40+ top delegates at the African Cybersecurity and Fraud Prevention Forum (ACFPF) 2020

MJDvent International is organizing African Cybersecurity and Fraud Prevention Forum 2020 between 6th and 7th of May, 2020 in Lagos, Nigeria because of our commitment to creating public-private partnerships with socially impactful endeavours, which is, of course, core to our company mission.

Over 40 leaders and stakeholders in the cybersecurity in Africa will assemble in Lagos, Nigeria between the 6th and 7th May 2020, to discuss on how to implement and develop the cyber resilience strategies and cybersecurity skills for a sustainable Africa at the African Cybersecurity and Fraud Prevention Forum (ACFPF) 2020.

Cybersecurity and fraud prevention functions need to start working more closely together to share and leverage cross-functional knowledge that can help improve security. Africa currently hosts some of the fastest-growing economies in the world and the entire continent is set for a huge economic transformation.

Cyberattacks on businesses around the world are on the rise, and Africa is not spared. These attacks cost businesses productivity, revenue, and client trust—not to mention the personal security of its patrons.

Fraud prevention is becoming an issue that the regulators and top banking executives who are in the saddle when fraudulent activities take place or more succinctly when someone commits an act of fraud in the financial institutions under their management. The digital economy is developing at lightning speed, and with it, a new challenge has appeared, along with the economic and strategic stakes that go with it: this new danger is cybercrime.

African Cybersecurity and Fraud Prevention Forum 2020 will focus on overcoming the Cyber threats facing Governments, Banking Industries, Financial Institutions, Health Sectors, Manufacturing Industries, School Districts, and Higher Education etc.  By bringing together representatives from all facets of Public Sector, this forum will create an opportunity for idea sharing, collaborative strategy development and the continued creation of a Community of Interest that will ultimately benefit the People of Africa.

ACFPF 2020 will address the growing pressure and concern in the industry as cyber-attacks become more common and the amount of data stored online increases, not only in volume but also in sensitivity. Most industries are naturally growing concerned at the exponential growth of cybercrime. This dedicated track aims to identify the challenges involved with keeping businesses and data secure from threats.

The forum will be chaired by Samuel Mbonu, Manager, CyberSecurity and Governance- Security Operations Center, FirstBank Nigeria. Samuel has vast years of in-depth experience in Cybersecurity, Digital Transformation and Disruption, Mainstream IT, IT Auditing, Governance, & Risk management across all sectors.
