Cybersecurity is another huge issue in DES 2016. The security sessions are concentrated in the first day of this event, so they have been pretty intense and dense, going from a general approach to specific topics.
When a company adopts digital methods and processes, both internally and externally, it has to take into account the security risks. Digital is harder to protect than analog systems.
At the same time, Big Data and analytic techniques become tools to detect proactively threats and malware. The digital transformation of security involves the adoption of both reactive and proactive strategies, especially in fields as the Internet of Things, as mentioned by Fernando Picatoste, speaker on behalf of Deloitte.
The European Union has an important role to play in the field of regulation and legislation to define a common ground for all companies, so they can go into their digital transformation processes with guarantees of not being exposed to security breaches easily, protecting the consumer at the same time.
