The event brought together leaders in the ICT industry to celebrate the successes and achievements of the ICT sector over the past year.

According to him, cyber-security should be at the top of all IT spending priorities because of the ubiquitous use of technology in every area of life, therefore creating a need for business flexibility with the confidence IT security provides. Cybersecurity is complex and continuously evolving. The number of cyber security incidents are growing exponentially and more are inevitable. Organisations must be equipped to maximise IT security while minimising challenges and closing gaps because the hackers are relentless. To gain competitive advantage, organisations must prioritise IT security and be prepared for potential breaches, Mafiana added.
