Brought to you by Brainstorm, in partnership with MTN Business

As technology has taken centre stage in revolutionising the business landscape, so has the CISO. As companies' Cloud migration and digital transformation strategies have accelerated, the need to protect corporate networks, digital assets and other critical infrastructure from cyber attacks has become mission critical. Moreover; with the advent of intensified implementation of remote and hybrid working, the attack surface has widened substantially, which has led to a proliferation of cyber breaches and ransomware. All these changes continue to be experienced by entities as they evolve to being digital organisations, have led to cyber security becoming an essential investment in the future sustainability of every business.

To reflect on these changes and how they affect the operations of the CISO and his/her position and role within their organisation in order to be able to properly strategise, ITWeb, in partnership with MTN Business, have commenced South Africa’s first industry-wide cyber security survey.

The results of this definitive annual cyber security survey will be released at this illustrious gathering, the inaugural ITWeb Security Summit CISO Banquet 2022.

Don’t miss the chance to gain access to this ground-breaking research, and network with the South African CISOs and other relevant c-suite executives who participated in the survey.

About The Polo Room

The Inanda Club was founded in 1934 with the purpose of providing a home for equestrian sports. The club was located in, what was then, the countryside north of Rosebank and it is doubtful that the founders imagined that the area would become the commercial CBD of Africa.

However urbanisation followed those pioneers and rather than being swamped by development, the Inanda Club has evolved the Sandton venue into a modern city club with a distinct equestrian and country character. This town club, combined with the Inanda Country Base in Kyalami, provides premier equestrian facilities fulfilling the objectives of the founding sections of Polo and the Rand Hunt.

This unique club now offers much more, with facilities that have a wide appeal. In addition to the equestrian sports, the club has a gym, tennis courts, a swimming pool, two bars, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms, accommodation and a spectacular, large function venue.
