AfriSecure in 2017

The 2nd annual Afrisecure Summit will bring to light the latest trends and technologies in the fight against cyber criminals.


Lead Sponsors of the 2nd edition of AfriSecure Cyber Security Summit, Mimecast, will be presenting the anatomy of a cyber-attack during a dedicated session.

Do you know how to contain a data breach before it poisons the rest of your business?

It can take 229 days before your business realizes it's been breached...that's a dangerously long time for cybercriminals to have access to your customer's private information. Your financial security, your reputation and your employees could all be at risk and it's your responsibility to guide the business through it.

Business owners and key decision makers, CIOs, IT managers, Risk and Compliance Officers and those in financial leadership positions should join us as we dissect a cyber-attack alongside a host of industry and business leaders, as well as provide insight into how to manage and ultimately prevent falling prey to a data breach.
