What to Expect at CISO Africa 2020

Highlights from CISO Africa 2019

CISO Africa Johannesburg 2019

"The inaugural CISO Africa conference in 2019 was well represented by a number of leading CISO peers. The opportunity to gain knowledge from industry experts and peers, the round table discussions and networking opportunities makes this a worthwhile investment of time. As a CIO, I left with a greater understanding of the challenges of CISOs and increased knowledge on a number of topics."

- CIO, MTO Group

"The content for each agenda was very apt and appropriate for the audience. Well done for a great show, the sponsors, exhibitors and attendees provide valuable insight. The organising team did a fantastic job to ensure everything ran according to plan."

IT Security, Risk & Governance Director, Tiger Brands

"I like the fact that all CISO experience the same security challenges. I feel this should create a closer security community to tackle these challenges. I am new to heading up security at my company so this is quite vital to learn and adopt what other have done and improved."

- IS Operations Manager, Credit Guarantee Insurance

The agenda recognised the value of Information Security and the CISO role within organisations and the facilitated discussions provided a platform for peers to share industry experiences and lessons learnt. I found the vendor sessions and exhibitions provided detailed information about their offerings.

- Chief Advisor - Information Security, Eskom

 

The networking aspect of the conference in catching up with ex-colleagues and friends which I have not seen in a while and seeing what others in similar roles are doing, what the latest issues being experienced are and in some cases learning how others are attempting to overcome issues being faced.

- Group Enterprise Architect, Sanlam

 

 This event provided an opportunity to network with local information security professionals and assess safeguards being leveraged by peers in an ever increasing threat landscape

- Head: IT Risk, Strategy & Planning, Astron Energy

 

The conference was great and what I liked is that it was not a sales pitch for vendors.

- Manager: Information Security, African Bank

 

I went to CISO 2019 looking to get more info about how POPIA and GDPR will impact our organization. I left with a whole lot more. New business contacts and a wealth of practical knowledge that point me in the right direction to implement an effective GRC strategy in my organization.

 - Business Programme Manager, MTO Group

 

I really enjoyed opportunity to network and meet with the fellow practitioners in the Information and Cyber security industry.

- Head: Cyber Security Audit, Standard Bank

 

 Key take-aways: How CISOs need to understand business strategy and IT strategy in order to derive to an effective risk strategy. It was also interesting to see how different CISOs implement security awareness in different organisation and how each CISO is placed within business organograms.

- WAN Specialist, Limpopo Connexion

 

Great venue, great speakers and perfect mix of topics.

- Manager: Cyber Resilience, Continuity SA

 

The focus on GRC was good. A risk based approach is required to minimise the threats and vulnerabilities.
