Convenience and Security Should Not Be a Trade-Off

For the sake of our convenience, everything is becoming interconnected. At home, at work and on the streets. But all interconnected devices are potential targets for cyber-attacks which is why adequate security controls are of paramount importance. A lack thereof can lead to security breaches which will cost companies and individuals money, time and very likely, their reputation. Convenience and security should not be a trade-off but the two qualities that go along with each other. This is particularly true when it comes to Critical Infrastructures, which are organizations or institutions that are essential for the public. As such, they are subject to comprehensive and strict legal regimes consisting of laws and regulations. Their failure or significant impairments can result in sustained supply shortages, significant disruptions to public safety or other drastic consequences.

At next week’s co-located CyberNext Summit and Borderless Cyber (organized by IACD and OASIS Open Consortium) we will discuss a great variety of aspects of cybersecurity including IoT and industrial IoT security, Critical Infrastructures, Endpoint Anti-malware Managementy, Information Protection Lifecycle and many more. We have speakers from companies such as MasterCard, Goldman Sachs, IBM and McAfee but also from governmental institutions such as the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the United States Cyber Command.

Representatives of the press and bloggers can accredit free of charge by filling out this accreditation form.
