Cyber Resilience Innovation: creating it together!
Date: Thursday 21st September, 2017
Location: Venture Cafe / CIC: Stationsplein 45, Groothandelsgebouw CIC, 4th Floor, 3013 AK, Rotterdam
Cyber resilience, a topic that’s becoming increasingly relevant to all of us; we all live, work and play in a digital, hyper-connected world. What do we do about making it cyber resilient though?
Join us at Venture Café Rotterdam for an evening of community conversations & exchange of thoughts. An evening of discovery. Becoming cyber resilient is something we can all create together, and everyone’s contribution is needed for strong, cyber resilient societies, business initiatives, cities, and a resilient every day life.
This event is for everyone interested in the digital world we live in and our future in that. The way we live our personal lives, the way we do business, the way we care for our environment and our cities. We all can and should contribute towards a safer, secure, cyber resilient society. It all starts with us as individuals, it comes together by creating it together.
Working and innovating together is the way forward; this session and the topic of cyber resilience is an encompassing one. How can we create a community to take action together, bring innovation to the market, share knowledge and put know how to work? From the products we create and use, to the services we share, to the initiatives we take, it all matters.
Creating a secure digital world, ensuring privacy, having a dependable infrastructure and resilient daily lives is not just a task for techies. It’s for everyone and we can all contribute; the entrepreneur, the inventor, the marketer, the C-level executive; the local, regional and national government, the business world, the organizations and groups advocating and working towards a better society for everyone.
InnovationQuarter and Base Cyber Security will share perspectives on cyber resilience, what it means to you, what great initiatives are already in place and most importantly, how we can all collaborate together, as a community, for a cyber resilient future!
Following the main session, two mini break out sessions will take place. One will focus on the business and governmental contribution to cyber resilience, and the other on the personal relevance. Everyone will have the chance to learn, challenge, share and ultimately contribute to bringing together all stakeholders to form a community of practice, collaborate better, for economic development and a high quality, cyber resilient everyday life for everyone.
