Amir Vashkover, Philips
Head of Philips Data Security
Amir Vashkover is a seasoned technology leader with vast experience in both operational and leadership roles within the field of Cybersecurity. He currently leads Philips’ Data Protection division after a stint as Information & Markets Cyber Security Officer for the EMEA region. Before that, Amir served CyberMDX as both CISO and VP of Strategic Alliances & Partner Management. He holds a university degree in Electrical & Computer engineering from the Ben-Gurion University, and an MBA from the Bar-llan University in Israel. Prior to his commercial career Amir has served the Israeli Military, up to the rank of Lt. Col (res.) leading large field units.
Cybersecurity has been a volatile field: from computing arms races with hackers to zero-day exploits, security professionals have always had to be flexible. That is especially true however when it comes to the recent developments in quantum computing. It is not if, but when, quantum computing becomes commercially viable, it is expected to be able to break virtually all existing encryption techniques. This means that data can be stolen now and decrypted in the future in the so-called “Harvest Now, Decrypt Later” paradigm. Therefor these threats do not only require a well thought out multi-pronged response but time is of the essence as well.
