From Secure to Trusted: A Journey to Digital Leadership


This new decade has already provided many lessons. One is that the mantra “never let a good crisis go to waste” could have been written for the cybercriminal fraternity. Another is that the concept of digital trust is rapidly becoming a business imperative in the digital era. At the heart of all this, as always, is security: the critical barrier between data integrity and compromise; and a fundamental building block for digital trust.

But trust encompasses so much more. From privacy and compliance to sustainability; from ecommerce to trusted ecosystems; and from ethics and transparency to brand reputation and loyalty.

Engendering digital trust is a business imperative, but it requires leadership and governance from board level to ensure that it becomes part of the very fabric of the business.

Staying in control of your growing attack surface

Ronald Pool

Cyber Security Specialist, CrowdStrike

While your attack surface keeps growing and complexity rises on the defensive side, it seems to get easier for attackers to launch cyberattacks and get new tools at their disposal.

So where should you focus your energy? How can you simplify security, without actually sacrificing visibility, productivity or flexibility?
Will your tools detect and stop any malicious activity? Or do you still need human intelligence? And how much of that human intelligence can you have in-house?

These business challenges and more will be addressed in our session "Staying in control of your growing attack surface


Resilient Endpoint Security

Anna Josefson

Country Category Manager, HP

70% of all cyberattacks start with the endpoint, the ever so increasing number of connected devices. Devices guarded by humans with other things than cybersecurity on their minds. The sooner the protection steps in the smaller the damage will be. HP has a long history of using our hardware to build resilient security solutions to stop the attacker directly. This has now been developed further through the newly announced Wolf Pro Security solutions, a vendor agnostic isolation service. We're using the combination of hardware based on solutions, our advantage of scaled information and deep learning state of the art solutions. 


In the world of cyber threats, you can’t predict, but you can prepare.

Dr Saritha Arunkumar

Executive Security Advisor, IBM

Är identitet den nya säkerhetsperimetern?

Jean Diarbakerli

Strategic Security Advisor, Trend Micro

Zero Trust är ett missförstått modeord gärna används som etikett på alla typer av säkerhetslösningar, utan att riktigt förstå att det handlar om en strategi för att angripa it-säkerhet. Vilka komponenter ingår i denna filosofi som säkerhetsteamen kan – och bör – leva efter, och med identiteten i fokus, hur mäter man förtroende?


Migration to cloud needs intrinsic security to safeguard business gains

Zachary Warren

Senior Director of Cybersecurity Advisory, Tanium

How Bug Bounty and Ethical Hackers keeps us safe

Mats Ögren

Head of Nordics, YesWeHack

Organizations are facing an increase in cyber attacks and a steadily increasing attack surface, at the same time as they are experiencing a lack of cyber security skills. To address more with less, they enlist the help of ethical hackers and include them in their long-term cyber security plans. How, and why does this arrangement work?
