The fourth edition of Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg is being held in person and online from 19 to 29 October 2020.
Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg once again forms part of the European Cyber Security Month organised by the European Commission and ENISA, the European cybersecurity agency.
This campaign to raise awareness and promote the Luxembourg cybersecurity ecosystem has over the years become a key moment on the agenda of the IT sector. More than 3,000 people participated in the previous edition.
Despite the extraordinary conditions due to the global health crisis, players in the cybersecurity ecosystem were able to mobilise throughout the year to meet the needs of their partners and customers. The measures taken to respond to COVID-19 have only reinforced the importance of digital technology in our daily lives as well as that of high standards in terms of cybersecurity. Consequently, Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg will be an opportunity to bring together historical partners as well as new players who are working together to create a secure and sustainable national digital economy.
Around 20 cybersecurity-related events targeting different audiences, most of them in virtual form, will take place over the next ten days. hack.lu, a conference that usually brings together hundreds of cybersecurity experts over several days, will take the form of a book, bringing together publications by internationally recognised experts.
The highlight of Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg will be the gala evening which will take place on 29 October 2020. Luxembourg's Minister of the Economy, Franz Fayot, will give the opening speech, followed by the awards ceremony.
Five prizes will be awarded:
- Most promising young talents
- Cybersecurity Solution of the year
- Best paper at hack.lu
- DPO of the year
- CISO of the year
The gala can be followed remotely. Register on www.xing.com/events/online-awards-night-2833316.
