THE STATE OF SECURITY

Sjømagasinet, Oslo

Tuesday 14th May

18:30 – 21:30 CEST

“Without strong foundational security capabilities and controls within their cybersecurity programs, organizations will be exposed to risks brought on by their technology investments.”

– Mckinsey, 2024

The digital age demands a reimagined approach to cybersecurity. An approach that is agile, intelligent, and capable of responding to an ever-changing threat landscape. The combination of advanced analytics, AI, and greater boardroom visibility promises a security infrastructure that is not just reactive but predictive and adaptive.

 

What is becoming rapidly apparent, however, is that the truly modern security approach currently remains out of reach for too many. To truly future-proof their organisations, security leaders have to navigate a number of challenging questions:

 

– Is it possible to measure risk, and will you be able to strike a balance between resilience and agility?

– Will you be able to navigate the vast amounts of siloed data to get a single view of all exposures, both in cloud and on-premises?

– Can you validate and prioritise vulnerabilities against risk in a continuously scaling digital environment?

 

It is estimated that by 2025, annual cybercrime costs will reach $10.5 trillion [McKinsey, 2023]. So, what strategies and technological innovations should cybersecurity leaders embrace to prepare their organisation for the challenges of today, and tomorrow?

ATTENDEES

Senior decision makers and other top-executives with a focus on technology, transformation and information security, working within some of the largest organisations in The UK.

With over 1,100 patents and a culture of innovation, we’ve stayed one step ahead of our customers’ needs. Today, many of the world’s largest and most complex organisations, such as Tesco, Specsavers, Gatwick Airport, McLaren, Vodafone and Bank of England, rely on Splunk to keep their mission-critical systems secure and reliable.

THE VENUE

 

SJØMAGASINET
Tjuvholmen Allé 14, 0252 Oslo, Norway

 

Sjømagasinet is located on Tjuvøya, right on the waterfront overlooking the vast fjord. A complete concept with a restaurant, wine bar, function room and fish shop, the airy and modern style provides both quality and flexibility in the dining experience. Lobsters and crabs in tanks that look like they are made of driftwood attract curious eyes in the restaurant, while the tables with white linen tablecloths light up and the floor-to-ceiling windows provide sparkling views of the water.

 

The restaurant’s name means ‘sea shop’, and the menus showcase the best seafood Norway has to offer. Chef Karel Svec and his team are inspired by local and sustainable ingredients, delivering an exciting and modern taste experience.
