Breakout sessions

1. The latest trends in cyberattacks: technology watch from PwC Lu's Ethical Hackers

This breakout session is aimed at updating you on the most significant and latest cyberattack trends that our team of Ethical Hackers has observed in the past year.
Both traditional and new media are increasing their coverage of cyberattacks, and the number of reported breaches and victims keeps increasing. Cybercrime is a real and fast-growing concern for companies across all industries, but the amount of available information has reached impractical levels. However, there is a lot to learn from these events.

This workshop will focus on discussions around the status of IoT Security from a business and a technology perspective.

4. Web-based Talent Management - a personality-oriented approach to individual and organizational personal development

The aim of this workshop will be to try out the Talentview profile analysis and get your own feedback on this tool.
Since 2015 the European Institute for Knowledge and Value Management, Luxembourg (EIKV), has been involved in the evaluation and further development of the Talentview profile analysis. Web-based individual profiles as well as team- and organization-related profiles are now available for Luxembourg companies and institutions. The Talentview profile analysis supports organizations in recruiting, personnel development as well as in team building and organizational optimization. Based on an online questionnaire, a job profile / candidate profile is created reflecting the individual abilities, skills and potentials of candidates and existing employees to identify and develop talents as well as to develop teams, to strategically align them and to strengthen co-operation.
