ITWeb Security Summit 2018 is committed to providing you with the answers to your most pressing cyber security concerns and questions – we will support you in meeting the needs of an ever-changing threat landscape!

Being a truly digital business is all about being innovative and agile while at the same time remaining vigilant and aware of the turbulent cyber threat landscape. Technologies such as cloud, big data, IOT and blockchain, as well as the plethora of mobile devices and apps, further complicate the situation and security experts are expected to adapt or die.

Business leaders are demanding faster application development, customers and employees demand increasing flexibility with digital devices, and threats become more sophisticated and ubiquitous. CISOs can't afford to miss a beat when working towards creating a bulletproof enterprise defence.

This is the only event in southern Africa that guarantees to connect C-Suite and Senior Executives who are responsible for protecting their companies' critical infrastructures with innovative solution providers and renowned local and international information security experts.
