Cybersecurity profs choose The Hague for pan-EMEA Secure Summit

(ISC)², the world’s largest non-profit membership association of certified cybersecurity professionals, is to bring its Secure Summit EMEA, 15-16 April 2019, to the World Forum in The Hague.

Organisers of the two-day event expect to welcome over 400 visitors, who will discuss topics including privacy, cybercrime, cloud, incident response and forensics, and professional development.

“The Hague is the International City of Peace, Justice and Security and we are thrilled that such a large international cybersecurity event is coming here,” said Bas Schot, Head of Congresses and Events at The Hague Convention Bureau.

“The Hague has established itself as a major hub for cyber security in Europe, which is demonstrated by the presence of the European Cybercrime Centre Europol (EC3), the National Cyber Security Centre, NATO Communications and Information Agency and a wide range of cyber security businesses. In addition, the city is also home to The Hague Security Delta (HSD), the leading security cluster in Europe,” Schot added.

The two-day main conference agenda and one-day pre-conference workshops on 14 April will be delivered by real-world practitioners from within the (ISC)² membership, which comprises over 140,000 certified professionals around the world, alongside academic, government and subject-matter experts that are driving priorities in security today.

The keynote speeches will be delivered by: Felicity Aston MBE, British Polar Explorer; Joseph Carson, Chief Security Scientist & Advisory CISO, Thycotic; Dr Jessica Barker, Co-Founder, Cygenta and Lorna Trayan, Strategy Leader at IBM Security Services.

Confirmed highlights include a simulation workshop where attendees can work through a real-world GDPR data breach.

The professional development track features sessions on “positive security” and its benefits to application security in the workplace, implementing agile crisis and continuity management and a look at the psychology of a hacker.

ISC² celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and is known for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®).
