CEO chat: Reflections & predictions

The events of 2020 have left their marks on the development of digital innovations, tools, and threats. Rapid digitalisation, remote working, and several high-profile incidents have reshaped IT infrastructures, their security processes, and potential threats. 

The CEOs of Silobreaker, Intel471, and Cybersprint sit together to talk about their views on all things cybersecurity. Kristofer Mansson, Mark Arena, and Pieter Jansen discuss what they've learnt from last year's events - and what we can expect in 2021. 

  • How has ransomware become the top threat?
  • Is there still a clear distinction between cybercriminals and nation state actors?
  • How can you reduce third-party risk?
  • And what new threat intelligence strategies work best? 

They will go over incidents and events, the causes and implications, and - most importantly - the key takeaways. What does 2020 bode for 2021? What is worth investing in, and what approach will become obsolete? 

Register to join their conversation for a look at the past, and a glimpse of the future.
