Cybersecurity: Securing Africa’s Businesses

Date: 11 September 2019

Venue: Eversheds Sutherland, 1 Wood Street, London, EC2V 7WS

Client event : Africa is a region often overlooked when it comes to cybersecurity. Although cyber infrastructure is not as developed as in other regions, African companies must look to secure their business in order to protect from data leaks and cyber-attacks, such as the Wannacry ransomware in 2017.

How best then to protect from cyber-attacks?

Invest Africa and Eversheds Sutherland invite you to join the discussion with industry leaders, tech experts, and businesses on the cutting edge of cybersecurity in London and across Africa.

Invest Africa will be collecting your details once registered for event purposes only.
