Cyber Security Symposium Africa

Cyber Security Symposium Africa

Every day there are new reports of data breaches, cyber-attacks and security bugs affecting IT services and applications. Despite having the necessary security measures in place, the public and private sectors are still at high risk of being attacked by cybercriminals, mainly due to human error.

Now in its third year, the Cyber Security Symposium Africa (CSSA) is an annual event that brings together those in the security sector to share knowledge and ideas and identify possible collaborations. The symposium is proudly sponsored by Dimension Data and Cisco.

This year’s theme brings into focus that cybersecurity, often mischaracterised as an IT responsibility, is a shared responsibility and a risk that affects us all. Key experts from various sectors, who work in the security field, will share their knowledge and experiences addressing information and cybersecurity-related matters and provide guidance to those in attendance on how to effectively manage their own cybersecurity strategies.

CSSA, therefore, hopes to show that by working together we can combat this ongoing risk.
