IDC Security Roadshow 2017 is coming in Bucharest

Just one week until the new edition of IDC Security Roadshow, transforming Bucharest for one day in the Europen capital of cyber security. Reflecting the trend of recent years that attracted a multitude of border technologies in the hurricane of digital transformation, opening the Pandora’s Box for new threats of cyber security, this year edition of IDC Security Roadshow will focus on the information security issues in multi-platform era.

It is true, a lot of cyber security conferences were organised in the last period. And this is perfectly normal, thinking to the strategic importance of the field. If you still have doubts, if you are not yet clear that it is worth attending the IDC Roadshow, take a look at the event Agenda and you will see it worth it. The main security market trends in CEE will be analysed in the opening keynote ”Information Security in the Multi-Platform Era”, sustained by Mark Child, CEE Security Practice Lead at IDC CEMA. After that Gabriel Nicolăescu, Business Development Director at NOVATECH will conduct us in a CISO strange adventure in Alice (and Bob) In The New Wonderland. The misadventures of a CISO in the brave new world of…”

If I have not convinced you so far, maybe a hacking demonstration could be a good reason for you to postpone your business routines in another day and to come to the IDC Roadshow on June 8th. Come to assist two Senior Information Security Consultants Radu Stăneascu and Gabriel Avramescu in their “Live Demo Hacking.”

Are your organisations in a permanent search for solutions to consolidate your security infrastructure? See how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, presented by Puiu Leontescu, can help you to address your company cutting costs with superior security solution and an effective TCO.

Okay, you might say: ”maybe it’s worth writing at least for the first part of the conference, and after that, I go back to my office to resolve my affairs.” Don’t rush …, look again on the agenda and you will see that the themes approached by the two parallel sessions in the second half of the program will make you regret that you can not split into two. In this case, the ideal solution is to convince a colleague to come to the IDC Roadshow. So you will be able to participate each one at one breakout session and then share the information. These sessions will cover two subjects with a strategic role in any CSO activity: End-point defence and Data-Centric Security.

Guerrilla fights with cyber criminals never end, and it’s enough to think of the nightmare weekend created by WannaCry, described by Eugene Kaspersky as ”a ransomware with a very low code quality, and a lot of bugs that gives victims a chance to restore data using free utilities for file recovery”… End-point defence session will cover ”The WannaCry Impact” analysed by Mark Child from IDC, a Novatech Case Study presented by Marius Marinescu, CTO at Novatech, the last development brief ”Bitdefender – Trademark For Innovation!” made by Alex Balan, Chief Security Researcher, and another Case Study presented by Eusebiu Rotaru, Manager IT Infrastructure at Electrica Distribution.

Regulations achievement and standards compliance could be other nightmare reasons for a CIO or a CSO. And speaking about the new EU regulation concerning the personal data privacy (GDPR), the issues become more critical. Of course, you can think that GDPR is not your problem, but the company’s administrators and lawyers. Don’t think like this because in the new European regulation there is an important amount of specifications that directly target the technological and operational components in any organisation is managing personal data. And this should interest you directly. Don’t forget: until the implementation of the new EU Regulation 679/2016 (25 May 2018), we have less than one year… IDC invited Alexei Proskura – Security Program Director at IDC CEE, Catalina Dodu – Country Manager Atos IT Solutions and Services, Cristina Metea – Legal Advisor at Microsoft Romania, and Andreea Lisievici – Data Privacy Lawyer to discuss a critical issue related to EU Regulation compliance for any company is processing personal data.

So, hoping I already convinced you, don’t forget we have just one week until the event. All you have to do is to sign up on the special page created by IDC at
