 Opening conference | The Funny Side of Digital and Security Transformation

horaires - conf ouverture rfit - eng

Technology changes exponentially; organizations change logarithmically.

If we want digital and security transformation, we ultimately have to think about organizational transformation. There has never been greater urgency to change, yet, many organizations resist change. There are common misfires with organizational silos not talking to each other. Technology initiatives are often adopted shallowly, missing their full potential. Forrester found that 21% of businesses believe they are “finished” with digital transformation.

With cartoons and case studies, Marketoonist creator Tom Fishburne will help us laugh at ourselves as a way to think about digital and security transformation. Humor is an under-leveraged leadership skill and can help organizations adopt new technology, overcome fear, and drive cultural change.

Exclusive talk with three ethical hackers: SaxX, ZaX & Doomer | Insiders: inside the Heads of Cybercriminals with Ethical Hackers!

horaire white hackers - rfit23 - eng

In this exciting talk, we will explore the latest trends in cybercrime and discuss our job as IT security specialists. We will compare and contrast the differences between hackers and cybercriminals and the tools and techniques they use. We will also discuss the main cybersecurity challenges in 2023, including the most pressing threats such as phishing, technical vulnerabilities and new attack vectors that have emerged due to the current geopolitical conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

In addition, we will describe how a ransomware attack can unfold, from the opening of an email to the famous red ransomware message. We will also share two cases of incident response on which we intervened (anonymised) to illustrate the impacts observed, the lessons learned and the best practices that resulted.

Finally, we will discuss the place of hackers in tomorrow's society, and how we can adapt our learning and education methods to best prepare the next generation of hackers to face future threats. Don't miss this opportunity to discover how cybersecurity has become a major issue for our connected world today.

Sustainable IT For Growth: A Strategic Differentiator

horaires - conf fermeture rfit - eng

Forrester predicts that sustainability will skyrocket into a strategic imperative.

Over the last 18 months, we have seen hefty fines levied against businesses making misleading claims. As scrutiny from consumers and empowered watchdogs such as UK’s CMA grows expect the crackdown to intensify. In 2023, organisations will need to make environmental sustainability a strategic imperative.

Technology executives need to become specialists in a wide range of technologies, methods, and services if they want to make better technological decisions. They also play a crucial role in leading development, delivery modernisation, and more. We’ll discuss the IT domains (Development, Workplace, and Infrastructure) on which to act for lowering the IT carbon footprint.

Stéphane Vanrechem, Analyste Senior, Forrester

Followed by a round table on GreenIT : State of the art

In a rapidly evolving field, approaches and methods that enable the implementation of digital responsibility within organizations, particularly from an environmental perspective, have been making significant progress for several years. We are thus moving from a stage of awareness of the real impacts to one of inventory (measurement) and concrete initiatives for improvements or even the necessary re-engineering of all or part of the information system. These are all steps that raise challenges.

During this round table, we propose to draw up a portrait of the state of the art through the evocation of concrete examples, very useful to take a step back and prepare actions.

Basics but not static


Applying the rules of digital hygiene is common sense. They evolve anyway with the needs and uses, and remain an essential basis to support the digital transformation of the company. But how do you go about it? Are these basics sufficient to reduce risks? Are there "new basics"? Is cyber insurance one of them?
