Telegroup Infosec conference was launched with the aim of raising the level of IT security of the Western Balkans and has become one of the most important IT Security events in this region. Telegroup as an IT company dealing with security technologies, wanted to support the efforts of regional IT associations to draw attention to state structures and the general public about information security as the most important resource of each state, as well as to the existence of increasingly sophisticated threats in cyber space that could jeopardize the stability of the regional economy and societies. In that sense, it is necessary to introduce systematic mechanisms for protection against cybercrime, which is a common responsibility of state structures and economy, where IT companies are expected to provide quality solutions.
Through cooperation with the global leaders in Network, Data, Application and Cloud Security, Telegroup launched its first conference in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2011, in Serbia in 2013, and since 2015, Infosec is regularly held on the Montenegrin market. The company’s long term goal is to organize a conference which will each year deal with the most current topics in the field of information security and together with IT Security partners, propose solutions that will help businesses and state institutions to protect overall information resources.
Telegroup, is one of the leading technology providers in the field of information and communication technologies in the Western Balkans, organizes for the sixth time Infosec conference dedicated to information security. We support Telegroup as IT company who makes efforts to draw attention to increasingly sophisticated threats, but also to give suggestions on how to, in the process of digital transformation, companies can protect not only their IT resources, but overall business.
