John Obaro, our Managing Director, is set to speak about data security, combating cyber-crime and ensuring a safer community through technology, at the forthcoming Art of Technology (AOT) 2.0 Conference, which would simultaneously hold online and physically at Oriental hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos on December 3 and 4, 2020.
With registration ongoing at www.aotlagos.com, the event — which is in its second year and themed “Smart Data, Smarter Lagos” — would bring together tech giants, policymakers, regulators, startups, venture capitalists, product developers, tech enthusiasts and students.
Obaro said the event is crucial at this time to reinforce the need for improved cyber security, prevent further financial and data losses, nip in the bud the negative impact of data breaches, and secure confidential data of individuals and government.
“We all must see data as the new big deal, as it can be harnessed to drive the economy. We however must combat cybercrimes to ensure security in our society is safeguarded in an efficient and technology-driven manner,” he added.
Obaro would speak alongside Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, Deputy Governor, Lagos State; Inuwa Kashifu Abdullahi, Director General, NITDA; Ade Bajomo, Executive Director, IT & Operations, Access Bank; Tope Aladenusi, Head, Cyber Risk Services, Deloitte, West Africa.
The conference, an initiative of Eko Innovation Centre in partnership with the Lagos state government, would centre its discussions on how to mitigate cybercrimes, the need for data security, and evolution of a smarter Lagos.
