Michael Andersen

Management philosopher and ransomware hostage negotiator

Meet Michael Andersen, Management philosopher and ransomware hostage negotiator who invites you into the war-room and shows what happens behind closed doors after an extensive cyber-attack has striked.

Meet Charl van der Walt, Head of Research, who will give us an insight into his work at Orange Cyberdefense. 


Climate Change, Tracking the key themes in cybersecurity that are shaping the landscape

Cybersecurity is a complex problem that emerges from the interaction of a complex set of powerful systemic factors. While we focus our attention daily on addressing the emergent 'symptoms' of this system, we cannot hope to get ahead of the threat until we start to understand what causes the challenges we face daily.

We can think about the relationship between weather and climate: We understand that when it rains we need to carry an umbrella. But to understand when it's going to rain, and to understand why it's raining more than before... we need to understand the climate.

In this presentation we describe the systemic factors that shape the cybersecurity climate, then examine the factors that are shifting at the moment and are likely to affect the threat landscape we will have to deal with in the months and years to come. We will use unique insights and data gleaned from our operational security intelligence and security research to explain the current changes in 'climate' and predict the 'weather' we will soon all have to deal with.


A short introduction to Orange Cyberdefense and our main focus areas in 2023


Intelligence-Led Managed Services knowing you better than you know yourself

How Orange Cyberdefense has crafted not only a set of individual managed services that stand out in their own right, but how the intelligence at the heart of what we do is central to everything and our future vision for doubling down on this approach.


A day in the life of an ethical hacker


Child sexual abuse material - why it’s a security threat that should be on every CISO’s radar


The hostage negotiator - my Life in a war-room

On 9. June 2021 at 10:31 the emergency alarm goes off at Michael Andersen. It was the start of one of the Nordic countries' most extensive cyber-attacks on a supply chain.

In this lecture, Michael Andersen takes the audience back to 14 days in a war-room. What happens behind closed doors?:

What do you talk to the hostage takers about? How did you establish a crisis organization? What intelligence did you have to work with? What did the enemy look like?

NIS2 & Cybersecurity – What does it mean in practice?

Reports from Fortinet's Threat Intelligence Center shows that Denmark was one of the countries in Scandinavia, that was highly exposed to cyber attacks in 2022. In this session, you will learn which types of attacks, you as a company should be most aware of in 2023. We will show you which types of attacks are the most common right now and place this into a NIS2 context. NIS2 is on everyone’s “Top of Mind”, but do you know how to convert the conversation about the topic to something concrete you can work with in practice?

We present you - two concrete practical examples - which focus on the consolidation of IT/OT and how you build the technical data base for incident plans, as well as the control elements that can be used in relation to defining a continuous security strategy held up against the NIS2 regulation.

Vectra AI

Using Attack Signal Intelligence to Detect and Respond to attack

As the attack surface and attack sophistication grows, we need to look for modern ways of responding to the complexity and scale. Just doing more of the same is not an option. In this session, we will be discussing one of the elements of OCD’s managed threat detection services, that is powered by Vectra.

You will get a peek behind the buzz-words like AI and Machine Learning, and get an understanding how OCD is leveraging the same types of Data Science as e.g. ChatGBT to power the Managed Threat Detection service.

Seeing the attacker’s view: A people-centric approach to security

ABSTRACT: Modern attackers have pivoted to targeting people. A simple internet search can tell them all they need to know about who has access to the system or data they are targeting. You likely know that Business Email Compromise, ransomware and data theft, is costing organisations billions.  But do you know why these attacks continue to reach new levels of success?

Join this session to learn how you can identify your most attacked and riskiest users and design better control strategies to stop these attacks before they reach your employees and steal your data.
