Information and its timely utilization, as well as renewal through digitalisation, are on the agenda of all companies. The virtual Subcontracting Fair brings stimuli and solutions to this theme and offers partnerships.

Jarno Limnéll: Security must also be taken into account in data

Virtual Subcontracting is an example of the current state of the world where the corona pandemic has forced people into an unprecedented digital leap. The theme sponsor for subcontracting in terms of security is Aalto University’s professor of cyber security Jarno Limnéll, according to which the importance of taking care of security has become more important with the digital leap. This also applies to the most important capital of our time, namely data.

– The corona pandemic can already be estimated to have accelerated the digital leap by three to four years. This leap is partly made in the face of compulsion. It is not just a question of the increasingly powerful transition of business and other activities to the digital world, but also of the fact that almost everything is being connected to the Internet at an accelerating pace and data is being collected about almost everything. In this development, safety must not be left behind, but must be strongly taken into account in all activities. If this is not done, the risk of losing trust increases. And it is very difficult to regain lost trust, Limnéll writes in his Subcontracting column.
