In an increasingly connected, digital world, cybersecurity 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 will for the second year be held in Cape Town and will bring together 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.
