Opening conference Assises 2023 - Prince Pierre

Acces replay

In 2023, the tone is set by our Honorary Chairman, Sabrine Guiheneuf: Let's get some height!
Our industry is moving fast, very fast, and the trend is not to slow down. The pace of attacks, the emergence of innovations, the rotation of teams, the profiles of attackers, the social and geopolitical environment... CISOs are under pressure, and more than ever they need to take a step back, to take the time to exchange views with their peers and partners: this is the role of les Assises, and this is the roadmap that the Steering Committee has defined for this new edition.
At the traditional opening conference, we'll be giving the floor to those who are structuring, innovating and anticipating, to give impetus to these 4 days of exchange and sharing.

With the participation of : 

H.E. Mr. Pierre Dartout, Minister of State of the Principality of Monaco

General Jean-Philippe Lecouffe, Director of Operations, Europol

Vincent Strubel, ANSSI Director General

Sabrine Guiheneuf, President of the Assises, Director of the URW Cybersecurity and IT Governance Group and Director of CESIN

Thales Keynote: Quantum Apocalypse: myth or reality? - Prince Pierre

Acces replay

Quantum apocalypse is darkening sky above CISOs since several years. We propose to share perspectives about this threat and more over suggest strategies and plans to mitigate such risk. In the technological landscape, spotlights have been focusing recently on artificial intelligence, especially generative AI. This raises questions in terms of new attack vectors as well as new technology, involving large amounts of data, which deserve careful cyber protection.

Notes that love each other - Prince Pierre

André Manoukian describes himself as a pianist of Armenian-Cosmic origin, so the stage is set!

Original and sensitive, peppered with anecdotes and great revelations, this "pianoté lecture" will be an opportunity to revisit the notions of intuition, management, pedagogy and of course... audacity!

Pentera Keynote: What can CyberSecurity learn from IKEA? - Prince Pierre

Acces replay

The success story behind IKEA comes down to simplicity, affordability, and innovation. Is it possible to apply the same principles to cybersecurity? As threats and complexity increase, we require a new, radical approach to information security.

In this session, Pentera CEO Amitai Ratzon will discuss such an approach, illustrating how DIY security validation, leveraging automation technology, is set to revolutionize and simplify security validation at large. 

Using an IKEA chair as an example, Amitai will demonstrate how security teams can improve cyber readiness to win the cyber battle without a fight.
