PRESS RELEASE Africa Cyber Defense Forum Announces a Strategic Alliance with CSCIS as Registrations Opens for 2021Nairobi, Sunday, May 02

Africa Cyber Defense Forum announced today that it has entered into a Strategic Partnership with The Centre of Strategic Cyberspace and International Studies.

The annual Forum, the first-of-its-kind, an African Cyber Defense technology experience platform for public and private cooperation, will be hosted virtually on the 23rd – 24th June 2021 due to the CoviD-19 for the second time and features a 24hr Cyberlympics.

The partners’ objective and mission are to offer cyber-security and cyber-defense thought leadership to both the public and the private sector through engaging and thought-provoking dialogues, fact-based research, and policy recommendations.

“Our partnership with CSCIS allows our audience to share and exchange ideas and best practices as well as learn from our collective expertise in the Cyber Defense industry within the continent and beyond, as we address the global threat of cybercrime in the continent and beyond. As the threats get more complex and attack more sophisticated, there is a clear need for international collaboration and knowledge sharing between businesses, nations, and continents,” Gilbert Nyandeje, Founder and CEO, Africa Cyber Defense Forum.

“This forum and CSCIS participation comes at a crucial time. Relations with partners in Africa are more important,” said Richard Zaluski, CSCIS President. “By bringing together leading voices from the region to share their insights, this forum will help shape strategic thinking and global thought leadership that is critical within cyberspace security. We feel that our support and expertise delivers important insights for discussion and analysis not only for Africa as a region but for Africa on the global cyber stage.”
