DellEMC sponsors the forthcoming CIO100 Symposium and Awards, an annual event that began in 2010 as the company promotes the Dell’s and EMC’s respective strong capabilities.
DellEMC’s strong capabilities make it an ideal partner for the event scheduled for 9th and 10th November in Naivasha as the company strives to not only drive the digital transformation of their customers and partners businesses but also has a key stake in protecting their most important asset, information.
Security is also an important entity to CIO East Africa- one of the key talking points for the forthcoming event, a statement the CEO echoed recently at the Africa Security Summit, “We continue to thank all those of you who keep supporting us by attending our events. The reason why we hold these events is to broaden your knowledge on Security. Let you experience latest innovation as well as expand your connections,” said Laura Chite CEO CIO East Africa at Africa.
Dell and EMC partnership is taking a crucial turn with Security a major issue as the two are currently on the final stages of deal.
“The deal shows our capacity growth a move made, to better serve businesses within the East African market,” said Mr. Ken Kagota, Dell’s Client Solutions Specialist.” It would be an honour to network with CIOs at the forthcoming CIO100 Symposium and Awards.”
Information and Security have been moving hand in hand as ransomware attacks have risen by over 250% in 2017 according to a report by the security firm Kaspersky. The company stated that ransomware attackers have portrayed a clear trend of having targeted ransomware attacks against businesses as they are potentially more profitable than mass attacks against private users.
“A successful ransomware attack against a company can easily stop its business processes for hours or even days, making owners of affected companies more likely to pay the ransom,” Kaspersky stated.
