PAN AFRICA CYBER LAW SUMMIT
Cyber threats are growing both in their prevalence and in their disruptive potential; it is unfortunate that cybersecurity remains an afterthought for many organizations. Often leaving many environments vulnerable to cyber-attacks. In her capacity as the MD of Orizur Consulting, Advocate Lufuno saw an opportunity to develop unique solutions that innovatively bring together security and contract management to help clients reduce cyber security threats and increase cost effectiveness through the seven-phase contract management framework and the quad governance lifecycle system. A key topic that she will be covering in detail at the inaugural PAN AFRICAN CYBER LAW SUMMIT – 2019.
