Digital security technology brings more comfort but, amongst many manufacturers and users, also raises the question of unwanted attacks by data thieves. The door system with video-based access checking, the fire alarm controllable using an app or also the house technology connected to the control room - how can the data arising here be protected in the best possible way? The world's leading fair for civil security with its own Cyber Security Conference will provide information about these things. Here, attention will focus on transferring knowledge and exchanging experience on all four days of Security Essen. From now on, experts have the opportunity to submit their applications for lectures relating to all aspects of the subject areas called "Chances & Risks of Cyber Security", "Connected Building - Security in the Building of the Future" as well as "Admission, Access and Attack - Possibilities for Identification".
The conference will flank the even stronger orientation of Security Essen towards digital security. For the first time, this area will have its own fair hall, prominently placed directly at the new East Entrance. The Cyber Security Conference will take place there, too. "Thus, trade visitors and exhibitors will have the possibility of obtaining information close to the fair and in the middle of the happenings. After all, the conference should yield the best possible benefits for them. It is important to us that the lectures are formulated in a user-related way and the listeners receive valuable stimuli," explained Julia Jacob, Head of Project for Security Essen. Messe Essen is organising the conference in cooperation with BHE Federal Association for Security Technology and with the specialist support of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
Attention-Grabbing Conference in the Middle of the Happenings at the Fair
In a way close to practice, the planned lectures will deal with situations relating to all aspects of digital security. In the subject area called "Chances & Risks of Cyber Security", it is intended to provide information about smart cities, KRITIS, IT security on computers, manufacturer-neutral solutions in the cloud as well as cloud services. The lecture series entitled "Connected Building - Security in the Building of the Future" will focus on the subjects of smart metering, the Internet of Things, the safeguarding of interfaces, dynamic escape route control as well as biometry. The third main focal point of the Cyber Security Conference will relate to the digital possibilities for identification such as the wireless technologies of Bluetooth / NFC, biometry or cryptography.
From now on, experts, lateral thinkers, developers or scientists are being invited to apply to be speakers for the Cyber Security Conference at Security Essen 2018. At https://www.security-essen.de/impulsgeber/programm/cyber-security-konferenz/, any interested parties can submit brief abstracts.
