InfoSec Conference Summary

The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.


A report by Serianu Limited shows that in 2016, five African countries lost a combined US$895 million to cyber crime, an issue that the Ghana President has mandated to combat at a multi-agency level.

West African countries face evolving challenges, such as cyber threats that greatly threaten their national stability. Cyber security as well as the effects of transnational crime and illicit smuggling are key issues these nations are investing millions into eradicating.

The 3rd Annual West Africa National Security Conference (26-27 June 2018, Accra, Ghana) will gather the regional directors of national intelligence, inspector generals and commissioners of police, heads of security services, immigration and border control to improve the resilience of homeland security in West Africa.
The conference will address specific issues such as:

– Defending against illicit smuggling across West Africa by improving real-time monitoring and surveillance
– Reducing crime rates by early preventive detection of incidents and intelligence gathering
– Enhance the resilience of border and coastal security police units by improving crisis communication capabilities
– Establishing cyber command centres that involve government stakeholders and the private sector to deter cyber crime across critical infrastructure
