Orange Cyberdefense Live 2023

In the heat of the crisis

Get ready for the hottest cybersecurity event of the year! We are proud to present the 3d edition of Orange Cyberdefense Live - In the heat of the crisis! This year, we are turning up the heat and focusing on cyber crisis management. Just like a well-executed fire drill, having a solid plan in place is crucial. Because when it comes to cybersecurity, playing with fire can have disastrous consequences.

We'll show you how a robust cyber crisis management plan, with the right people, processes, and technology, can minimize downtime and maximize recovery, ensuring your organization stays resilient.

What sets this year's event apart? This year, we're going bigger and bolder! In one day, you will be able to immerse yourself in interactive sessions on the topics of your choice. You can participate in breakout sessions, technological demos, and many networkingopportunities. On top of that, you'll be able to enjoy a variety of culinary treats.

Join the city of Genk, the hospital of Mol, an international hostage negotiator, pentesting masters, Generative AI experts, Cyber Crisis Consultants, and others on November 9 in Edegem (Antwerp) and truly immerse yourself in the world of firefighting.

It's going to be lit!

Select your preferred session

Throughout the day, you'll have the chance to participate in three breakout sessions:

1. Before the crisis

What can you do to prevent a cyber-attack, and how to prepare for one?

2. During the crisis

Learn more about effective cyber crisis management. 

3. After the crisis

How to recover from a cyber-attack and learn from it?
