The conference theme for ASIS Europe 2018, taking place on 18-20 April 2018 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, will be "Blurred Boundaries - Clear Risks".
Under the guidance of conference chair, Eduard Emde, CPP, CISSP, the conference will expand on some of the key questions raised at this year's event around securing connected enterprises in the era of IoT, with a focus on the role of big data and artificial intelligence, whilst also providing up-to-date risk outlooks, case studies, and analysis across the full range of key security management issues.
According to Emde, "Through the blurring of boundaries, security and risk aspects become more diffuse, more complex and unpredictable. This event is designed to help security professionals know how risks can be assessed and acted on effectively - not in disclaimers or legal arrangements but by having the actual risk owner and users make informed decisions ".
The event website,
www.asiseurope.org, has already been updated with an outline of the programme and an initial group of speakers and panelists. Three masterclasses will provide attendees "deep dives" into some of the most complex emerging challenges facing security practitioners today.
The "From Risk to Resilience" event format launched in Milan in March this year will be repeated, with its informative mix of conference, training, technology and solutions, exhibition, and career centre.
As Radek Havlis, CPP, regional security director, Central and Eastern Europe for PwC and member of the ASIS Board of Directors, stated following this year's edition, "Given the various formats it offered, the increased interaction amongst participants, and, most importantly, its cyber-physical focus, ASIS Europe 2017 was not just another event but a true learning experience. I look forward to seeing it evolve into
the annual European security event to attend, as clearly, nobody else covers such a span and in such a professional way."
In parallel to announcing the theme, the call for presentations has also been opened,
