Over the past couple of years, as organisations have had to rapidly deploy cloud and digital technologies in order to stay open, the need to protect their distributed workforces and infrastructure has become more important than ever.

The practically overnight mass exodus to remote working saw the attack surface widen dramatically, leading to a slew of new threats, attacks and breaches.

This year’s Security Summit, themed: “Driving the business value of cyber security in an era of accelerated change”, will once again bring together leading international and local industry experts, analysts and end-users to unpack the latest threats facing African CISOs, CIOs, security specialists and risk officers.
