“Initial access: don't let them in!”

Our exclusive, all-day event for IT and cybersecurity decision-makers and experts will cover subjects such as the following:

A guided tour of Fort Eben-Emael:

A guided tour of Fort Eben-Emael: the World War II fortress that was considered to be one of the strongest in Europe.
And yet it was “hacked” in less than 36 hours – simply because the enemy exploited a weakness the designers had completely overlooked.

What do the fortress of Eben-Emael, NIS2 and
ransomware have in common?

The Fortress of Eben Emael

It is one of the biggest fortresses post World War I, that was considered to be untakeable (by ground) but fell in the first 36 hours after the initial attack. What can be some lessons learned and what analogy can we make towards cybersecurity?

The NIS2 directive

The NIS2 directive, needs to be adopted by the member states before October 2024. It will improve cybersecurity risk management and will introduce reporting obligations across multiple new sectors.


Ransomware has been in the news all across 2022, with the city of Antwerp being the still fresh in our memory. Let's us deep dive how it gets into your network, how you can use existing tools you might have in your Microsoft licenses to keep it out and what are some lessons learned provided that experts that went through several of these incidents.
