Press releases about it-sa
The it-sa 2016 exhibition closed with new records: 490* exhibitors (428 in 2015) from 19 countries and well over 10,000 trade visitors (up from 9,015 in 2015) from Germany and abroad used Europe's biggest trade fair on IT security as a platform for dialogue. Topical issues discussed by IT security experts at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg included protection from DDoS attacks, advanced methods for malware identification, measures to counter ransomware and Cloud security. In addition, Congress@it-sa provided technical information in 15 lecture series.
IT security is a growth market with increasing sales and employment rates. This was the result of an exhibitor poll that gauged the mood of the IT security sector in the run-up to it-sa 2016. The survey respondents were also asked about the impact of the German IT Security Act. Although the anticipated positive spin-offs have come about, the impact is less than that forecast a year ago. The representative survey also found that it is only a majority of large companies that have a systematic IT security concept in place, and more than half of investment decisions are not made until after a security incident. At it-sa in Nuremberg from 18 to 20 October, more than 480 firms and organisations from the IT security industry will show companies what they need to do to improve the security of their information.
