Firm, CyberXchange hold confab, exhibition on cyber-security trends November 2
A leading international security company, RSA, has partnered with CyberXchange to hold a conference to update professionals on the essential security trends that will further enhance protection for companies and clients’ most valuable assets.
The conference, a global convergence of information security stakeholders, scheduled to hold at Landmark Event Centre, Lagos on November 2 and 3, 2016, is a direct response to this clear and present challenge in West Africa.
During the two-day conference, carefully-selected topics that will examine current cyber-security trends and practical solutions will be discussed by global industry leaders in Technology, IT audit, IT risk, cybersecurity professionals in finance/banking, e-commerce, digital media, telecommunications, oil & gas and government.
Besides, the exhibition will feature solution providers, product demos, product launches, a cybersecurity Hackathon and a chance for business-to-business introductions. Select schools that offer cybersecurity programmes will be on hand at the exhibition to meet interested candidates.
Also, workshops will be available alongside the conference on both days for practical ready-to-use training for IT security professionals and a unique master-class for chief executives to get a handle on cyber security at their organisations.
Speaking on the conference, Hashim Zein, a resident conference consultant, said: “The CyberXchange 2016 conference is part of our effort to aggregate the views of information security stakeholders and drive its practical applications. There will also be a Hackathon session at the conference aimed at developing the capacity of budding information security professionals.”
Also, Chief Marketing Officer at RSA Security, Holly Rollo, said: “We are happy to be part of the 2016 CyberXchange conference because as a security company, we understand that the worst time to build a breach communication plan is while the breach is happening.
“Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, the more systems we secure, the more secured we all are. Therefore, we hope that as a result of this conference, West Africa’s information technology sphere will be more developed.”
