Once more, we aim to prove that Ethical Hackers are all but dangerous! They are especially useful in strengthening systems against modern technological challenges and risks.

So, give yourself a chance to become this year’s EthiHak Contest champion, and win the grand prize!
