Corporate Digital Crash – What can execs do?

We would like to invite you to the ”Corporate Digital Crash – What can execs do?” event hosted by Boardman and Digipooli on Tuesday 27th of September on 15:00 – 17:00 o’clock to learn why management and board are responsible for the digital security and why it should be a top priority in every organization?

The importance of digital security is constantly increasing as companies continue to digitise their key functions. As a result of this development, digital environments no longer merely support companies’ business operations, but have in fact become essential for them.

At the event you will learn: What board members and management needs to know about digital security, what are their role and responsibilities on the matter and how to ensure that your company is protected? You will hear the core findings of the Digipooli’s research ”The current state of cybersecurity in different sectors” and get insights from concrete case examples. Our experts in the event are Alchemmy’s Director Rob Price, Cyber Engagement Director Erika Suerz and Cyber Operations Director Teemu Eronen from Wärtsilä as well as Jan Segerstam Vice President in Enerim, Managing Director of Microsoft Oy Mervi Airaksinen and Timo Seppälä a leading reseracher from ETLA.

The event is organized as a hybrid. You are welcome to attend to the event via ZOOM or at the Cinea Studios in Kruununhaka, which offers you great networking opportunity with other participants at the end of the event.
