Global digital transformation leader Atos to present itself at CEBIT14 May/ 2018
Whether from data breaches, ransomware, hacked passwords or DDoS attacks, the losses caused by cyber attacks on businesses, research institutions, government and individuals are a major drag on the economy. Last year, in Germany alone, some 23 million people fell victim to cybercrime. While digitization brings a wealth of new opportunities, there is also a pressing need for new strategies and tools to safeguard against the risks.
Atos - a global leader in digital transformation - has confirmed it will be exhibiting at CEBIT 2018, both in Hall 13 and on the d!campus. Atos ranks among Europe's foremost providers of solutions for cybersecurity, big data, high-performance computing and the digital workplace. Headquartered in France and with offices worldwide, the company supports and facilitates digital transformation across all sectors, including manufacturing, chemicals, transport and logistics, energy and utilities, banking and insurance, commerce, media, education, publishing and telecommunications, healthcare and the public sector. Atos has profound IT security expertise - a fact also attested to by the certification granted to Atos by Germany's Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) as an IT security services provider, advisor and penetration tester. In this role, Atos Germany is supporting organizations such as the Goethe Institute (Gemany's worldwide cultural institute) with comprehensive know-how and guidance on strategies and processes aimed at maximizing IT security. This partly involves ongoing evaluation and tweaking of security policies and procedures, technical security tests and the training of employees at every operational level.
"Atos values CEBIT as a key platform for engaging in dialogue on digital transformation with its customers," commented Ursula Morgenstern, CEO of Atos Germany. "We believe the new format will further enhance the show's appeal as the leading trade fair for digital technologies and innovation," she said.

"With its new thematic lineup, revamped event formats and an attractive new approach, CEBIT 2018 is reinventing itself as a major business festival for innovation and digitization," remarked Frese. "It will combine tried-and-tested tradeshow elements, inspiring conference events and innovative networking platforms. We are delighted that Atos - a major provider of big data and cybersecurity solutions - is on board with us for the all-new CEBIT journey, with a pavilion to showcase its appreciable strengths on the d!campus."
