With barely a fortnight to the East Africa Cloud and Security Summit (CSS) curated by Rwanda Information Society Authority (RISA) and CIO East Africa, Oracle and INTRASOFT International have both partnered with the event organizers to host the event in Kigali, Rwanda.
Themed Safe and Secure Services Online, the two day Summit, slated on 28th – 29th March, 2019, brings together diverse Security Industry players from across the world to the regional event.
The insightful summit purposed to link cloud and security vendors across a myriad of industries and facilitate the meeting with regional cloud vendors all in one convenient location
According the Rwanda Information Society Authority (RISA) and CIO East Africa, it’s a cloud world now. In many facets of business, from app development to code deployment to infrastructure updates, the flux that comes with constant change is the new norm. This often leaves IT and leadership in a state of quiet desperation, feeling the prospect of securing all cloud assets, at all times, everywhere, to be distant at best.
“We are indebted to the partners who are on-boarding the arrangement to forthcoming Cloud and Security Summit,” said Ms Laura Chite, CEO CIO East Africa adding: “Individuals as well as entrepreneurs will learn about the most cutting-edge security solutions through demonstrations from solution providers.
Today, organisations may have apps and data spread across Software as a Service (SaaS), private cloud, public cloud, multi or even hybrid cloud environments, but without certainty of the right security in place to protect everything everywhere. Protection of data where it resides is thus critical.
In addition to being an information-packed event, the CSS is also a fantastic networking opportunity for powerful C-Suite executives, entrepreneurs, and leaders from across the region.
While securing sponsorship, the two companies separately asserted their commitment to collaborate with other industry stakeholders to elevate the security and cloud uptake.
