Security Days for Industry

We did it!

The first issue of “GRAZ SECURITY DAYS FOR INDUSTRY” is over, and it has been a real success!

With more than 130 participants over two days (September 4th & 5th 2018) we were able to reach a wide variety of stakeholders and decision makers of Austrian companies and research institutions with cutting-edge talks from hot fields across cybersecurity.
We were able to host numerous speakers of world-leading companies and institutions to ensure the excellence of the presented contents, such as Mario Lamberger from NXP Semiconductors, Thomas Pöppelmann from Infineon Technologies and Peter Vrabec from Red Hat, just to name a few. But the highlight was undoubtedly the keynote delivered by Professor Bart Preneel from KU Leuven on current Challenges for Security and Privacy.


The conference provided a comprehensive look at cybersecurity reaching from basic cryptography, operating system vulnerabilities and software development best practices to security certification and future topics such as Post-quantum Cryptography and Blockchain Technology.
The attached convention area provided the occasion for cluster companies to present and pitch relevant services and products to the participants and allowed for effective networking and business development.
Our special thanks go out to our Cyber Security & IoT Cluster Focus Group partners for their active support of this event and of course to all participants!


We are already working on improving this format which will be back end of September 2019!
