This year experts will be paying attention to cybercrimes, cyber incidents and the EU GDPR. Additionally, there will be discussions about topics such as cyber security policy, the new cyber security strategy of the European Union, public and private partnership in the EU member states. Experts will also discuss ransomware, network and mobile security.

The conference speakers include NATO CCD COE Ambassador Aare Reintam, former Head of Estonian CERT unit Klaid Mägi, ICT Security expert & hacker Raoul Chiesa, Digital Forensics expert Selene Giupponi, Programme Director of IBM Security Mark Ehr, Executive Director of FISC, Chairman of the Board of North European Cybersecurity Cluster NECC Juha Remes, Senior policy manager of ECSO Danilo Delia, Head of the Cyber Security Section of the Technical University of Denmark Christian Damsgaard Jensen and Security Expert of CQURE Tom Nowakowski and many others.

This year, we have invited globally recognised experts to the DSS ITSEC conference, to discuss the relevant cyber security topics in the context of this Regulation and the expected changes in the future. We are truly happy to have been able to gather professionals of the industry for nine years already, to establish new cooperation and strengthen the cyber security of the Baltic countries," says Andris Soroka, the founder and organiser of the DSS ITSEC conference.
