It is indeed against this background that the virtual Cloud & Security Forum 2020 is designed to assist in driving an impartial and informed dialogue in the rapidly evolving information security industry.

Having continued to create an environment for making new connections, the summit with visionary speakers at the nexus of new technologies and cyber security solutions purposes to share their insights and demonstrate their ability to safeguard customer data.

Harry HareAmb. Dr. Monica JumaOtilia PhiriMercy Wanjau

Since the Kenya’s Data Protection Law enactment in November 2019, what has been the immediate next step?

Securing Your Cloud Space

George Gakungu

As CIOs role largely hinges on driving revenue and scaling digital business for their organizations, their focus seems to have put a spotlight on chief information security officers (CISOs) hence begging the question: Shouldn’t the CISOs role be evolving just as seemingly dynamic role of CIOs? Who should the CISOs report to?  To what extent should organizations shift the view of security and risk from a technical problem to a strategic business priority?
