“We are pleased to announce our partnership with IBM for the forthcoming first Africa I.T InfoSec Leaders Conference. With IBM’s partnership, conference attendees or delegates will learn about the IBM Commercial Cyber Aptitude Test (CCAT) product.

Dele Aden, Managing Partner at Delta3 International, earlier in an interview said, the objective of the conference is to get leaders of businesses and various divisional leaders in businesses to have conversations on cybersecurity and how everyone can be prepared when something happens.

“What we are doing is getting the leaders of businesses together, IT leaders, information security leaders, risk, audit, business manager, and HR leaders together at the very first Africa InfoSec and IT leaders conference in March 28.

We are having thought leaders to deliver addresses from Europe and other Western nations, Asia and Africa who have experienced major attacks for only US$250 per delegate, which include coffee and buffet lunch breaks,” he said.

The conference will have breakout sessions on different issues and these groups will be focusing on how to move organisations forward so that more and more organisations will take cybersecurity seriously, take customer data seriously and understand the challenges coming down when it comes cybersecurity.

Komla Mike Etchi, Senior ICT Trainer, in an interview, noted that since Delta3’s arrival in Ghana, the focus and emphasis have been on awareness creation about cybersecurity and so far, the message is getting home but more still needs to be done.

“The problem we have as a country is preparedness and compliance and we are still very far away. That is why we are getting all the industry heads in one room so we can discuss how we can best to protect ourselves.

We have been too countless organisations and they feel that they cannot be attacked but what we fail to realise is that the cyber world has no boundaries. Some guy in a basement somewhere in central Europe could be preying on vulnerabilities and attack. We have a task on our hands as to preparedness and compliance,” he said.
