DIKU Business Club event about IT Security – University of Copenhagen

DIKU Business Club event about IT Security

Join us for an interesting seminar in DIKU Business Club featuring IT Security. The talk is open to all interested people.

At this meeting or seminar we will focus on IT Security from various perspectives.

What threats - and at what level - are we to expect in the future - and how can we prepare ourselves and cope with them? We have invited a number of exciting speakers from public and private organisations who will give their perspectives on important focus areas. What do our researchers focus on? How does Center for Cybersecurity handle the national perspective? Lessons learned in a global organisation that has had a taste of it. We wrap all this up with a final panel debate.

Participation is free, but registration is required. Use the registration form on the right side of this page. The program will be conducted in English, if there are non-Danish-speaking audience. Part of the talks will definitely be in English and at a high technical level.
