Side effects of (re)genAI impacting cyber security
Nov 14, 2023

The side effects of (re)generative AI impacting cyber security


The polarizing public discussion about ChatGPT and its siblings and the smokescreens of those responsible for technology and business behind the brands obscure a differentiated view on the non-obvious side effects of a completely overheated Chatbot rally. This makes it difficult to seriously address the partially mutually dependent side effects of the large-scale public use of this technology.


Employers in particular are torn between giving in to the tempting benefits of this technology while, at the same time, they have to live up to their responsibility towards the law, regulations such as ESG, their organizations and their digital assets, the society and the duty of care towards their employees. All of that without missing a beat of innovation in that field.


In this workshop, we'll jointly explore the missing questions that need individual answers for a conscious, responsible and security aware use of AI.

Jackson Shaw - Fire Safety and Cyber-Security – Smoke Detectors are Not Enough
May 15, 2018

It takes most businesses over 6 months to detect a breach on their network. And while smoke detectors are proven to halve the death rate by fire, saving thousands of lives each year, detection is sometimes too late to prevent many buildings from burning to the ground.

So imagine if it were possible to reduce the risk of a cyber-security fire starting in the first place. We are all familiar with the elements needed to start a fire: heat, oxygen and fuel. For data breaches, one key element of risk is abnormally high access entitlements. Detecting these abnormalities early, across your enterprise, enables you to remove them entirely from the equation. Couple this insight with sophisticated smoke detection equipment and you have an increased chance of limiting the damage wrought by any fire to your business.

In this keynote, we will talk about the importance of fire prevention in your enterprise and how, through the use of identity analytics and User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), you can install the perfect fire prevention and fire detection tools to get fire safety right.

Panel | Overcoming vulnerabilities around Human Factors
Nov 10, 2022

Human factors continue to be a weak link in enterprise defence strategies. This panel session will explore vulnerabilities around human factors and will look into security initiatives that have a valuable impact on the ability of enterprises to mitigate risk and optimize their cybersecurity program.

Smart threat defense thanks to AI-powered threat intelligence and security awareness training
Nov 16, 2023

Learn why the use of artificial intelligence (AI) through threat actors makes a "new security awareness" on the user side essential.


Key areas of focus:

- How can AI-based approaches increase the effectiveness of security awareness campaigns?

- Which security awareness measures have been proven to increase your security without spending a lot of resources?

- How does Threat Intelligence and Security Awareness as-a-Service work?


The speakers will show you how AI in threat intelligence and security awareness campaigns strengthen your threat protection!

Benjamin T. Schlabs - Embracing the Human Factor
Dec 12, 2019

IT security departments are no longer just responsible for securing digital assets and appliances. They must - with equal priority - help create a secure environment that inspires productivity and empowers employees to innovate.

In this talk, we discuss challenges faced by large enterprises around embracing the Human Factor (security awareness, phishing / social engineering, password hygiene/policies, etc.). We also share insights into how key security indicators such as overall vulnerability levels and basic security hygiene can be measured and compared across organizations, industries, and countries.

We introduce our approach to prioritizing IT security initiatives that have the most valuable immediate impact on hackability and discuss some common mistakes that can be easily fixed at little or no cost

The Human Factor: Why people are the main key to cybersecurity?
Nov 16, 2023

When it comes to cybersecurity, many people focus on red/blue teams and technical measures such as servers, firewalls, encryption, and intrusion prevention systems. However, one crucial factor that is often overlooked is the human factor. All of these technical measures will count for nothing when it comes to matter of insider threats. Even the most robust cybersecurity measures can be rendered ineffective by social engineering threats.

In this keynote, I will present several use cases to demonstrate why it is essential to consider the human factor in any organization’s cyber threat landscape.
