2:00 PM – Retain the tension with data retention

There’s one roadblock that keeps the next billion cloud and hosting companies from beating down your door – and it’s you. Your systems need to be brought up to speed with today’s DNS, which is diverse and multi-lingual.

There’s something called Universal Acceptance (UA), and it’s probably the key to the biggest business opportunity you’re missing. Join us for another classic WHD night.talk, and find out why you should rise to the challenge of becoming UA ready, for the good of your business and the future of the Internet. And yes, cocktails will be served.

4:00 PM – Critical Infrastructures at risk – are you doing enough?

After German national IT security law (IT-SiG) has entered into force in 2015, the European Directive on Network and Information Security (NIS) is now another specification which aims to improve IT security for critical infrastructures. Transposition into national law is required by May 2018 and many companies will be subject to additional IT security requirements.

Get first hand information and discuss, whether law makers at the national and international level are pursuing the right strategy to provide for an adequate protection against current cyber threats.
