Rosemary KimwatuTony MuteroWinnie SergonSidney Shilako

While addressing the now and planning the next, does cloud emerge as one of the lasting shifts that SACCOs should adopt?
From a transformation and innovation perspective, how should SACCOs explore the role of cloud as a socio-economic
development enabler? What concerns and barriers do SACCOs have in migrating to the cloud? How has cloud impacted socio-
economic development? Going forward, how should SACCOs balance technology adoption, particularly migration to the cloud
in this era of automation and social distancing?

PANEL DISCUSSION: Building a Security Culture in SACCOs
Tania NgimaRobert MugoiKamal Budhabhatti

How secure are the SACCO digital platforms? With our modern dependence on technology and security, from what stage should
organizations develop a security culture? How effective are SACCOs dealing with the digital threat landscape as more SACCOs gear towards
digital transformation. While security awareness appears widespread and possibly mainstreamed, why has security culture not kept up
with the pace of threat landscape?   To what extent are data privacy concerns an issue to SACCOs?
