    Session Title: Africa’s Year in Hacks

    Session Synopsis:

    A classic case of shutting the stable door long after the horse has bolted is reviewing your cyber resilience strategy and sensitizing your staff on their cybersecurity responsibilities after a security incident. PwC will dissect some of Africa’s biggest hacks of the past year. We will look at the analyses on breach postmortems, what the affected companies could have done better, and the lessons these breaches hold for future cybersecurity efforts.

    Despite efforts in improving the security posture, cyber breaches still occur, shaking the business world, causing jaw-dropping headlines and significant impacts.

    1. Cyber incident readiness and response.

    2. How African CISO’s held the fort and responded during an attack.

    3. Profound lessons drawn from recent cybersecurity breaches and incidents.
