advisory board
The key advisory board for the ITWeb Security Summit 2014 comprises various industry players. They are tasked with providing objective insights and guidance to ensure that this annual event’s content reflects the information requirements of the industry and the delegates, who are a mix of CISO-level management and operational security managers.
Sinisa Jovanovic

Technical director, ITWeb
Sinisa Jovanovic has been the technical director at ITWeb since its inception in 1996. The ITWeb media group is South Africa’s leading technology business-to-business publisher, with content platforms catering to a range of sectors. Offering online, digital and print titles, including Brainstorm magazine and events, ITWeb is now expanding into Africa and offers news analysis and key business information to focused business audiences.

Mobility, cloud computing and security are at the top on the list of his priorities as head of ITWeb's technical department. Accommodating the ever-changing needs of the company's wide reader base, as well as catering to its advertising clients' requirements means he and his team must deliver content quickly, when and where ITWeb's audience needs it.

Jovanovic ensures ITWeb remains agile enough to move with the latest trends, but secure enough to ensure its readers and clients have faith in its systems. Jovanovic obtained a BSc and a Masters’ degree in electrical engineering from the University of Belgrade in 1990. In 1992, Jovanovic became a PhD candidate at the University of Witwatersrand’s School of Electrical Engineering.
