2022 Agenda

Building Cyber Resilient Infrastructures for Enhanced Service Delivery

Over the past few years, cyber incidents, such as the recent ransomware attacks on the City of JohannesburgTransnet, and the Department of Justice in South Africa, have demonstrated that public sector organisations and State Owned Enterprises remain key targets for hackers and cyber criminals.

Interpol’s African Cyberthreat Assessment Report for 2021 found that, Cyber-attacks cost South Africa R2.2 billion per annum, and an Accenture report on digital safety found that South Africa experiences roughly 577 malware-attacks per hour.

 

In light of the recent spate of cyber-attacks in the public sector, the time has come for public sector organisations and SOEs to reassess their cybersecurity strategies and invest in upgrading infrastructure, skills, and technology to mitigate and protect against future attacks.

 

At this year’s Public Sector Security Summit 2022 (#PubliSec2022), you will also have the opportunity to network virtually with best-in-class solution providers and senior colleagues from across the region, sharing challenges and strategies to improve your organisation’s approach toward cybersecurity resilience.

Topics will outline emerging threats against the public sector, global cybersecurity and data protection best practices, and how to mitigate risks.

These sessions are available to all registered attendees.
