Our lives are undergoing rapid change. With businesses forced to work from home, and customer behaviour evolving, security professionals are under growing pressure. Burnouts are understandably commonplace, and tensions within the cybersecurity field are rising.
An ever-demanding environment for cybersecurity professionals is worsened by blackmailers, terrorists - even hostile nation states. A rise in social engineering attacks, large scale third-party incidents, and constantly evolving human risk factors has resulted in security threats emerging as one of the most contemporary, prominent risks to businesses, civil society, and democracies; undermining the very fabric of our communities.
This is why Infosecurity Europe wants to nurture a knowledge-sharing culture. We are calling on information and cybersecurity professionals to cooperate. We must instil ethics, promote diversity, improve global talent, and design a world that is safer for all.
We envision a future that is dependable - built on strengthened international collaboration from governments, law enforcement and businesses. We all play a role in keeping our society secure. Together, we are stronger.
