Anyone who has attended many trade shows and conferences in the automotive and cybersecurity sectors knows: Away from the very official agenda, you get a lot of extremely valuable impetus. It is the in-depth discussions, the pointed professional exchange and the dialog-oriented presentation formats in which truly new insights emerge. This is exactly what the Pre-Conference Event at CYRES Consulting within the Automotive Cybersecurity Europe Conference 2023 is supposed to offer you.

Inspiration and in-depth education
