The IT and Cybersecurity Leaders’ Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for Cybersecurity and IT leaders across Germany, Austria, & Switzerland

Hosted by Trustwave, the IT and Cybersecurity Leaders’ Roundtable was set up to offer an intimate online forum for senior IT leaders from prominent firms across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve all the wealth of experience from the senior peers.

The New IT Landscape after COVID-19

Over the past few weeks, everything has changed in the blink of an eye. Entire companies have adopted a remote work status. IT and security operations are doing the best they can to adapt to this new normal while staying healthy, all the while cybercriminals are more aggressive than ever before.

Bad actors have no shame. They increasingly exploit the desire of people for helpful information by distributing scams that use the COVID-19 theme ranging from phishing attacks to developing a malicious pandemic map. Organizations must review any overlooked vulnerabilities and focus on protecting themselves from these ongoing threats.

  • What are the main challenges faced today by IT leaders and how are they overcoming them?
  • With a large population of employees working from home, how are IT leaders ensuring secure networks?
  • What long-term impacts will the pandemic have on IT services?
