The SEMAFOR conference is one of the most important events related to the world of information security and IT audit in Poland.

In 2019 we hosted a record number of 500 delegates. Over 55 experts in IT security in Poland and around the world gave lectures. The SEMAFOR Conference offers:

  • opportunity to present your knowledge and achievements in an environment related to information security, IT audit, business continuity and risk management,
  • guarantee of meeting several hundred experts dealing with data security in companies, interested in modern IT solutions in this field.

The world around us introduces new technologies every day and with them - new threats. We would like to orientate the next conference around these fresh topics. Among others: industry 4.0, telemedicine, network and user security in 5G technology, robotics, AI and autonomous systems (e.g. cars), new financial institutions (e.g. Facebook), new legislation at European level (e.g. PSD2). These are the areas that, although already used, are often unrecognized in terms of the risks they bring. We will gladly see presentations that will help conference participants diagnose threats in these areas or answer the question of how to build resistance to these threats.

First of all - practical views and case studies identifying problems and ways to solve them.

The following subjects scope may be an inspiration for your presentation, consistent with professional experience:
