HOME RUN – 2nd Trinational Cybersecurity Days Basel 2021

How did you get through the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions?
Did everyone just run home or was your business home run?

The Covid-19 pandemic intensified the need for digital solutions of remote work scenarios. Great solutions often carry in great risks for companies that do not (yet) have an established cybersecurity concept. The 2nd Trinational Cybersecurity Days will create a space for exchange and discussion on your most pressing topics in cybersecurity.

WHAT IS IT?

The Trinational Cybersecurity Days are an event free of charge organized and hosted by the Competence Center Cybersecurity & Resilience at FHNW School of Business. It is an event targeted towards employees from small and medium-sized enterprises interested in cybersecurity and new technologies. It is not an expert event; instead we aim to create a space for exchange, hands-on insights and discussion on how cyber risks affects the work of small and medium-sized businesses.

WHY JOIN?

1. Get prepared: Cyberattacks increased alarmingly1

The Covid-19 pandemic intensified the need for digital solutions of remote work scenarios. Technical solutions however carry increased exposure to cyber risks for companies that do not (yet) have an established cybersecurity concept. The 2nd Trinational Cybersecurity Days will create a space for exchange and discussion on your most pressing topics in cybersecurity. The unique feature of the event is its trinational character, which brings together interested people from Germany, France and Switzerland à Cybersecurity is a topic that does not stop at national borders.

2. Get hands-on insights: Individual workshops and interactive formats

Seats to our event are limited, hence allowing for a small group size and highly interactivity. Our program includes as a highlight individual cybersecurity quick-checks by cybersecurity experts. You will receive some advice in which area your small business or start-up should increase its cybersecurity level. Another top feature is a panel discussion with representatives from industry (former Siemens engineer), academia, and government (Swiss National Cybersecurity Center). Everybody is encouraged to place questions and contribute.

3. Collaborate safely: Limited seats and if needed online possibilities

Our health and safety is one of our priorities. Therefore, we decided to allow only limited seats, hence avoiding large crowds of people. Even though we wish to welcome you onsite, depending on the situation in February 2021 we might still switch to a digital mode or offer digital participation, if appropriate.
