Event Details

CIO Africa is pleased to announce the 7th annual Cloud & Security Summit. The Summit will bring the African Cloud & Security community together to deliberate on topics that are critical for cloud computing, digital transformation, and cybersecurity as a critical tool to securing enterprise digital assets. According to predictions from Gartner, global spending on cloud services is expected to reach over $482 billion in 2022, up from $313 billion in 2020. Cloud computing infrastructure is the backbone of the delivery pipeline of just about every digital service, from social media and streaming entertainment to connected cars and autonomous internet of things (IoT) infrastructure.

Bringing together a wide cross section of thought leaders and decision makers from business, government and policy, Cloud & Security Summit will invite the audience to question where this technology is going, what the threats are, how we must respond and the opportunities we have to create services that will meet future demands.

The Summit will explore and discuss several emerging trends in cloud computing and cybersecurity including edge computing, serverless cloud, artificial intelligence in the cloud and how to secure the multi-cloud, modernization of web application security, organization-wide cloud security posture management and AI for cloud security intelligence.
