DDOS Mitigation

DISTRIBUTED DENIAL OF Service (DDoS) attacks are a real threat businesses and organizations deal with daily, but this does not mean they have to endure the slashes of service or slowdowns attacks bring on.


Application Security and DevOps

Rapid application delivery is dramatically transforming how software is created and delivered, pushing the limits on the speed and innovation required of development teams.

Mobile Security

“Bring Your Own Device”, (BYOD) is most definitely a security incident waiting to happen for many businesses. But in Africa, where many employees own multiple devices, the risks are stacked even higher.


Cybercriminals have emerged to feed off this burgeoning market, targeting innocent users with a wide range of malware. Today, ransomware has emerged as one of the most troublesome malware categories of our time.


The advisory panel members are instrumental in assisting with the conceptualisation and crafting of the conference agenda.
