‘Blurred Boundaries: Clear Risks’ announced as conference theme for ASIS Europe 2018

The conference theme for ASIS Europe 2018, which runs from 18-20 April 2018 in The Hague, The Netherlands, will be ‘Blurred Boundaries: Clear Risks’. Under the expert guidance of event chairman Eduard Emde CPP CISSP, the conference will expand on some of the key questions raised at this year’s event around securing connected enterprises in the era of the Internet of Things with a clear focus on the role of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, while at the same time also providing up-to-date risk outlooks, Case Studies and analysis across the full range of key security management issues.

According to Emde: “Through the blurring of boundaries, security and risk aspects become more diffuse, more complex and unpredictable. This event is designed to help security professionals know how risks can be assessed and acted on effectively, not in disclaimers or legal arrangements, but rather by having the actual risk owner and users making informed decisions.”

The event website (www.asiseurope.org) has already been updated with an outline of the programme and details of an initial group of speakers. Three Masterclasses will provide attendees with ‘deep dives’ into some of the most complex emerging challenges facing security practitioners today.

The ‘From Risk to Resilience’ event format launched in Milan back in March will be repeated, with its informative mix of conference content, training, technology and solutions, an exhibition and a Careers Centre.

Following on from ASIS Europe 2017, Radek Havlis CPP (regional security director for central and Eastern Europe at PwC and a member of the ASIS Board of Directors) stated: “Given the various formats it offered, the increased interaction among participants and, most importantly, its cyber-physical focus, ASIS Europe 2017 wasn’t just another industry event, but rather a true learning experience. I look forward to seeing it evolve into the annual European security event to attend. Nobody else covers such a span of topics and in such a professional way.”

In parallel to announcing the theme, the Call for Presentations has also been opened by ASIS. Click here for further information: https://asis.confex.com/asis/euro2018/cfs.cgi
