CeBIT 2011: Focus on IT security

Experts to discuss current IT security issues in the G Data Arena

02/16/2011 | Bochum (Germany) 

Cloud computing is one of the top issues at CeBIT 2011 - but is "the cloud" really secure? And what are cyber-criminals setting their sights on in their raids? These and other key security issues are this year being discussed by experts at the major G Data Arena Debates. As an exhibitor the German provider has again succeeded in attracting many high quality guests, including Mirko Manske (BKA), Dr. Johannes Wiele (TÜV Rheinland i-sec GmbH), Chris Fischer (BfK), Prof. Dr. Jörg Schwenk (University of Bochum), Prof. Dr. Nobert Pohlmann (FH Gelsenkirchen) and Ralf Benzmüller (Head of G Data SecurityLabs). The hour-long debates will begin daily at 4pm in the G Data Arena in Hall 11, Booth D35.

This year the major G Data Arena Talkshows will again be monitored by Wolfgang Back and Wolfgang Rudolph from ComputerClub2. The TV veterans are already looking forward to CeBIT 2011 and will be making daily broadcasts from their glass CC2 radio studio in the G Data Arena, reporting on current IT trends at the show.
