Why Infosecurity?

According to Techcabal, Africa is losing $4 billion annually to cybercrime. However, cybercrime hurts companies beyond their financials, leading to data loss, theft of intellectual property and financial and/or personal information, and damage to brand and reputation.

Africa’s poor cybersecurity also means the region is now targeted by cybercriminals as the “soft underbelly” of global business networks. In Africa, many countries have seen a rise in digital threats and malicious cyber activities.

Ironically, Africa’s rapid technological evolution makes the region an attractive target for cybercriminals. Therefore the need for an event that brings together all stakeholders in this crucial sector has never been more relevant. Infosecurity offers that opportunity.
