CISO #Poland Assembly: A Milestone for Cybersecurity Collaboration

CISO #Poland Assembly

The recent CISO Assembly in Poland was a landmark event that brought together over 100 of the country’s top cybersecurity experts. Hosted by NASK (Scientific and Academic Computer Network – National Research Institute) and organized by the CISO #Poland foundation, the assembly was filled with insightful discussions, knowledge sharing, and networking among professionals at the forefront of cybersecurity in Poland. Beata Kwiatkowska, our Business Development Officer, and Krzysztof Góźdź, Sales Manager, were honored to participate.

Panel Discussion on the State of National Cybersecurity

One of the highlights of the event was a panel discussion led by Adam Marczynski, Director of Cybersecurity and Innovation at NASK. The panelists shared their perspectives on the current state of cybersecurity in Poland, discussing challenges and opportunities in safeguarding the nation’s digital landscape.

Focus on NIS2 Directive

A topic that garnered significant attention was the NIS2 Directive, set to be implemented into national law by October 17, 2024. Łukasz Wojewoda, Director of the Cybersecurity Department at the Ministry of Digital Affairs, shed light on this critical regulation, outlining its implications for cybersecurity governance in Poland. Secfense has released a special report that covers the analysis of the DORA and NIS2 Regulations in the Context of Enterprise Cybersecurity in the EU. You can download it here.

Partnership Between CISO #Poland and CyberMadeInPoland

A significant milestone was signing a cooperation agreement between CISO #Poland and the CyberMadeInPoland cluster, of which Secfense is a proud partner. This partnership represents a tremendous opportunity for all cluster members of Polish companies. It paves the way for building a robust cybersecurity ecosystem in Poland in collaboration with leading experts and security chiefs.

We at Secfense are honored to be part of this initiative and would like to extend our gratitude to the CISO #Poland foundation for the invitation and to NASK for hosting the event. The assembly was an occasion for learning and networking, and a catalyst for collective action in strengthening Poland’s cybersecurity framework.

For those who are deeply involved in the technical aspects of cybersecurity, such as enterprise architects, cybersecurity specialists, CIOs, and CTOs, events like these are invaluable. They provide a platform for sharing best practices, discussing emerging threats, and collaborating on solutions that have a far-reaching impact on national security.

We look forward to contributing to and participating in future events that continue to elevate the state of cybersecurity in Poland and beyond.

We are faced with new challenges every day. We must always be one step ahead of the attackers and know what they are going to do before they do it. We are convinced that the User Access Security Broker will bring security to a new level, both for those working at the office and from home. For us, working with Secfense is an opportunity to exchange experience with developers who put great value on out-of-the-box thinking.

As part of the pre-implementation analysis, we verified that users utilize a wide range of client platforms: desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and traditional mobile phones. Each of these devices differs in technological advancement, features, and level of security. Because of this, and also due to the recommendation of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (UKNF), we decided to introduce additional protection in the form of multi-factor authentication mechanisms based on FIDO. As a result, users of our applications can log in safely, avoiding common cyber threats such as phishing, account takeover, and theft of their own and their clients’ data.

Before investing in Secfense, we had the opportunity to talk to its existing clients. Their reactions were unanimous: wow, it’s so easy to use. We were particularly impressed by the fact that implementing their solution does not require the involvement of IT developers. It gives Secfense a huge advantage over the competition, and at the same time opens the door to potential customers who so far were afraid of changes related to the implementation of multi-factor authentication solutions.

Even when the network and infrastructure are secured enough, social engineering and passwords can be used to gain control of the system by attackers. Multifactor authentication is the current trend. Secfense addresses this and allows you to build zero trust security and upgrade your current systems to passwordless applications within minutes, solving this problem right away,” said Eduard Kučera, Partner at Presto Ventures and cybersecurity expert – former Director in hugely successful Czech multinational cyber security firm Avast.

One of the biggest challenges the world is facing today is securing our identity online. That’s why we were so keen to have Secfense in our portfolio. They make it possible to introduce strong authentication in an automated way. Until now, organizations had to selectively protect applications because the deployment of new technology was very hard, or even impossible. With Secfense, the implementation of multi-factor authentication is no longer a problem, and all organizations can use the highest standards of authentication security.

Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.
