SBS Consultants will be hosting the inaugural Information & Cyber Security Symposium at Crowne Plaza Monomotapa Hotel on the 8th of July. This will be a half-day event aimed at Executives and C-Level management.
By the Deputy Editor – Shingie Lev Muringi
Companies and organizations worldwide are facing advanced cyber threats by all types of adversaries. The art and form of these threats evolve from single to multiple vectors, reaching from waves to bursts, evolving in shape and size. Ransomware, Advanced Persistent Threats, and the leak of sensitive information are amongst the most notorious threats.
In light of this, organizations need to start embedding Information and Cyber Security into their overall business strategies. The delegates who will include CIOs, IT Directors, CISOs and Risk Executives from large organizations and companies will discuss case studies, best practices, and hear from our experts about innovative ways to prevent/mitigate advanced information and cyber threats targeting their organizations.
SBS CEO, Mr Isheanesu Sithole said “At SBS, our philosophy is that all complex problems can be solved by simple solutions. Being secure goes beyond putting in place the latest Firewall and Antivirus software. Information Technology (IT) has become the most prolific tool to all organizations with many benefits being realised”.
“However, its pervasive nature has also brought about many risks that need to be addressed. This symposium is the first of many initiatives aimed at raising Information & Cyber Security awareness in local enterprises. We’ve also been selected to host this year’s Information & Cyber Security Summit in Victoria Falls.”
