Protecting sensitive information in a dangerously world
The modern enterprise spends millions of dollars on cyber security, yet the CISO can’t say in any specific detail what information is entering and leaving the firm. Everyday workflows, where employees exchange sensitive information with external parties expose the firm to constant threats, including leaks, phishing, malicious files, and compliance violations.
The goal of this roundtable is to discuss how to protect sensitive information at rest, in transit and in use. Let’s share the different experiences around the challenges of transparency, control and security in the exchange of sensitive information in compliance with regulations.

He likes applying his analytical skills and technical creativity to deliver solutions for complex projects with high levels of uncertainty. Klaus is a Computer Science graduate from TU Kaiserslautern (Germany) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and publishes frequently articles reflecting his work experience in the IT industry.

Data-driven Organizations: What’s new for information security?
With data being the new oil, IT and information security organizations have to reinvent themselves. Old-fashioned security mechanisms such as anti-virus software, firewalls, access control, and physical security remain important. However, new technologies such as big data and data lakes pose new technological as well as compliance, process, and reputational challenges. In other words: Companies have to learn how to secure the “new oil”, i.e., their data and information, as good as possible while enabling the business to innovate by providing smooth and dynamic access to information when needed.

This round table discussion is an opportunity to share your experiences, to ask your questions, and to learn from your peers.

Patrick Schramböck, Director at Falcom Private Bank
Patrick Schramböck is security officer since more than 10 years in information security. His master thesis was about security in computer networks and he specialized himself in crypto architecture & security since 2016. Last project was setting up a new crypto custody solution for the bank, which has been audited in december last year. He is working in different crypto projects to make cryptos usable for banks since this area offers new options and threats in comparison to traditional banking services.
