Cyber security remains a top priority for all businesses. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are being adopted by more and more industries and are therefore playing an increasingly significant role in cyber security.

Machine learning systems that accurately predict and identify attacks are fast becoming standard tools of the trade for cybersecurity professionals. The downside, of course, is that these technologies will also be exploited by cyber criminals. Additionally, ransomware will continue to claim high-profile victims. Recent attacks have taught companies that it is essential to conduct regular back-ups, to keep all software fully up to date at all times, and to strengthen their real-time defenses on an ongoing basis.

The CEBIT Cyber Security Summit explores these and other threats and challenges as well as the latest cyber security strategies.

Recent years have brought us extensive transformation and breakthroughs in the Internet of Things space.

Today, almost every industry invests heavily in IoT solutions. Leading businesses are quickly moving to further implement sophisticated IoT systems that drive their bottom lines. While consumer products, such as wearables and connected electronics, are currently a large part of the market, analysts predict that more than 80 percent of worldwide IoT expenditure through 2020 will be on B2B applications and use cases.

Clearly, IoT systems are set to remain one of the primary drivers of the digital transformation in 2018 and beyond. New businesses models will emerge that are characterized by new work processes, productivity improvements, greater cost efficiency and enhanced customer experiences.

Blockchain is much more than the just technology behind Bitcoin. It is a public ledger to which everyone has access - but which no single person controls. It allows companies and individuals to collaborate with an unprecedented degree of transparency and trust. It is cryptographically secure, but fundamentally open. The CEBIT Blockchain Summit will discuss how this game-changing technology may shape the future of the global economy, from healthcare to voting, from insurance claims to royalty payments.
