It is imperative that companies are aware of cyber security and have the agility to deal with each new security threat as it arises. The cost to businesses is staggering. In just the last 12 months, there has been a 12% increase in the number of attacks, and the average cost of a breach to a South African company this year was R32.4 million, up from R28.6 million, according to the latest research from the Ponemon Institute.

There is no longer an 'if' when talking about being directly affected by criminal activity, only a 'when'. As the person responsible for information security in your company, it is your job to guard against these attacks.

The ITWeb Security Summit 2018 - Cape Town will address information security in a purely business context, which will enable you to respond effectively and protect what matters most – your data, your revenue, and your staff.
