Having recently investigated one of the biggest breaches in cybercrime history that took place in South Africa, Andrew will detail the chronological events of the hack itself, the investigation that Foregenix carried out and the treatment that followed when he speaks to senior business leaders later this month.

Taking place in two separate locations in Johannesburg and Cape Town, he will use case studies and first-hand experience to unveil recent trends in cybercrime and additionally the advancements in Point to Point Encryption (P2PE) before discussing Third Party Management strategies and the role of Data Discovery in a security and compliance strategy.

As a forerunner in PCI and the first and only Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) globally to certify seven Point-to-Point-Encryption (P2PE) Applications, Foregenix are looking forward to sharing their knowledge.

Speaking ahead of the event, Andrew Henwood, said: “Cybercriminals are becoming even more targeted and increasingly sophisticated in their method of attacks. We see this first hand and I’m looking forward to sharing our experiences in handling incidents and mitigating real-world risk with delegates at the event.”
