The event16th International InfoSec & Data Storage Conference
„Collaboration at the Basis of Critical Data Protection”
28-29 September 2017, Sofia Hotel Balkan
Organizers: ICT Media & ISACA-Sofia Chapter
In the partnership with the Ministry of Defence, State Agency for National Security, State e-Government Agency
The development of ICT has changed the nature of modern society. The Internet is now the place where critical infrastructure and services of state organizations and businesses are concentrated. The impact of technology on social, public, economic and cultural life is steadily increasing, and this leads to newly evolved and difficult to detect threats. There are various security tools and the structural philosophy of the organization as well as the approaches for its protection are of vital importance.
In July 2016, the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Bulgaria adopted the National Cyber Security Strategy. A new memorandum for cooperation with NATO in the field of cyber security was signed at the end of October 2016, which formalized the process of information sharing and expert assistance. Through joint efforts of government bodies with professional circles, the academic community and the business, and in dialogue with consumers, Bulgaria can achieve an enviable level of cyber security. Risks to information have always existed and will continue to exist thus prevention should become the basic principle of every organization. Public-private partnership is the mechanism by which all stakeholders can actively engage: the interaction between all the representatives of society, state, citizens, business and academia.
The conference is aimed at IT managers and experts from all segments of the economy:
- * Directors and Managers "Information Security";
* Managers of Risk Management;
* Infrastructure managers;
* System architects;
