Open forums it-sa Expo&Congress 2022

In 2022, it-sa Expo&Congress was once again an important trend barometer and provided important industry insights with a comprehensive supporting programme. The spectrum ranges from expert lectures on current security topics from the fields of technology and management, to product-independent contributions in the "it-sa insights" series of topics, to an accompanying congress programme. You can look forward to top-class lectures and a diverse exchange at the highest professional level in the Knowledge Forums.

Open lecture stages

On three days of the exhibition, an attractive non-stop programme will take place in the specialist forums at it-sa. Exhibitors and partner associations of it-sa will show where the journey in IT security is heading in the specialist lectures, study analyses and discussions. In the it-sa insights, experts will provide product-neutral, up-to-date insights into industries, trends, legal issues and special topics. With Startups@it-sa, it-sa also offers young international IT security companies a platform to present themselves to trade visitors in the forums.

Personalities such as Edward Snowden, IT security expert Paula Januszkiewicz and Maximilian Schrems have already used the last day of the trade fair to take stock of data protection and IT security.
