Cybersecurity Strategy and Transformation
Digitalization, Industry 4.0, Cloud Computing – Many organizations prepare for or are aligning the organization to its digital future. What about the security departments? What does transformation mean for the security organization? What are the building blocks of a modern security architecture?

This presentation is about rethinking and aligning the security strategy to increase resilience of an organization in a modern business environment and addressing the actual threat landscape.

6:00 – 6:30 Pascal Reiniger, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Kanton Basel-Stadt

Approaches for the implementation of a new cybersecurity strategy
Cybersecurity is currently “en vogue” and the top managers are keen to know the current status of cybersecurity in their organizations. The CISO’s are charged with ensuring cybersecurity and security consultants are in high demand. However what exactly does cybersecurity really mean? Where are possible starting points to evaluate and improve the state of cybersecurity in an organization?

In this presentation, we will look at a possible approach to evaluate the state of cybersecurity, what obstacles you might encounter and how to implement improvements.

6:30 – 7:00 Marcello Bellini, Member of the Board, IT Security Manager, Operations & IT at Baloise Insurance

Cybersecurity Revolution – New Threats, New Strategies
Cybersecurity is changing the field of information security and creating new threats, but also the creation of new opportunities. Due to the changing threat landscape reorganizations must adopt their strategies.
