The 8th edition of the CyberCentral Summit, organized by EBCG – European Business Conferences Group in Prague, Czech Republic, took place on 11-13 April 2018. I attended this event as a speaker, representative of Romanian Association of Information Security Assurance and also as an expert of the Cybercrime Excellence Center in Cybercrime.

Running for the 8th year in a row, CyberCentral is devoted to bringing together leading experts across the IT and cybersecurity sectors. It is a forum for practitioners and influential presenters from the industry to exchange information, ideas, business stories and hands-on practical solutions to problems common within the profession. In Prague, more than 100 attendees gathered to make good use of the presentations, the workshops and the strategic case study analysis, along with lectures focused on the technical aspect of things. The program was structured along three streams that attendees could choose from, making it selecting which events to attend that much easier. The streams included a summit one, a technical one and a strategic one, each tailored according to the needs of the participants and the presenters. More than 30 speakers helped industry leaders better prepare for 2018 by delivering 37 strategic and technical solutions within the 3 days of the conference.

During this summit, I organized a 4-hour workshop entitled “Social Engineering on a Corporate Scale” as an expert of the Cybercrime Excellence Center in Cybercrime. The workshop was supported by presentations, practical demonstrations and exercises, thus contributing to better training of professionals in Europe to investigate cyber attacks.

The event addressed public authorities and institutions in Europe, IT&C service and IT service providers, personal data processing companies, online trading companies, financial services companies, and cyber security consultants.
Attendees were also able to listen to David Hitchcock, an FBI expert, and Rastislav Janota, a member of the Management Board of the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security, as well as watch a live demonstration by Tobias Schrödel, also known as Germany’s – and probably the world’s best – IT comedian, who explains technical flaws in unparalleled and relatable manner.
