Technical Breakout Session



Strategic Breakout Session

by Freddy Dezeure, former Head of CERT EU – today CEO of Freddy Dezeure BVBA

Freddy Dezeure graduated in 1982 as Master of Science in Engineering. He was CIO of a private company from 1982 until 1987. He joined the European Commission in 1987 where he held a variety of management positions in administrative, financial and operational areas. He was COO of the EU’s Joint Research Centre for three years. He set up the EU Computer Emergency and Response Team (CERT-EU) for the EU institutions, agencies and bodies in 2011 and made it into one of the most mature and respected CERTs in Europe. Until May 2017 he held the position of the Head of CERT-EU. Presently, he is an independent management consultant providing strategic advice in cyber security and cyber risk management and acting as Board Member and Advisory Board Member in several high-tech companies. He is a recognized thought leader in cyber security, risk and privacy and is much in demand as a speaker.

Intelligence driven prevention and detection
The workshop will provide an overview of the recent developments in the threat landscape and how threat intelligence can support active management of prevention and detection. With adversaries becoming stealthier and adapting their infrastructure and techniques to evade detection we need to change gear in the way we make our observations of their behaviour more actionable. Furthermore, we need to advance our techniques to protect personal data and monitor leaks to comply with the GDPR and to protect our key assets.

The presentation will provide strategic insights as well as hands-on advice. It will be followed by extensive opportunity to interact with the speaker.

6:00 – open end Apéro Riche and Networking (so reserve as well the evening!)
The speakers will be onsite for Q&A
