2021 Sacco ICT Managers Conference

Records and Information Management East Africa in Partnership with Afri Board Rank, Vace Server Experts UK and Africa Cloud One invites you for the 2021 Sacco ICT Managers Conference.

The Four-day Conference runs from the 29th Mar to 1st Apr 2021 at the Grand Winston Hotel, Nakuru, Kenya.

The 2021 Conference focuses on Information Security and Storage

Background

Financial institutions have long been the leading targets for cybercrime. The industry provides the multiple avenues for hackers to monetize their skills through extortion, theft, and fraud.

The threat landscape for financial institutions is again being transformed. The explosion of digital financial services and mobile banking has exponentially expanded the attack surface that criminals can exploit.  At the same time, the proliferation of easy-to-use malware and contract hacker services on the black market has made what were once exclusively nation-state capabilities available to a wide range of malicious actors.
