ITWeb Security Summit 2019

27 May: Half-day workshops
28 & 29 May: Conference & exhibition
30 & 31 May: Training
Sandton Convention Centre


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.

This week we focus on: Graham Cluley

Independent computer security expert, public speaker,
co-host of "Smashing Security" podcast

Our keynote speaker Graham Cluley has been fighting cyber crime since the early 1990s. He is a well-respected computer security expert, renowned for his award winning blog on computer security news and advice.

Graham Cluley fights cyber crime. He started as a programmer, kickstarting his career by writing the first ever version of Dr Solomon’s Anti-Virus Toolkit for Windows. Since then he has been employed in senior roles by companies such as Sophos and McAfee. In 2011, he was even inducted into the Infosecurity Europe Hall of Fame.

Now, Graham focuses on raising awareness of threats to computer security with his award-winning blog. Graham is a researcher, podcaster, and public speaker who has given hundreds of talks about computer security for some of the world’s largest companies, worked with law enforcement agencies on investigations into hacking groups, and regularly appears on TV and radio explaining computer security threats. His podcast, Smashing Security, which he makes together with two other computer security veterans, is a great resource on what’s going on with computer security.

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.
