Africa Cloud & Security Summit


The Africa Cloud and Security Summit is part of the CIO East Africa’s Africa Summit Series.  The summit will offer an immersive platform where the sector IT leaders from both the supply and demand side can meet and interact. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to position your business as a market leader.


What was once considered impossible is now being rewritten. Innovation is accelerating because of what cloud can already do. The future of cloud is now and the world is in the cloud.

But, while the cloud has become a mainstream choice for the delivery of applications, services and infrastructure, cybersecurity has remained a concern. Reports of security breaches and cyber-attacks at major companies are quite common today.

The assessment is that you’ve been breached, you just don’t know it yet. It has reached a point where experts now believe that there are only two types of companies, those that have been breached and those that are yet to be breached. Leaving organisations in a limbo of whether to adopt the cloud or not.

However, the cloud technology is just inevitable. This has then created an environment, where companies are worried about protecting against data loss, the privacy of data and preventing breaches, forgetting that all cloud requires specialized skills, unique tools and new policies to ensure that a company stays secure in the age of disruption.

The Cloud-Security Summit is a two-day event that will let you engage with the foremost minds leading the cloud revolution and learn how the modern enterprise is benefiting from the latest in cloud technology in unprecedented way.

Through a unique blend of focused Executive Visions panel discussions, Analyst sessions, visionary Keynote presentations and networking breaks, technology executives will share insight and gain critical takeaways.

The Africa Cloud-Security Summit agenda will also offer a balanced schedule that will maximize your time and efforts, providing participants with brilliant ideas and strategies to positively change business practices.
