NORDIC SECTECH SUMMIT 2024

The unifying theme of this year's Summit is "Human-centered security design".

While technology continues to evolve rapidly, one factor in safety remains constant: the human factor. Human error remains one of the leading causes of data breaches and security incidents "The system doesn't make mistakes, only humans make mistakes" - this refers both to human errors in the design of a system and to the fact that a human doing a manual job makes more mistakes than a meticulously designed system. Which, again, only makes mistakes if it is a human who made the mistake in the process of designing it. This is why a new paradigm is emerging: human-centered safety design that also complies with all laws and safety regulations.  

What does it mean?

In essence, it is an approach that puts people at the center of the design process, taking into account their behaviour, needs and constraints. It is about making security intuitive, effortless and user-friendly, reducing the likelihood that users will make mistakes or circumvent security measures.

Human-centered safety design defines the importance of the employee experience throughout the control management lifecycle. By 2027, 50% of security managers in large enterprises will have adopted human-centered security design practices to reduce cyber security threats and increase control implementation.

This topic focuses on user-friendly safety technologies, their integration into safety design, and human behaviour in shaping safety outcomes. It not only reflects current trends in security technologies, but also highlights the importance of adaptability, user-centricity and sustainability in the development of security policy.

Register today, save unnecessary worries in autumn!

Each responsible person in the company is responsible for a specific segment of the security policy, as well as for a solution or group of solutions within their department. There are situations where those responsible, in consultation with security companies, purchase the cheapest solution without even realizing that it does not meet the security requirements, both in terms of application and regulatory documents.

 

As of 10 November 2023, the NIS2 Directive has entered into force, which requires that the security system must be flawless and unbreakable. The system must meet the general security requirements and be an integral part of the company's overall ICT systems.

The total cost of cyber security incidents is expected to fall by €11.3* billion in the 3-4 years after NIS2 is implemented.
