ISE 2020 gets new Cybersecurity Workshop from CEDIA

CEDIA is taking its Cybersecurity Workshop to ISE 2020 to provide an in-depth look at the concepts of network security and privacy.

The one-day workshop, which will be taught by industry experts from around the world, will take place on Monday 10th February at the Hotel Okura, Amsterdam. It is designed for both residential and commercial integrators as well as manufacturers. 

CEDIA’s Cybersecurity Workshop responds to the growing danger of exploitation of residential networks and connected devices in this IoT age. 

The workshop delivers content to help integrators deal with the growing proliferation of threats and will cover all aspects of network security and privacy, and how these concepts have evolved to be critical components of every system design, implementation, and aftercare plan. 

Jeff Sonnleitner, a professional network and security instructor with over 35 years’ experience, will be the lead instructor for the Cybersecurity Workshop. He said: “Security practices are becoming a necessity in every system design and installation, no matter the size. The home network has been a real starting place for cyber criminals, a cause for concern that needs to be addressed. 

“This new workshop is open to everyone looking to create security policies, whether from a corporate or business standpoint, or as a safety protocol for end users.”

Mixing seminars and demonstrations with immersive and collaborative sessions, the workshop will guide attendees through the most up-to-date examples of cybersecurity policies, allowing a company to ensure systems are implemented securely and customer expectations are managed. 

“The Cybersecurity Workshop is an exciting step in the right direction for CEDIA’s education programme at ISE,” added Matt Nimmons, managing director of CEDIA EMEA. “With the industry continuously expanding, more devices are being connected to the IP network. 

“It’s great to have Jeff as lead instructor, as well as industry experts Rich Green and Mike Maniscalco on board. Their extensive knowledge and experience of cloud computing, emerging technologies, and cybersecurity makes this a must-attend event for all ISE attendees.”

During the workshop, attendees will take part in sessions where they will create the outline for two important policies: 
• An Operational Cybersecurity Policy for staff to ensure every network is designed and configured in a secure manner. 
• A User Cybersecurity Policy to guide end users in playing their part in maintaining security and privacy. 

At the end of the workshop, attendees will be given template cybersecurity policies that, combined with learning from the course, will help to create policies specific to their business.

By the end of the course, attendees will be able to:
• Define what cybersecurity is, identify common misconceptions, learn “quick wins” to put into action now, and begin developing their own strategy for minimising cybersecurity threats.
• Determined how best to enable their workforce, customers, suppliers, partners, and collaborators to be risk conscious and security aware, and to fulfil their cybersecurity roles and responsibilities. 
• Achieve the goals of cybersecurity. 

ISE visitors who wish to attend the course can register for an early bird rate of €192.50 for members and €262.50 for non-members. Early bird rate ends on 8th January, 2020.
