Key topics to be discussed at CISO Africa 2019

The agenda for CISO Africa 2019 is taking shape, with a host of international speakers, local IT security leaders and practitioners taking us through a diverse range of key topics including:

The Role of the CISO: How should the role of the CISO relate to the CIO and the rest of the board? What will the role of the CISO look like in five or ten years’ time?

AI & Automated Security: Can AI not only identify threats, but also remediate and pre-empt them? Can we build self-learning systems that can ward off all threats? Can AI be used for authentication and access control?

Cloud Security: What are the risks and benefits to migrating to the cloud? Can the cloud improve IT security management? Are you open to using third parties, and do you have a risk management strategy in place?

Blockchain: Can the use of distributed ledgers mitigate threats? Are there limitations of blockchain, and what would be the reality if it were to be adopted globally?

Digital Transformation Security: Are we opening ourselves up to increased threats? How are we protecting ourselves against cyber-savvy criminals?

Balancing Risk with Investment: How much of your IT budget should go towards security? Is there a ceiling to how much investment should be made?

Regulations & Compliance: What are the customer/business challenges for ensuring data security (the integrity of data) and data privacy (control of data)?

There will be additional discussions around upskilling teams, security by design, relationships with data analytics teams, IoT security, DevSecOps, access control, remote working and many more probing topics. You can view the full agenda here:
