Digital Show Guide 2018!



AfriSecure will create awareness around cyber security threats that organisations face today, as well as a look to the future. The summit seeks to unite organisations & solution providers with the goal of protecting information.

A cyber security ecosystem as the key to security

Not one product will ever completely protect your organisation, and at the same time too many point systems become unmanageable, unwieldy and ineffective. Current best practice ties together Intrusion Detection (IDS), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) software, and Privileged Access Management (PAM). This combination offers a sophisticated way to address frequency, complexity and rapidly changing nature of cyber attacks. This session will explore the best practice application of cyber security ecosystems and the nuanced strategy that keeps them in balance and your organisation protected.

Aligning the board for risk, governance and compliance

An organisation will never be free from cyber threats and the effects of a breach can have significant impact on company earnings, with hundreds of millions of dollars being swept from the valuation in a matter of hours. Boards must do more than simply view metrics, resource allocations and compliance reports – there needs to be an active interest in protecting the organisations information assets as its very existence may depend on it. CISO’s will need to proactively engage with the board on the cyber security strategy in mitigating risk and developing a secure and balanced security ecosystem. This session will prepare CISO’s, CEO’s and board members for strategic alignment with resource allocation and the wider organisational strategy to protect organisations.
