Cybersecurity matters continue to confuse and befuddle governments, businesses, and users at large today. Compounding the issue is the fact that the conversation is constantly evolving. In 2017, the keyword in the industry was ransomware. This year, IoT-related attacks and GDPR have taken over as the hottest topics. In an ecosystem where things change almost every day, it is essential that government officials and companies keep themselves informed of the latest discussions in cybersecurity.
This year's CLOUDSEC provides a platform for different parties in the ecosystem to mingle and learn from each other, be it the latest threats or the newest cybersecurity technologies. Only by exchanging experience and knowledge can we move forward as an industry. Here are 9 reasons why CLOUDSEC 2018 is the cybersecurity event of the year.
1. Are you afraid to connect? Fear not!
This year's theme is Freedom to Connect, in line with the rapid developments in IoT, artificial intelligence, and more.
