The Critical Manufacturing Cyber Security Summit comes to Europe

After two sold-out editions in Chicago in 2016 and 2017, Qatalyst Global will be bringing the ManuSec Summit to Germany next year. We’ll be in Munich, the industrial heartland of Europe, with a blend of high-level, strategic discussion and practical, hands-on advice that participants will take back to their organisations.

Behind this exciting expansion is Cecilia Limonta, a young high-flier with extensive international events experience. She said: “What’s special about ManuSec is that it represents a concerted effort by an industry to come together as a sector and defend itself collectively against cyber threats. We’re very glad to be partnering with some of the largest manufacturing companies in Europe to discuss the threats of 2018 together.”

Here’s a glimpse of our fantastic lineup at ManuSec Europe:

  • Fredrik Pierrou, CISO at Lantmaennen
  • Edina Dobos, Global Manager SoD & Application Controls at Diageo
  • Muyiwa Olufon, Head, Global Security Operations at Adidas
  • Antonio Buendia, Senior Principal Automation Engineer at Novartis
  • Kaj Paanannen, Global IS Manager at Wärtsilä
  • Stefan Wenigmann, CISO at Bucher Industries

We’re particularly looking forward to seeing how far the industry has advanced through case studies from Wärtsilä and Bucher Industries, as well as a really practical how-to session on creating incident response plans.

The manufacturing sector is coming under sustained attack like never before.  Global giants including Mondelez, Reckitt Benckiser and FedEx have released impact figures, putting the costs of WannaCry at up to $300m. Will WannaCry and NotPetya have left tangible impact at board levels? Find out in Munich next February!
