In an increasingly connected, digital world, cyber security threats are constantly evolving and increasing in number and sophistication. Security professionals need to be up to speed with the latest technologies, techniques and skills for predicting and mitigating potentially crippling cyber attacks, the methods and tools in use by today's threat actors, and the latest legal and compliance demands.

The ITWeb Security Summit 2019, now in its 14th year, will bring together again leading international and local industry experts, analysts and end-users to unpack the latest threats facing African CISOs, CIOs, security specialists and risk officers, demystify emerging cyber security strategies in AI, blockchain, IOT, DevSecOps and more, and explain how to increase an organisation's cyber resiliency.


The ITWeb Security Summit is a platform for delegates to learn about the latest developments in information and cybersecurity risks, research and trends. This event covers everything from the latest threats to critical information and cyber security infrastructure, plus everything in between.

Do you have the information that CISOs, CIOs, heads of information security and cyber security need to stay up to date and informed?

We're looking for presentations that provide today's organisations with the insights they need to mitigate the current IT and cyber security risks.


  • Identify threats: Explore the latest security threats to your organisation.
  • Create awareness: Understand how to combat user ignorance by implementing innovative user-awareness programmes.
  • Ensure compliance: Learn how to comply with local and international data protection and privacy legislation.
  • Safeguard assets: Understand how to protect critical networks and data through effective endpoint detection and response strategies.
  • Learn what works and what doesn't: Gain insights into successful security strategies and best practices.
  • Experience it: Witness demonstrations of the latest information and cyber security tools and techniques.
  • Explore options: Speak directly with suppliers, providing a wide range of innovative security products and solutions.
  • Exchange ideas: Network with your peers and industry experts.

The BIG Idea – ITWeb Security Summit

New security events are always going to find their way into the South African events calendar. The difference between ITWeb's annual Security Summit and other security events is that, unlike others, we're here to stay and we deliver!

ITWeb Security Summit 2019 is the 14th annual event for industry: we listen to our market and we consistently deliver on a campaign and event platform that speaks to your ultimate goal – ROI.

Top international, African and local speakers will again ensure this summit continues to build on its legacy as the 'must attend' gathering for every IT, security and business decision-maker who is serious about promoting excellence in information security to the benefit of his/her company and the information security community as a whole.
