Your reasons to participate in the Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg 2020
We by default support events and initiatives that promote Cybersecurity in Luxembourg and more globally at the European level (which is our business footprint).
It is allowing us also one time in the year to focus on a specific thematic and promote this message across the organizations.
Your vision of the Cybersecurity Ecosystem in Luxembourg
The co-system is quite active and composed of very interesting companies. Even if collaboration is always a challenge on a small market like the Luxembourg one it creates opportunities. I’m seeing the role of Securitymadein has a key one in the coordination and animation of a such rich eco-system around events like this cyber week or the FIC delegation.
