Machintel's Global Media Network, Media 7 Partners with CyFrica to Elevate Cyber Resilience
Media 7 partners with Tradepass for CyFrica 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya, uniting 600 experts to tackle rising cybersecurity threats.
Cybersecurity has become an increasingly critical concern in Kenya, especially with the recent rollout of 5G technology. Recognizing the urgent need to address escalating hacking attacks, the National Kenya Computer Incident Response Team Coordination Center reported a significant increase of 268.88% in cyber threat events during July to September 2021. The Government of Kenya also launched the National Cybersecurity Strategy in 2022, aiming to establish a more supportive regulatory framework for cybersecurity. Tradepass, a renowned event organizer specializing in cybersecurity conferences, will facilitate the CyFrica event in Nairobi to foster collaboration in cybersecurity initiatives between the public and private sectors.
CyFrica 2023 is set to attract over 600 leading cybersecurity experts, including government officials and industry leaders such as Andy Chadwick, Head of Africa Cyber Network, UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office; Timothy Were, Deputy Director ICT, Ministry of Information, Communications and the Digital Economy; Dr. Vincent Ngundi, Director - Cybersecurity, Communications Authority of Kenya; Daniel Adaramola, CISO of SunTrust Bank Nigeria; Amenyo Lotsu, Information Security Lead at M-KOPA; and Tim Theuri, Executive Head of Cybersecurity at M-PESA Africa among others.
"It's an honor for Machintel to contribute towards the awareness and implementation of cybersecurity systems in Kenya and Africa. We work with some of the world's largest companies in information security as well as some of the fastest growing new companies in this area globally, and are delighted to bring our work to Africa as well. With the growing need for data protection and privacy, CyFrica 2023 aligns perfectly with our commitment to raising awareness about cybersecurity and its impact on society," said Mark Choudhari, CEO of Machintel.
As the official media partner, Media 7 will provide extensive coverage of the event, highlighting key industry trends and thought-leadership discussions from the distinguished speakers and participants.
