Thomas is going to host an interesting and informative event at Tink Tank Campbell on 18. April / 17:00 Uhr. It is an open event discussing Cybersecurity Transformation. Keep reading for more information about the event!
More and more companies and administrations are experiencing cyber attacks every day. In the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region, cases are described in the press on a weekly basis. The impact on business operations can be enormous.
Are you prepared? How do you deal with potential attack scenarios in your organization? How can you assess the scenarios and their impact for yourself? How do you create the necessary structures and processes so that your team can respond as quickly as possible in the event of an emergency? These are all thoughts you should think about before an emergency occurs! Together, we would like to present impulses and core aspects of an adaptive defense and response system and enter into discussion with you.
Network with other participants, exchange experiences and let us together lay another building block for a resilient Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Invited are managing directors, IT managers, CIOs/CDOs/CISOs, and experts from the relevant departments.
