Protec partners with CIO East Africa to host CIO100 Symposium


Professional Technologies (Protec) has partnered with Thales and Thycotic to start the conversation on information security at this year’s eagerly awaited CIO 100 Symposium & Awards slated on 28th – 30th November, 2018 in Naivasha, Kenya.

Protec a NASDAQ-listed, agile EMEA company, capable of responding quickly to rapid changes in the risk landscape is a member of Cyber1 company, an International Information Security, Governance, Risk and Compliance service provider, with its global headquarters now in Stockholm, Sweden.

“As a company that provides specialist products and services purposed to reduce cyber risks and become resilient to attacks, we are delighted to partner with organisers of CIO100 Symposium to discuss and learn changes in the IT field from security resilience perspective,” Kenneth Ngau, Protec, Digital Analyst- Marketing, said.

“With organizations constantly looking for ways to improve efficiencies to grow competitive advantage, engagement with Protec during the CIO 100 Symposium will be an insightful experience,” said Laura Chite, CEO – CIO East Africa.

“We are hoping to get more leads or opportunities and connect with people and key decision makers who are interested in cyber security solutions now or in the near future. Also, to get referrals for our services while creating brand awareness,” Ngau added.

“Customer experience, once the sole province of marketing and sales — nowadays belongs to IT leaders as well hence the need of having it safe and secure,” Ms Chite added while lauding the timely partnership with Protec.

Chite asserted that companies with the most strongly aligned, collaborative senior executives will be the ones outpacing their rivals in the race to digitize business.

While sharing the overall expectations of the 2018 Symposium Ms. Chite posed some questions: “How can IT organizations do a better job of innovating and driving business transformation? How can CIOs unify their C-suites around digital strategies that assure greater success? How can they make the business safe, secure and resilient?” “The CIO 100 Symposium is the place to find those answers,” she asserted.

The CIO 100 Symposium shall take time to recognize and celebrate the top 100 innovative companies of the year who have been identified by an independent team of consultants and CIO editorial team. These honorees will recognized and celebrated during the CIO 100 Awards Gala – the East East Africa’s most powerful IT ceremony and highly attended evening event of honorees and executives inspired by digital transformation.
