Africa Cyber Defense Summit 2018
Jul 9 – Jul 10 all-day
Africa Cyber Defense Summit 2018

The African market has been evolving at a gradual pace and has seen huge economic transformations in the recent years. Kenya has been one of the key drivers in the African economy to bring out drastic initiatives. Information and communications technology and the cyber space platforms have become he core pillars and key enablers of Kenya’s Vision 2030 considering its emphasis on transforming Kenya into an industrialized and secure country by laying its foundation on science, technology, and innovation. However, cyber security breaches and attacks are incumbent commonplace threats to organizations and individuals across the globe and are becoming impediments to Kenya’s transformation. It is of paramount importance to urgently and consistently drive national and regional cyber security dialog, and enhance our efforts to secure critical infrastructures and sensitive data. The success of cyber security heavily depends on multiple tangible and intangible factors such as the development of standards, policies and legal frameworks; assessments of risks, governance and compliance; law enforcement and legal interception; sharing and disseminating critical information and alerts; and most importantly create further education and regular awareness amongst the key stakeholders. In order to address the issues of cyber security, and to provide strategic thrusts to protect the critical infrastructure and sensitive information, Naseba, in partnership with the African Cyberspace Network, will organize the Pan-African Cyber Defense Summit (ACDS) in Nairobi, Kenya.

Cybercon Asia 2018

Poor cyber security has affected all levels of society, may it be in the national, local, or personal level. In the digital world, nation states, terrorist groups, tasteless organizations and rouge individuals can launch cyber-attacks from anywhere, anytime, disrupting and damaging our democracy and way of life.

To confront this problem, awareness must be raised. At “Cybercon Asia”, our mission is to produce a multi-stakeholder consortium that brings together various industries. Including, but not limited to the government, the academe, and the corporate sphere all with the objective to raise interest and awareness about the state of cyber security on both domestic and international level.

ROOTCON 12 Hacking Conference

ROOTCON 12 Hacking Conference

Time to gear up and get ROOTCON 12 a kick-off, starting off with our first task the ROOTCON 12 theme.

Event themes will give us the feel and vibe on the conference each year, last year we had Humans meets IoT where we had a vibe of knowing the troubles and insecurities on IoT devices.

This year we thought of giving highlights on the hacker community and the culture it’s living, our theme will be Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution which is based from the novel written by Steven Levey, on his novel he discussed about hacker culture and that he thought hackers were fascinating people, adventurers, visionaries, risk-takers and artists rather than what most ordinary nowadays pictured the word “hackers”. The look n feel of this years theme will be carrying a Retro and 8-bit feel.

Annual Privacy Forum @ LUISS Guido Carli
Jun 13 – Jun 14 all-day
Annual Privacy Forum @ LUISS Guido Carli

Electronic communication networks and interconnected digital services have become ubiquitous as they have permeated every fold of everyday life. At a time when automated profiling and electronic surveillance have become commodities, citizens and businesses alike may face limitations and threats when they have personal data processed or seek to protect their privacy on the internet or when using general communication services. Limitations in the transparency, the functionality and interconnectivity of online and communication services increases the risk of having personal data processed out of control of any accountable person or organization or simply becoming exposed to all sorts of privacy threats.

The recalibrated legal framework in the EU as manifested by the promulgation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is key in an effort to better control the processing of personal data. Additionally, the forthcoming Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications is expected to give new impetus to the way privacy is protected in electronic communications. Even the best legislative efforts cannot keep up to speed with the pace of innovative technology and business models that challenge the way personal data is processed and privacy is protected across the EU and beyond; therefore, examining what is at stake and where threats thereto originate from becomes of paramount importance.

In the light of the above, ENISA, DG CONNECT, the University of Rome Tor Vergata and LUISS University are organizing the Annual Privacy Forum (APF) 2019.
