From 25 to 28 September 2018, Security Essen at Messe Essen will be the meeting place for the international security and fire protection industry. According to the current Cyber Security Report of the consulting company Deloitte, 83 percent of the surveyed companies report at least one attack per month on their company. In half of these companies there is even a daily alarm - with a total annual damage sum of around 13 billion euros. That's why Security Essen is setting standards with a targeted focus on digital security. In the new Cyber Security Conference, experts will pass on their knowledge about this ever more pressing challenge.
On all four days of the fair, the Cyber Security Conference will offer listeners concrete knowledge transferable to their own companies about the current challenges and potential of Cyber Security. The programme opens and closes on September 25 and 28 with the main topic ‘Opportunities and Risks of Cyber Security’. On September 26, discussions and lectures will follow on the topic of ‘Entry, admission, access: Identification options’. The portfolio will be rounded off by a further topic for the future: Thursday, September 27, will be dedicated to smart homes and will focus on ‘Connected building, security in the buildings of the future’.
Expert discussion on cyber security
Dr. Timo Kasper from Kasper & Oswald analyses the dangers in the area of radio, RFID and access systems and presents the necessary defence mechanisms
Among the top-class speakers will be Arne Schönbohm, President of the Federal Office for Information Security, who will talk about cyber security as a challenge for politics, business and society. Tilman Frosch from G DATA Advanced Analytics will talk about the defence of medium-sized IT infrastructures. Dr. Timo Kasper from Kasper & Oswald analyses the dangers in the area of radio, RFID and access systems and presents the necessary defence mechanisms.
With Brian Niehöfer, an employee of TÜV Informationstechnik (TÜViT) talks about the IT security of smart meter gateways. The focus of the lecture by Oliver Woll and Jörg Schulz from VZM will be on securing the availability of IT infrastructures.
Conference for educating visitors
The conference will flank Security Essen's even stronger orientation towards digital security. For the first time there will be a separate exhibition hall for this area, prominently located directly at the new East Entrance. The Cyber Security Conference will also take place there.
"This will give trade visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to obtain information close to the fair and right in the middle of the action. After all, the conference should bring them the best possible benefit. It is important to us that the presentations are user-related and that the audience receives valuable suggestions," explains Julia Jacob, Project Manager of the Security Essen. The fair organises the conference in cooperation with the BHE Federal Association of Security Technology and with the technical support of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
