As cyber threats continue to evolve and become more sophisticated, it is becoming increasingly important for higher education institutions and governmental entities to stay ahead of the curve by implementing effective security information management strategies.
To help address these issues, the next GÉANT SIG-ISM meeting, set to take place on 3 and 4 May, 2023, in Trondheim – Norway, with support from the local NREN, SIKT, will again be focusing on the importance of security information management, and discussing valuable insights and actionable strategies to keep entities safer and more aware of cyber threats.
The event will feature a lineup of experienced speakers who will explore a range of topics relevant to Security Information Management. Among the key highlights of the agenda will be discussions on international projects and collaborations aimed at promoting cyber resilience and mitigating cyber risks. Attendees may learn about the latest initiatives and partnerships that are helping to tackle emerging cyber threats at a global level.
Another key topic that will be explored is the evolving risk and threat landscape. With cybercriminals increasingly targeting higher education institutions and governmental entities, we aim to address and share valuable insights into the latest techniques and tactics used by cybercriminals, as well as strategies to effectively mitigate risks.
Participants will also learn about how to prepare for the upcoming Network and Information Security (NIS2) directive. As Europe’s cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve, organizations must stay up to date with the latest regulations and guidelines to remain compliant and protected. This section will delve into the practical steps that entities can take to prepare for NIS2 and ensure they are well-equipped to handle the challenges that lie ahead.
Finally, the event will explore the importance of sharing agreements for cyber threat intelligence. Attendees will learn about the latest initiatives and partnerships that promote information sharing and collaboration between institutions and organizations. Through this, they will become more aware of the agreements that aim to facilitate the exchange of information on cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and best practices between parties, to better protect their respective networks and systems.
By sharing threat intelligence, organizations can collaborate more effectively to identify and respond to cyber-attacks in a timely and coordinated manner. Such partnerships can also help improve the overall cybersecurity postures and contribute to the development of a more secure cyberspace.
We hope to see all security management professionals and those interested in these current topics in Trondheim. Registrations are open at https://events.geant.org/e/SIG-ISM-Trondheim.
