Securex West Africa and The West African Cyber Security Summit

Running alongside Securex West Africa, from the 21st till the 23rd March 2017 at the Landmark Centre, Lagos, Nigeria, is The West African Cyber Security Summit which is targeted at C-Level executives from across a full range of industries. From banking, government, telecommunications, logistics to retail and hospitality, all use the internet of things for communicating, placing orders and banking which in turn open them up to potential cyber threats.
