Cybersecurity Workshop





Increasing reliance on ICT in all aspects of daily life has created an environment prone to criminal activities such as computer intrusions, denial of service, threats to critical information infrastructure networks, e.t.c. The scope of the challenge and its evolving nature requires a comprehensive network security strategy that involves constant monitoring, targeted engagement and international cooperation to be properly addressed. To realize this vision, UbuntuNet Alliance invites participants to a Cybersecurity Workshop that will share experiences from IT Security experts in the industry.
