The number one topic for CEOs this year is cyber security as well as keeping company and client ecosystems safe. Security issues are even more pronounced with the slump in oil prices causing economic downturns in resource rich countries and in turn spurring an accelerated uptick in cyber criminal activity and corporate espionage.

CyberXchange Conference 2016 is a direct response to this clear and present challenge in West Africa;a global convergence of Information Security professionals which is set to hold on 2nd and 3rd of November at the Landmark Event Centre, Lekki Peninsula, Lagos Nigeria.

During the two-dayconference, carefully selected topics will be discussed by leading Chief executives, renownedprofessionals, government officialsand holistic cross-section stakeholders to examine current cyber security trends and produce tangible recommendations for solutions.
