The 16th e-Crime & Cybersecurity DACH will take place online and will look at how cybersecurity teams, risk management functions and boards are tackling the key issues. As digitalisation goes critical, is this finally the moment at which traditional cybersecurity management has to change?

Digitalisation is not optional; the Cloud is unavoidable; business transformation is survival. Can CISOs maintain control?
The judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Ltd and Maximillian Schrems (Schrems II) is a wake-up call. Max Schrems’ privacy group, Noyb, has already filed 101 complaints with regulators across all EU member states against companies with major European websites using code from Facebook or Google, both of which transfer data to the U.S. for processing. And in the first sign of major action from an EU regulator, the Irish DPC has sent Facebook a preliminary order to suspend data transfers to the U.S.

Why attend?
In this new environment, cybersecurity professionals are facing a host of new threats.

Remote working, an increased reliance on cloud and SaaS, staff availability shortages, and the increase in targeted attacks against under-pressure staff are putting organisations around the world under even more strain.

At this challenging time, information-sharing and collaboration is crucial to our ability to defend systems and data against cybercriminals.
