How can information security and compliance be managed professionally? How can IT security solutions be implemented in day-to-day business? IT decision-makers from renowned German and international companies, including the power supplier EnBW, the Deutsche Bahn, telecommunications specialist T-Systems and the German Aerospace Centre, provide fascinating insights into corporate practise.

OpenSky at the IT Security Congress

In order to achieve optimum positioning to meet the growing requirements of the future, TÜV Rheinland has developed an international strategy towards information security. At the beginning of 2014, the enterprise acquired the American OpenSky Corporation. Specialists in IT infrastructure, information security and compliance, OpenSky is one of the leading technology companies in the US and has already implemented more than 750 projects for Fortune 500 companies. TÜV Rheinland’s US subsidiary will be in attendance at the IT Security Congress in May. Mark Wireman, expert for application security at OpenSky, will be speaking at the Congress, explaining why it is vital to take account of security – as a key feature of performance – even during the development stage of software applications.

Prominent keynote speakers

Besides welcoming Paul de Souza, the founder of the Washington-based Cyber Security Forum Initiative, other highlights of the two-day conference include prominent keynote speakers from the USA. In addition to Phil Zimmermann, creator of the PGP email encryption software, diplomat John Kornblum will also guest in Fürstenfeldbruck near Munich. Both will be offering their perspectives to the current debate on the opportunities to and limits of information security. The keynote from Ofir Hason should also be particularly stimulating. Hason heads CyberGym, a unique training and simulation centre for IT staff. Hason will be reporting on how IT experts in business and politics are trained by Israeli cyber security specialists to defend against cyber attacks.
