Cyber Safe: Co-creating opportunities for cyber security in South Africa and Finland
Webinar at Business Finland Southern Africa office in Sandton - Johannesburg Pretoria on March 27th at 8.30-12.30. Welcome to discuss and co-create opportunities together!
Problem: The resilience and safety of digital infrastructures is important for well-functioning and competitive nations. Cyber threats are becoming both increasingly common and sophisticated.
