The format of the workshops will be small groups of up to 20 people which will also enable the attendees to discuss sensitive aspects. The best practice seminars will cover the entire cybersecurity spectrum from the implementation of effective cyber resilience strategies via best practice to the control of industrial control systems and to projects in which companies have been mentored successfully through to GDPR compliance. The workshops are being held by the proven experts from the corporate partners of Command Control including Akamai, Checkpoint, Ernst & Young, Proofpoint, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, SANS Institute and SecureLink.

Visualization of threat scenarios
The event also includes an exhibition area where a range of security providers will be presenting their solutions. The aim of this innovative showcase concept from Command Control is to find new ways of visualizing complex inter-connections. This concept is being launched this year with the installation of a digital factory in which the security providers. Airbus Cybersecurity, Cyoss by ESG, Giesecke & Devrient Mobile Security, TÜV Rheinland and VMware have set up a joint augmented reality system to clearly demonstrate the different threat scenarios in the networking of production plants and to present corresponding solutions.

Furthermore, as a warm-event to Command Control on September 19, there will be a Pre-Event at the Information Security Hub in Munich Airport which is offering a cyber simulation taster training session to attendees. The event will then come to a close at a Networking Event on September 22 in the Schottenhamel Tent at the Munich Oktoberfest.
