Organized by Swiss Webacademy (Sibiu), P Finder Consult (Bucharest) and Association of Specialists in Business Intelligence (Bucharest), the Conference brings in the limelight the IT security concerns of Romanian Companies and Entrepreneurs. They will be the target audienceof the event, and their presence is encouraged both via presentation stands and by active involvement in workshops discussing predefined relevant topics.

The core topic of the Conference will be the prevention of cybernetic threats, recommended post-attack reactions as well as tools to be implemented as active or passive protection solutions against cyber-attacks, which affect all IT users, irrespective of whether they are representatives of State Institutions, NGOs or private companies.

The key success factor of the conference is the optimal mix of participants, including key players in the IT industry, heavy public and corporate users of IT solutions, relevant regulators as well as NGOs and intelligence research organizations.
