Event Summary

As the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to spread worldwide, cyber-threat actors are trying to capitalize on the global health crisis and the heightened sense of uncertainty, doubt and fear by creating malware or launching attacks with a COVID-19 theme. In addition, many organisations have had to radically change their way of working almost overnight, with most employees now working from home. If appropriate security measures are not in place, this can fundamentally increase the risk of cyber security attacks.

Consequently, it has never been more vital to remain aware of the methods and tools in use by attackers and the state-of-the-art in best practices and technologies available to security practitioners. ITWeb Security Summit 2020 draws on the insights of industry experts, analysts and end users to deliver an agenda aligned with the specific threats and opportunities facing African CISOs, security specialists, risk officers and CIOs.

Why should you sponsor?

ITWeb’s Security Summit is THE South African business event of choice in the information security industry. The 2019 event was attended by over 650 delegates and had over 45 sponsors represented. The 2020 event aims to deliver a high-profile conference and business exhibition in a virtual format that will equip delegates with tools to tackle today’s mission-critical security objectives in the wake of the Covid 19 pandemic.

ITWeb Security Summit 2020 provides you with a virtual platform to not only showcase but also to demo your security solutions, services and technologies to qualified senior level decision makers. Our virtual booths allow you to provide a meeting place for attendees to visit and get more information on your products and solutions. Data on who has visited your booth will be provided to you after the event for you to actively follow up on.

In addition, the virtual format allows us to offer our sponsors the option to engage further with attendees via one of the following:

Breakout sessions – a smaller group of delegates will join you in a 30-minute session to discuss a specific security-related topic of your choice and moderated by one of your senior executives.

Learning/demo labs – demonstrate your product or solution in a virtual lab, allowing delegates to view its capabilities first hand and ask questions.

Our campaign provides you with exposure before, during and after the event using ITWeb’s communication channels, including ITWeb Online, Brainstorm and other business press.
