LU-CIX has announced details about the 5th edition of the Luxembourg Internet Days, an ICT event from the sector, for the sector that is being held on 13 - 14 November in Luxembourg-Kirchberg at the Chambre de Commerce.
In line with the previous successful editions, the Luxembourg Internet Days will explore, with its inimitable technical and pragmatic approach, two very sensitive topics, extremely relevant to the ICT sector’s vital security and trust requirements: “Network Security and Monitoring” on 13 November and “Cloud Security” on 14 November.
This year, Estonia will be put under the spotlight throughout the event. Estonia has recently made headlines in news outlets by announcing its first ever Data Embassy, to be based in Luxembourg. There couldn’t be a single project more emblematic and fitting with the two themes chosen for this year’s Luxembourg Internet Days! On the first day, Mr Sikkut, CIO of the Estonian government, will be travelling specially to share the nation’s views on cybersecurity demand at a state level. The same day, key sector experts such as Kentik, Netscout or Cybexer will unveil the next step for Network Security, panel discussions will create interactive debates around how security strata may have to cluster to keep protecting against evolving threats, and another discussion will treat how to apply the new NIS Directive. CIRCL’s experts will give an open workshop to help professionals strengthen knowledge on cybersecurity.
The afternoon will end with the Luxembourg Network Operator Group (LUNOG) launch event, with keynote presentations from RIPE NCC and LINX, followed by a cocktail. The LUNOG initiative aims to be the Community for Network Operators willing to foster free exchanges and its sole purpose is to support people working for ICT in Luxembourg.
The second day will focus on Cloud Security. Trendsetting companies such as AWS will join in to share their vision and discuss the different security level in an Age of Dark Data and Shadow IT. GDPR will also be treated both with an unusual angle during a panel discussion with Microsoft, and during a workshop given by the law firm MNKS to allow attendees to ask any questions and have an open discussion to share experiences and methodologies. Luxembourg House of FinTech (LHoFT) will animate a 2-hour session open to companies of any size from the finance sector to help them sort all IT matters out. The detailed event programme will be available by mid-October.
As always, the 50-booth Expo area will offer visitors a chance to meet with a large number of solution providers and to discover new players. A zone will be dedicated to Estonian companies offering state of the art solutions.
