Over the past few years, cyber incidents, such as the recent ransomware attacks on the City of Johannesburg, Transnet, and the Department of Justice in South Africa, have demonstrated that public sector organisations and State Owned Enterprises remain key targets for hackers and cybercriminals.
Interpol’s African Cyberthreat Assessment Report for 2021 found that Cyber-attacks cost South Africa R2.2 billion per annum, and an Accenture report on digital safety found that South Africa experiences roughly 577 malware attacks per hour.
In light of the recent spate of cyber-attacks in the public sector, the time has come for public sector organisations and SOEs to reassess their cybersecurity strategies and invest in upgrading infrastructure, skills, and technology to mitigate and protect against future attacks.
Join us at the Public Sector Security Summit 2022 (#PubliSec2022) to learn from local and international case studies and hear from public sector security experts, enabling you to bolster cyber security within your organisation. Topics will outline emerging threats against the public sector, global cybersecurity and data protection best practices, and how to mitigate risks. You will also have the opportunity to network virtually with best-in-class solution providers and senior colleagues from across the SADC region, sharing challenges and strategies to improve your organisation’s approach toward cybersecurity resilience.
