Welcome to the 8th Edition of the IT Security Insights Conference that will bring together the key stakeholders in the cyber security marketplace in Sweden. The event format will be a hybrid one where you will be able to follow the event programme either online or join us in person at the designated venue, Hotel Birger Jarl in Stockholm.

We have a well planned programme where you get to meet and interact with leading IT Security experts from some of the largest organisations in the Nordic region.

The event is a must attend for everyone working with Information Security, Cybersecurity, GRC, Data Protection, AI, ML, Zero Trust and DevOps to mention but a few. With over 30 speakers presenting, keynotes, practical case-studies and workshops on 5 different stages, you are almost guaranteed to pick a thing or two that you can apply in your organisations after the conference.

The conference will address how the on going Ukraine-Russian war is impacting businesses in the EU and beyond from both the security and the geo-political side of things. 

We shall also delve into the current status of EU-US data protection regulations, especially the recently adopted EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework whose main goal is to achieve a high level of protection of personal data within the EU member states. 

We explore efforts being made to attract new talent in the cybersecurity profession to meet the ever increasing demand of cybersecurity experts on the security job market. For instance, we will take a look at the current information security awareness training initiatives of our own workforce. What is common practice since the COVID pandemic between working remotely full time or part time? And what have been the security implications of the remote working phenomenon today?

 Event theme: "Leveraging AI as a defence mechanism in today's digital world".

The conference will attract over 20 partners offering a variety of innovative tools and solutions in the Expo area. So, visit and network with your peers and leading cybersecurity vendors that will be in the attendance. Online participants will through the Agorify App be able to browse through the schedule, build their own agenda, view live presentations, comment, ask questions, connect with other attendees, share contacts and even schedule meetings on the agorify event platform.

NOTE: This is a preliminary schedule that will be updated with speakers and sponsors leading up to the conference.

Hope to see many of you as we celebrate the 8th edition of our event!
