verinice.XP is the conference for users of the OpenSource ISMS tool verinice. On February 24 and 25, 2021, it will take place for the first time in a new format as an online event. Tickets for the conference as well as for the preceding workshops on February 23 can be booked at verinicexp.org. Please consider that the conference language is German.
The organizing committee decided to switch to the new format due to the corona situation. Nadine Dreymann, who is responsible for verinice.XP at organizer SerNet, says: "Unfortunately, we have to do without in-person networking this time, but overall we see many advantages in a digital conference." Besides the obvious security factor, a virtual event opens up more flexible participation options. Speakers give their presentations live via zoom, so that participants can follow and engage in the conference from any location via the Internet. Dreymann: "Of course we will come up with ideas to make verinice.XP the usual high-quality and also buoyant experience".
Early-bird tickets for the online edition of verinice.XP 2021 are available at a price of 66 Euro. From December 12, 2020, the regular ticket will be available for 99 Euro.
The Call for Papers will run until December 11, 2020. Well-founded presentations and reference projects are still accepted for the agenda: IT security, data protection (EU-DSGVO) as well as KRITIS and industry standards will provide the participants with two days of information. Pioneering innovations in verinice will also have their place in the online program.
The workshops scheduled for the day before the conference (February 23) will also be held remotely. The topics are available for selection:
- Implementation of modernized IT baseline protection in verinice (workshop with Ulf Riechen, Riechen Consulting)
- Modernized IT baseline protection – the ultimate perspective (Workshop with Dirk Brand, Sila Consulting)
The costs for a workshop participation are 199 Euro. Further details on the contents can be found on the conference website at verinicexp.org.
