IT leaders convened at the Sarova Panafric Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya for another edition of the IT News Africa Innovation Dinner Series, which was held on 28th May 2015 – and addressed the theme “Leveraging Security Convergence to Enable the Enterprise.”
In today’s security environment, enterprise security leaders need to do more than control who comes and goes, they need to know who is attempting to, or accessing areas without the necessary authorisation.
In leading organisations, the union between Information Security, Physical Security and Information Technology (IT) is established through integration driving convergence that is followed up by holistic strategies and Risk management, at senior levels. Tactical collaboration in appropriate projects, initiatives and ongoing operations are but a few approaches.
However, most organisations still struggle with technical and organisational convergence challenges, mainly because of limited knowledge and planning, therefore resort to working re-actively, addressing problems as they arise, but without thinking of advancing their organisation into a stronger position, and without understanding the full convergence landscape.
Sponsored by MiSEC, this edition of the Innovation Dinner Series brought together thought leaders for lively presentations and interactive discussions that assisted with with “Leveraging Security Convergence to Enable the Enterprise.”
