Oct 19, 2021 10:30am ‐ Oct 19, 2021 11:30am

Credits: None available.


The presentation will focus on drivers to develop a digital-first model, including problems / pain points Giesecke+Devrient encountered with the "old" model during its digital transformation process. We'll discuss: -Requirements we needed to take into consideration (regulatory, internal, etc.). -Definition of terms in this context. -Positioning of information security as a corporate center in the company (mission, vision, added value proposition, etc.). -The organizational model (information security and IT organizations and the role of the Cyber Defense Center). -Challenges encountered since its introduction, adaptations to the model since its definition/implementation in 2018 and the influence of the pandemic on accelerated digitization and subsequently information security.

Learning Objectives:
  • Explain why diversity is a key to the continuous improvement of information security and its support of digitization initiatives within a global company.
  • Explain to senior management and the business how information security can be a true enabler adding value to the digitization process.
  • Embark on a similar successful journey to a modern digital-first information security organization by providing a blueprint for a modern organization.
