QUARTERCON Q4 2021
“The recent JBS meat-packing and Colonial pipeline ransomware attacks and shutdowns are grabbing all the headlines. However, they're just the latest in a long and probably endless parade of cybersecurity crises”
The unanticipated state of crises and the resulting new normal, has re-defined and demanded changes from leadership across board. Drawing greater attention to, challenged leaders, and more than ever emphasized the idea that real leaders are forged in crisis.
The QuarterCon Q4 2021 conference will explore how security leaders can effectively lead in and through the persistent cyber crises; plan and prepare strategically; and importantly manage communications and people dynamics while under crises. Offering insights and actionable tactics for leaders to be crisis-prepared.
Africa’s cybersecurity community elites will talk priorities, trends, ideas and most-pressing matters for security leaders, now and over the horizon; delivering in-depth, comprehensive and actionable insights that teach, provoke thought and inspire actions for affirmative cybersecurity changes.
