QUARTERCON Q3 2021
The unanticipated state of chaos and the resulting new normal, has re-defined and demanded changes from leadership across board. Drawn greater attention to, challenged leaders, and more than ever emphasized the applied principles of leadership in cybersecurity. This conference will focus on two critical themes - cyber leadership and cyber workforce.
How can security leaders effectively apply leadership principles to be successful in their role and to drive working cybersecurity programs. Embed adaptable, leaders-driven governance; communicate and influence powerfully both to stakeholders and in crises situations.
The QuarterCon Q2 2021 conference will explore strategic leadership needed to enable a strong and healthy cyber workforce, considering the trends of the times; challenges and opportunities that exist across board. Offering insights and actionable recommendations for leaders to refocus greater on principles and people for cyber resilience.
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.
For senior and executive security, risk and privacy pros in Africa.
