Key note speech
The EU is pushing ahead Digital Transformation trying to catch up with big players such as the US and China. Challenges ahead include completion of the EU digital single market, the role of cyber-security in geo-politics and the importance of investments and new partnerships in current volatile global dynamics. Is the EU going in the right direction? Is cybersecurity helping or limiting business & cooperation beyond Europe? Are smart cities fostering new battlefields or places for testing new solutions.
Higher Education and Scientific Research
Is the digital transition beyond smart-cities opening the gate to a new level of cyber-attacks? Safety, security and privacy represent some of key challenges and vulnerabilities for cybersecurity. This is especially relevant when smart-cities deal with big data, 5G and IoT. Are logistics, public transport, energy and water supplies and health-related services at risk? Which solutions and knowledge are required by administrators, businesses and communities? Can Smart-cities prevent cyber-attacks, while protecting and respecting citizens rights? Which partnerships and cooperation models are needed?

Industries are at the forefront of digital transformation with huge capital and technological investments. However, relying more and more on digital processes and automation makes industries vulnerable to cyber attacks on a scale unseen before. Industry 4.0. will also change the cybersecurity landscapes, but how? What are the main risks industries face today and how do they address future threats in terms of products, processes and people?

Protection of valuable infrastructural data and patient records – the need for robust digital safeguarding in a digital world
As the world are shifting to becoming completely digital in many industries, and the amount of data created in the world in the last two years, surpasses the total amount created of data in history, the questions around how do protect these data not only for tomorrow but also for the future becomes prominent. This case study presentation will look closer at the challenges of keeping digital information completely secure, authentic and not in the risk of being tampered or lost using examples from digital archiving to protect and safeguard patient journals in Norway as well as critical infrastructure information in Slovakia.
Cyber-security technology is evolving so rapidly that often large organisations are not able to move swiftly enough to adapt and follow the changes brought by disruptive innovation. This is where startups and small businesses offer the agility and adaptability to provide the cutting-edge solutions required to stay competitive. One side of the story is that innovators, social hackers and start-ups are the ones pushing innovation in industry 4.0. and cyber-security solutions to new frontiers, the other one is that SMEs make up 99.8% of European enterprises but they are unprepared for cyber-attacks...

Deep learning in medicine & creation of accurate anatomical models for 3D printing
Medical images have an unfathomable potential to better the quality of healthcare and in turn the quality of our lives. Some of the information can be already captured by looking at the images themselves. In this talk we will explore the use of deep learning to extract anatomically accurate models usable for teaching or therapy planning. We will see the necessary pieces that can transform the life-less images into real-life models. And who knows, one day we might even have spare parts to choose from.

Managing GDPR requests effectively
As a law firm, we understand that dealing with GDPR requests in a traditional way is not effective. Unclear requests force the controller to guess what the data subject might be requesting which might lead to unwanted liability. This guessing is removed with our software solution that guarantees absolute legal certainty about which rights as per GDPR the data subject really enforces. Roger guides and educates data subjects when submitting their requests via interactive widget and subsequently allows the controller to manage any number of GDPR requests in an inbox environment desiged around GDPR’s requirements and processes. Roger that.
