The Cloud: a tool to skyrocket your company into the next digital, AI and IOT generation. Add ‘DevOps’ to this sentence and you have about 99% of todays IT conference-topics covered. And still, many companies use the Cloud as a static and passive tool; a closet in which you store all your stuff. However, when you take advantage of the Cloud, it becomes a platform that will help you develop, innovate and accelerate your time to market. Just as Cloud, DevOps is not something you implement in one day. It’s a huge transformation, which takes a lot of time and everybody’s commitment. So, let’s forget the buzzwords and the fuzzy theory and look at how to put Cloud into practice.

'The end of the world as we know it? How to tackle security risks in Internet of Things'
The Internet of Things or IoT has been widely publicised by the media over recent years. The integration of IT, OT and IoT poses unique challenges to security leaders. Ranging from email spamming fridges to the end of the world as we know it. The reality is, we face a situation where some devices are becoming internet enabled just because they can. At the same time, we adopt internet devices with little thought of our data, because they offer accessing something in a way that makes it easier for us. So how will we deal with the "Internet of Threats"?

It's time to start winning the war: Offensive defense strategies, kicking ass on your own turf.
Tired of chasing bad guys after an incident? Curious to see how to make a hacker cry those fabled unicorn rainbow tears whilst he's trying to make sense of it all? In this presentation we'll discuss topics like how to apply tsun tzu's good old fashioned art of war to the field of cybersecurity, because that's what it is: A war. Not just any war, but one that the defensive side has been losing over and over again. But no longer, it's payback time!

Presentation: Helping Small Business to get Secured and Certified
Protecting data and information systems is a real challenge for the small businesses. They do not have the financial enablers like big companies do. The result is an overall poor security level and an increased risk for the data of the small enterprises and their customers. In case of incident, it often places the survival of the company in doubt. PROCSIMA is a member of the Cyber Security Community of the INFOPOLE which acts under the governmental sponsorship of the ADN (Agence Du Numérique). Our community moves on towards offering a way for small businesses to get help by accredited experts and obtain a cyber security certification.
