The ongoing digital revolution paves the way for a multitude of new, innovative business ideas and models. Companies at the forefront of this movement have great competitive advantages, but are also increasingly vulnerable to cyber threats and attacks. Being aware of potential threats and how these can efficiently be alleviated is essential. Luxinnovation is pleased to invite you to an event on practical cybersecurity measures for any company whose innovation activities have a digital dimension.

A hacker that takes over the control of an autonomous vehicle… An industrial company whose whole production chain is brought to a standstill by a cyber-attack… Sensitive patient data that is stolen from a health tech company… Disastrous events that can have very severe consequences for the companies involved and even risk human lives. And not only major, well-known companies are concerned: even the innovations of start-ups and smaller firms can be the targets of cyberattacks.

Being aware of the risks and existing threats is a first step towards safeguarding your company. This event will provide you with the latest information about cyber risks and different types of attacks. You will also learn about how these can be mitigated with the help of existing tools and the institutional help available in Luxembourg to increase your cybersecurity. Business practitioners will share their experience and provide tips and tricks on how to increase your security level.

With a particular focus on the fields of automotive industry, health technologies and Industry 4.0, this event is open for company decision makers as well as for IT experts. The event is organised as part of the Cybersecurity Week 2019.
