GDPR has been on every Information Security professional’s mind for what feels like forever but finally the new legislation has come into play. There has been a lot of speculation about the aftermath and with complaints filed against leading tech corporations in the first week it is evident the new regulations are being taken very seriously. It is important for all organisations to be compliant, or as compliant as they can be.
Hackers are showing no sign of retreat and are beginning to use AI and machine learning to outsmart defence systems. Whilst legacy systems are still in place in many organisations and others moving whole systems and networks to the cloud – hackers can take advantage of weak points in the structure and gain access with ransomware remaining a common threat. Phishing attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and there are still stories published regularly about Executives falling into the trap. Not only are CISOs having to monitor the insider threat but they are also still struggling with a skills gap in the industry with limited qualified professionals in the workforce.
However, it is not all doom and gloom for CISOs – awareness is increasing at board level about the importance of investing in security which is leading to profound change and transformation within the industry and it is more important than ever for CISOs to share experiences and solutions to these growing threats.

I am excited to introduce ASIS Europe 2019 – From Risk to Resilience
Today’s enterprise is connected, complex and global. Securing innovation and competitive advantage requires simultaneously protecting people, information, products, and property. Rapid, interconnected change, and shifting perceptions of risk and value are key challenges for us as security practitioners.
Our programme is designed to provide unique insights to help you, your teams and your organisation. We will examine evolving security challenges from the perspective of leaders tasked with protecting their organisation’s reputation and most precious assets in a manner that drives business, organisational and cultural goals.
I look forward to welcoming you to Rotterdam.

From fledgling startups to established industry, the The Netherlands is home to a large, vibrant technology community. Amsterdam, in particular, has been a flurry of activity in the past several years, drawing attention from around the globe.
devopsdays Amsterdam brings development, operations, QA, InfoSec, management, and leadership together to discuss the culture and tools to make better organizations and products. The 2019 event will be the fifth time we have held devopsdays Amsterdam, and it should be bigger and better than ever before!
We expect 500 people this year and will be holding the event on June 26-29, 2019 at the Pakhuis de Zwijger in downtown Amsterdam.
The format of devopsdays Amsterdam includes a single track of 30 minute talks in the morning of each event, followed by Ignite talks (5 minute, auto forwarding). We spend the rest of the afternoon in Open Spaces, which are considered a key portion of the event. For those not interested in the Open Spaces, we continue offering the single track around a specific theme (previously around Security and HumanOps).
