South Africa’s eighth annual ITWeb Security Summit will be staged amid growing evidence that traditional IT security has failed.
A ‘mighty battle’ has broken out for the soul of the internet, and the cyber security risks facing enterprises are greater than ever. Cyber security in its old form has failed, and information security professionals are engaged in an ongoing strategic war for control.
Amid increasingly audacious cyber attacks and dire warnings, the world’s top cyber security experts are set to travel to SA in May this year, to address 500 of the country’s key business leaders and information security professionals on the battle raging on the cyber front. Key to winning the war, they say, is informed strategy, effective tactics and the new imperative to know your enemy.
In an ever-changing environment, staying abreast of evolving threats and attack techniques requires constant vigilance. It’s a game of chess or cat and mouse; and understanding the enemy and anticipating his next move is the new infosec top priority.
At the annual ITWeb Security Summit, to be held at the Sandton Convention Centre from 7 – 9 May 2013, the definitive gathering of security professionals, international and local information security analysts and experts will drill down into high profile security failures, forecast the future of cyber security and outline the tactics needed to win the war.
In a much-anticipated keynote address, international investigative journalist and author Misha Glenny will uncover his findings on the cybercrime underworld. Based on extensive interviews with cyber criminals, cyber policemen and government strategists, Glenny’s presentation will reveal the new cybercrime landscape.
