Infosecurity Europe

Conference Theme

Infosecurity Europe 2022’s theme, Stronger Together, shines a spotlight on the need for cybersecurity professionals to become more collaborative in their efforts to keep society safe and secure. To support this message, the event will explore several pertinent topics across several stages:

Keynote Stage: will explore current threats and adversaries including the importance of building a security culture, the paradigm change in ransomware, monetisation of threats, insider threats, Cybercrime-as-a-Service (CaaS), third party risk, how cyber criminals are changing their approaches, and improving the detection of known and unknown threats.

Insight Stage: will provide visitors with the chance to engage in critical discussions, exchange ideas and expertise, and equip themselves with new strategies and techniques.

Talking Tactics theatre: will offer real-world case studies to provide practical and actionable knowledge on how to keep up with the increasing sophistication of security threats. Additionally, Infosecurity Europe has also teamed up with NotSoSecure this year to provide formal cybersecurity training courses live on the show floor for the first time.
