Regional and global experts will take the stage to discuss a range of topics including Cybercrime, Security Strategy, Infrastructure and Operations, Blockchain, AI, Cloud, IoT & Ransomware.
 
Keeping in line with the tradition of concluding on a high note, this year the Conference will close with the former Director General of the United Kingdom’s MI5, Dame Stella Rimington, who is well renowned for her successful career, which spans across countersubversion, counterespionage and counterterrorism.
