Event Overview

In a digital world where data is easily accessible, security concerns for businesses and individuals remain paramount. Organizations’ growing focus on digital transformation and digitization bring with it an element of risk and exposure to cyber attacks.

Post COVID, the dependence on technology has increased manifold. With new and innovative technologies coming to the forefront, hackers and cybercriminals are using advanced measures to gain access to information.
