How to protect against DDoS attacks?Optimal backup strategies for ransomware incidentsTips for vulnerability managementRisks and potential from ChatGPT & Co.Modern end device protection and Zero Trust philosophyNew framework conditions from NIS2
Know and defend against current threats
The fact that companies are insufficiently protected against cyber attacks can often be inferred from the current news. The threat is also increasing because the attackers are organized and the tools of the criminal organizations are becoming more professional and intelligent. The IT security day is therefore dedicated to advanced DDOS techniques and their defense, as well as backup strategies in successful ransomware attacks. AI is also not missing from the agenda: modern chatbots are suitable for generating malware, and deepfakes and phishing with better-quality emails are also an acute threat vector.
In order to be able to guarantee the attack surface in your own IT landscape, even with distributed work and under BYOD concepts, the philosophy and mechanisms of Zero Trust are ideal: never trust, always check. With NIS2, companies from KRITIS sectors are currently facing new framework conditions that need to be implemented. Here, too, the IT Security Day provides an overview of the requirements.
