Digital Trust: Preparing for tomorrow’s threats, today

How do you manage trust?

Digital trust is what enables individuals and businesses to engage online with confidence that their footprint in a digital world is secure.

With digital transformation expanding the use cases for PKI trust has now become the backbone for security in the connected world: for securing users, software, servers, devices, digital content, documents, digital rights, identity and more.

Digital trust is about more than a product or service. It is established upon four key building blocks:

  • Industry and technology standards that define what constitutes trust
  • Compliance and operations that govern delivery of trust
  • Unified trust management platforms for certificate lifecycle management of public and private trust
  • Extension of trust through ecosystems such as connected devices, software supply chains and digital content provenance.

As the digital world continues to grow and change, innovating solutions in the cybersecurity space becomes more important for providers of digital trust and the people who count on them to stay securely connected. Powerful technologies like quantum computing and artificial intelligence (AI) have the potential to propel the connected world forward—but in the wrong hands, their dangers are undeniable.

That’s why innovation areas like machine learning and AI, quantum encryption, cryptography, and IoT security are key areas of focus.

How can you prepare for the PQC era?

Solution: PKI Reimagined DigiCert ONE is a modern, holistic approach to PKI management. Based on an advanced, container-based design, DigiCert ONE allows you to rapidly deploy in any environment, roll out new services in a fraction of the time, and manage users and devices across your organisation at any scale. Built by experts, designed for users. Because it’s not just what PKI can do. It’s what you do with it.

Automation of vulnerability identification

Critical aspect of cybersecurity is vulnerability identification and prioritisation. Many organisations are turning to automated vulnerability management solutions that leverage Ai and ML and big data analytics to identify security flaws and assess their severity and impact. These are the benefits: Continuous scanning, Real-time alerts, Unified dashboard, Customizable policies and more. 


Closing keynote: Why are we insecure? – An ethical hacker’s lonely road to cyber dystopia

In this revealing presentation, an ethical hacker with 25+ years of experience explores why, despite advancements in security technology and legislation, cyber threats continue to escalate by analyzing the  evolution of the hacking landscape. 

The session highlights the overlooked fundamentals of cyber attacks, the creation of vulnerabilities through digital transformation, and the misuse of technology. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the human aspects of cybersecurity, learn to recognize common vulnerabilities, and see a live demonstration of a hack, which includes bypassing multi-factor authentication and weaponizing legitimate software for social engineering.

Keynote – Cybersecurity awareness for the boards!

We have a lot of challenges when it comes to cybersecurity, however the biggest challenge for the CISOs is Cybersecurity awareness for the boards and this challenge is on the top of their agenda.
  • How to sell the idea of cybersecurity awareness to the boards?
  • How do you speak their language? 
  • What has been the outcome of an unsuccessful sale to the management and what can be done to achieve their understanding?
Arnaud Headshot Nordics Cybersecurity conference speaker
Arnaud Wiehe
Managing Director Information Security, FedEx


Expert Panel – Cyber security awareness is the integral cog of the cybersecurity machine!

Effective communication is key to engaging CEOs, board members and the rest of the employees of an organisation in discussions about cybersecurity. To bridge the knowledge gap, CISOs and cybersecurity professionals must articulate cybersecurity concepts in language that is easily understandable by non-experts. Raising awareness about the potential consequences of cyber threats and showcasing the company’s proactive approach to security can further strengthen cybersecurity initiatives.

  • Cyber threat trends 2024 and in the coming years.  
  • How can we encourage board members to invest in cybersecurity programs in order to safeguard their organisation? 
  • How do you suggest creating awareness for cybersecurity awareness for your board?
  • Phishing is becoming an ever-increasing threat. And unfortunately, there is no such thing as 100% protection. How do you assess the situation today and in the future?
  • When reporting on security awareness success, what KPIs would you report on to the board?  
  • Gamification is repeatedly mentioned as a very important element in our education on security threats. Is that included in SoSafe and if yes, what is the actual value of it?
