Join us at the 15th Annual ITWeb Security Summit 2020 and showcase your products and solutions to the largest audience of information and cybersecurity professionals in South Africa.


Attend this event and hear the latest updates from over 50 international and local information and cybersecurity experts!

Due to the continuing uncertainty as to when large gatherings and events will be allowed to take place this year, ITWeb has taken the decision to turn this year’s Security Summit into a virtual event. As a result, we will be running only one event on 25 - 28 August 2020. The conference will now take place over 3 days and our workshops will take place on the last day. We will still be bringing you our usual impressive line-up of international and local speakers who will be addressing the impact of Covid 19 on cybersecurity as well as other latest developments in cybersecurity threats and solutions. Sessions will be available to attend live and on demand.

Our registration fees have also been adjusted to reflect this change in format. Pay just one price and get access to all sessions and workshops!

Early bird prices are available now
