Panel discussion Assessing SA's national cyber risk 'thermometer' - what is our national risk level and how prepared are we in the case of an attack?

The probability and impact of cyber-attacks was rated as the top man-influenced risk facing countries and organisations in the recent 2018 World Economic Forum Global Risks Landscape report. The health, safety, security, economic well-being of citizens, effective functioning of government, and perhaps even the survival of the industrialised world, relies heavily upon interconnected critical systems. A country may experience widespread disruption or even loss of human life if these systems become inoperable. South African organisations responsible for critical infrastructure need to have a consistent and iterative risk-based approach towards identifying, assessing and managing cybersecurity risk. During this facilitated discussion, Craig will engage with key public and private sector stakeholders to discuss:

  • The current cyber risk challenges facing SA
  • Who are the main public and private institutions accountable at a national level?
  • What is the current state of our country's readiness to mitigate these threats?
  • Proposed initiatives and timelines and possible opportunities for joint public/private partnerships
