Security | Privacy | Continuity

CIS Compliance Summit 2023

New Work - Potential or Provocation for Security & Privacy

Our societal understanding of work is undergoing a fundamental change. Work-life blending instead of work-life balance, more meaning instead of more salary, community feeling instead of ego shows, location and time-flexible remote work instead of nine-to-five in the office.

"New Work" addresses exactly this shift away from the previous performance-oriented society to a society that is at least as productive, in which individuals want, should, and can act autonomously.


Beautiful new, secure world? Between reality and appearance

It is obvious that "New Work" not only brings changes for employees, but also for companies. Cloud services, apps, mobile working, and access to sensitive data must be regulated, secured, and constantly scrutinized to prevent vulnerabilities from arising in the first place. According to a study by the American cybersecurity company Tenable, Inc., around 67% of business-damaging cyber attacks were specifically aimed at people working remotely. The establishment of a variety of "New Work" tools in daily business life thus opens up new entry points in terms of security and privacy.


Added value. Transparency. Resilience. Better safe than sorry.

Due to the growing complexity, not only a high level of cybersecurity and privacy measures is necessary - a comprehensive and far-reaching information security strategy per se is crucial. An all-in-one mix of employee awareness, professional training, and the highest management and security standards should be implemented sooner rather than later.

How can we balance between a secure working environment and an open corporate culture? To what extent are management systems a suitable tool to harness this seemingly endless potential of new processes, technologies, and security measures? What challenges and risks await us and how can we overcome them? These and many other questions will be answered by renowned experts at this year's CIS Compliance Summit.

At the CIS Compliance Summit on September 19, many speakers from the business, research, and other fields will shed light on this field of tension between opportunity and risk from different perspectives. The focus will be on bridging the gap between theory and practice, and we will discuss the role management systems play in the "New Work" world and, above all, how your company can use these changes to its advantage.

 Don't miss it - we look forward to seeing you there!
