The biggest cyber security awareness event in Romania

We draw several lessons from the 2014 edition, thank to all the written feedbacks we received. As you know, our event will remain a non-marketing, non technical one, opened to everyone. Nevertheless, our wish is to answer most of the suggestions and demands made to us.

1. Specialists with specialists, off the records: the post-congress day

Following the demand of the highest Romanian and International Gov. representatives, we added a post-congress closed-doors day, enabling government law-enforcement representatives, analysts and private sector representatives to go more in-depth on some subjects.

2. A little less speakers, yet better quality thanks to largest slots for each speaker, and an increased attendance

Following most of the speaker’s suggestions, we do not want to get bigger, yet we want to raise quality. This means we desire to have less speakers from each institution/company, who, in counterpart, will have more time to develop their message and to come back to it within the session or panel discussion led by the moderators. We aim to raise the number of attendees, not the speaker’s one, in the interest of both parts.

3. The biggest awareness-raising event ever made in Romania.

The pre-congress day, following an ITU but also a Romanian Institutional suggestion, will host the biggest awareness-raising event ever made in Romania, targeting from children to adults. We expect ca. 2500 attendees, and each partner is welcome to share with us its knowledge and skills with smart interventions or demos during the teenagers’ afternoon and the adults’ evening & night. During the day, SWA and its partners will do, as last year, a Decision-maker dedicated awareness-raising course.

4. Complying to the natural laws of market, we developed a whole list of proposals satisfying almost any private company need:

– “Innovation fair”

Replacing the traditional small stands proposed in the last editions, the huge entrance hall of the Casa de Cultura a Sindicatelor (where the big awareness-raising day as well as the plenary congress day will take place), will host a real fair, opened to the general public and lasting 5 days. During the plenary day, the fair will be accessible only to the participants of the congress. In this way, Private companies, but also NGOs and Academic structures will be able to interact with the broadest public possible as well as with the congress participants in a larger room, with all the space they desire for their stands, booths, demos etc. The fair will also comprise the press point, where partners will be able to deliver interviews to the local and national press, without taking time during the 2 congress days.

– “The pre-congress floor is yours”.

This special program, dedicated only to our partners, will allow the companies which desire it to use one or more of the 3 days preceding the congress to organize their own meeting, such as a VIP Clients event, an opened seminar for free or for fee, a specialized training. We will ask only a logistic fee for this service and we will prepare the event according to the partner’s exact demands (special restaurant, original location etc), the only win-win rule being that the invited participants to those events should also attend the congress.

Date: 29 Oct 2015

CyberSecurity Day powered by UTI aims to become the main point of reference for cyber security specialists wanting to learn about the latest research, technologies and best practice

Over the past few years the importance of cybersecurity has been brought in the global spotlight. With cyber attacks on the rise and an increased sofistication in targeted attacks and cyber espionage campaigns, it is highly important to learn how to identify and respond to weaknesses and prevent any attacks.

We live in an interconnected world, which faces a wide variety of globally-connected cyber threats. These threats are not restricted by geographical boundaries and are targeted at all technologies, hardware/software/service providers and users – consumers, the private and the public sector alike.

One in two CEOs is aware and concerned about the impact cyber risks can have to his business and most of them got their CIOs and CSOs closer to the executive level, recognizing their strategic importance.
In order to safely run a business, to secure the core processes, YOU NEED TO KNOW CYBER.

At CyberSecurityDay, an event included in the ENISA’s cyber security month series, you will learn about trends and technologies, technical solutions and security services you can use to address the cyber challenges.
