Review | Supporting Programme 2023

Forum contributions | Special Keynote | Congress@it-sa | Startups@it-sa | it-sa Digital Preview Day | it-sa@home

During it-sa Expo&Congress 2023, trade fair visitors were able to experience a unique range of information. The freely accessible lecture programme with expert contributions on current security topics from the fields of technology and management and the product-neutral contributions and discussion rounds from the it-sa insights series brought the latest industry expertise to Nuremberg. 

In addition, the congress programme Congress@it-sa, which started the day before, offered an intensive exchange on current IT security topics in cooperation with renowned associations and organisations.

With the it-sa Digital Preview Day, the community had an opportunity to inform itself digitally and interactively about the upcoming trade fair, and with the hybrid stream it-sa@home, the it-sa Expo&Congress could also be experienced digitally by the community.

Three days of concentrated IT security know-how - that was it-sa Expo&Congress 2023!
