ADS Drinks & Data: Information Security and the role of Data Science

ADS Drinks & Data: Information Security and the role of Data Science In the past decade, there has been an explosion in our data interactions with the world around us. Individuals and organizations are struggling to keep up with the revolutionary amount of data available and determining the value it holds. Organizations are recognizing the dire need to ride the data science roller coaster and the security paradigm that needs to re-invent itself. Only then will they keep up with all the possibilities these interactions will bring. But how secure are our interactions with this enormous amount of data? Join Amsterdam Data Science, APG, ABN AMRO and VU Amsterdam for this meetup as we discuss information security from the lenses of financial organizations. Keynote Speakers: Marcel Prins (COO, APG Asset Management), Dr. Martijn Dekker (CISO, ABN AMRO Bank), Herbert Bos (Head of VUSec Systems Security, VU) Date: Monday 15 April Time: 15:00-17:00 Location: Amsterdam Symphony Auditorium, Gustav Mahlerplein 3, 1082 MS
