Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have had to postpone Cyber Cerebral Go Live to June 2020.
WE ARE HERE TO DISRUPT THE CYBER SECURITY SPACE AND
DEMAND NATIONAL AND GLOBAL ATTENTION
South Africa, with more than 10,000 attempts per day and with an annual loss of R2.2 billion as result of cyber attacks, has the third highest number of cybercrimes in the world. Theft, Phishing and Ransomware attacks are typical threats, and as the new currency for cryptocurrency, cybercrime is growing rapidly now and is the underlying topic. The summit brings together world renowned thinkers in cyber security an creates a nationwide awareness of technology use and cyber knowledge. It’s said that CCSAS is a “world class” event and one of its kind by its attendants and the media. This resulted in a successful volume 1 and 2 and has now been backed by popular demand with volume 3 opening in 2020.
Our vision is to ensure vast opportunities for our youth. We must proactively and thoughtfully reinvent the future of cyber security in Africa, by its future leaders. It is our responsibility to educate the South African Cyber Communities with the most updated and advanced information ensuring that we have a plan of action to combat cyber-criminals.
Our mission is to build a cyber secure nation which will be conceptualized into a plan of action by state buy-in. With the number of threats and data breaches increasing with clear evidence that home-grown cyber criminals are becoming more skilled and efficient in their “practice”. Cyber Security awareness is a fundamental aspect within our communities. The aim is to re-introduce the cyber security awareness programme to enhance the online safety and security for our communities.
