The Africa Cyber Defense Forum is a continental platform for public-private cooperation.
The forum through its well curated and world class content, engages Top level Government officials, Technology experts, business leaders and other leaders of society to shape the continental, regional and industry agendas in the African cyber space.
Our activities are anchored in our passionate pursuit of better and safer technology and we are seeking to shape the future of information security through progressive and inspiring conversations in technology and offering thought leadership to both governments, society and private sector.
We believe that technology has the potential to bring transformative change in the continent, but we must ensure that it is equally secure. This is why by bringing together experts from all walks of life in a business conscious platform we can make a positive change in our society.
We bring together open-minded, creative, forward-thinking ICT experts, entrepreneurs, and individuals at the frontline of information security, cyber defense technology, technology review, and Business executives through high-level panels and speakers to create deal flows, partnerships and inspire.
