19-06-2017 at 20:00 - 21:30

Recent attacks by ransomware such as WannaCry had a massive disruptive effect and these cyberattacks show the vulnerabilities in the current ICT-infrastructure. In this mini-symposium we will focus on how vital a proper cybersecurity strategy is in the Cyber(in)secure world of today! Not only is the cyberdomain in danger from hybrid threats, increasingly hackers use ransomware out of purely financial gain. Aided by currencies as bitcoin they can hide their tracks and quickly spread their viruses across large networks of computers.

In this mini-symposium Pieter Rogaar, a senior advisor at the National Cyber Security Centre, Marco Romagna, a lecturer & Researcher at the Centre Expertise Cyber Security and Sukalp Bhople, a cybersecurity consultant from KPMG, will give us insights in what the biggest threats are and what is done to defend against these threats.
