We rely on technology more than we really want to. Therefore it’s important that technology is available, protected and secure. Unfortunately, most technology that is available is quite vulnerable and can be easily hacked. And to be honest, how much do we know about Cyber Security at all?
Through intense brainstorming, different expertise and top-notch mentors, a lot can be done in a day. What might be a daunting task alone, can be easily done together!
During the day, we will brainstorm about different challenges and problems in the field together with Cyber Security experts, learn how to pitch, elaborate on your ideas (if you have any) and develop them further. You'll have the opportunity to find new team members, get some insight and know more about starting your own Cyber Security startup.
Idea Garage is not your regular workshop, where people gather together, talk a lot and then go home and forget about it. It is a much-needed gathering, where initial ideas will mature and be ready for the next stage. Through well structured sessions, help of skilled mentors and team work, these ideas will be turned into paper prototypes by the end of the day.
Idea Garage will bring together people from many different fields: non-technical and technical people, cyber security or data protection professionals, designers, developers, marketers, passionate project managers and much more!
