Why sponsor ITWeb Security Summit 2017?

ITWeb events attract senior level business decision-makers across the ICT industry. Our content expertise is in the ICT industry and covers a broad spectrum of relevant topics, from cyber security to the cloud and everything in between.

Our campaign provides you with exposure before, during and after the event using ITWeb's communication channels, including ITWeb Online, Brainstorm and other business press.

Position your brand as a serious player in the information security space and take advantage of the marketing opportunities available to you.

Your clients are becoming increasingly demanding as the environment they have traditionally played in becomes more digital.

Their business models are having to adapt to a mobile workforce; a digital economy; a fiercely competitive landscape; as well as criminals that are more innovative and malicious in their threat and attack tactics.
