The two-day congress ended with a usd AG Live Hacking session addressing “Cloud & Cyber Security”. Stephan Neumann and Matthias Göhring, usd HeroLab Pentest Professionals, demonstrated how easily unauthorized individuals can obtain access to or spy on third-party data.
Ronny John, Member of the Executive Board & Head of Security Consulting at usd AG, commented: “Digitization, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) were the dominant topics this year. The speeches and discussions made it very clear that technical innovations and the ever-increasing importance of information technology to companies bring about more and more challenges to information security and security awareness. Common procedures and methods must be questioned and adapted. To do that, a constant exchange between companies, security specialists and authorities is indispensable. usd AG is making its contributions through the CST Academy and its membership in the Alliance for Cyber Security of the German Federal Office for Information Security”.
