Join us for the first-ever Security Festival in Norway!

In August 2019, something extra special will happen within the Norwegian security community: Norway’s first-ever Security Festival!

Norway’s first national festival for cybersecurity is taking place in Lillehammer, 26-28 August, 2019.

Registration for the Security Festival is open!

The Security Festival 2019 (“Sikkerhetsfestivalen 2019”) will be held on 26-28 August in Lillehammer, Norway. The three-day festival starts on Monday with keynotes and plenary sessions before we meet for a garden party and celebration of the ISF’s 25th anniversary in the evening. There will be parallel tracks running on Tuesday and Wednesday in the festival area, in the center of Lillehammer. 

For talks and sessions on security culture (“Sikkerhetskultur”), you’ll want to join us at the World’s Theatre (“Verdensteateret”) on Tuesday. Here you will find number of excellent talks focused on the people-side of security, including “Experiences from Measurement of Security Culture” with Kai Roer and Espen Otterstad.

Sharing our experiences of measuring security culture

On Tuesday, 27th August, at 15:30, CLTRe CEO Kai Roer and ABAX CISO Espen Otterstad will take to the stage at Verdensteateret to share their lessons and learnings having measured security culture at Abax for three-years running.

Founded in 2009, ABAX is the fastest growing telematics company in Europe. Otterstad wanted to extend the security scope beyond pure technology controls and establish a security culture baseline for the organisation. He also needed clear and precise metrics to share with the Board and be able to demonstrate improvements or conversely, areas for improvements. This meant focusing on the human as the last line of defence from cybersecurity threats.

In order to fulfil the requirements of measuring ABAX’s security culture baseline—while being able to deliver a concise KPI measurement for the Board and management team—Otterstad initiated conversation with Kai Roer, CEO of CLTRe, now a KnowBe4 company.

In this talk, Roer and Otterstad will go through the need for measurement, what measurements can be used for, and they will also discuss various measures to improve safety culture. 

Join us in Lillehammer next week!

We are delighted to invite you to the Security Festival on 26-28 August in the center of Lillehammer and at the Scandic Lillehammer Hotel.

What is the Security Festival?

With ambitions of being Norway’s largest and most important security event, the Security Festival is three-day event being held first time in 2019. Being advertised as “an arena for exchange of experience”, it is a unifying arena for anyone with an interest or responsibility for cyber, ICT and information security to exchange knowledge and share their experience.

ISF Norway invited the largest information security organizations in Norway to create a festival for anyone interested in security. For those who are familiar with the traditional ISF conference format in Norway, this new festival, initiated by ISF Norway for its 25th anniversary, replaces the “ISF Autumn Conference” (which is usually open to members only). 

The Security Festival (Sikkerhetsfestivalen) is organized in close collaboration with: National Security Authority (NSM), Oppland County Municipality, Lillehammer Municipality, NTNU, UiO, ISACA, Cloud Security Alliance, The Norwegian Data Association, The Association of Municipal Information Security (KiNS), Difi, NorSIS and ICT Norway.

CLTRe are listed as one of the sponsors of the event. The three-day event will be held in Lillehammer city center and at the Scandic Lillehammer Hotel between 26-28th August. For more information (in Norwegian) on the festival, go to:
