Globally, the financial industry is experiencing continuous disruption, the emergence of fintech and digital banking is forcing banks to innovate and respond to customer needs in a more fluid manner and with a sense of urgency.
Traditional financial service providers/banks saddled with legacy systems and investments are now turning to cloud innovation in order to remain competitive with fintech new-comers
However, with the adoption of cloud innovation comes the challenge of cloud security and compliance. A report published by Checkpoint in 2020 indicated that, security continues to be a major pain point for cloud customers with 75% of cybersecurity professionals sharing similar concerns.
Even though cloud innovation provides benefits such as business innovation, scalable infrastructure and compliance and certification, security remains a matter of critical concern for financial institutions.
Israel has been a dominant global force in the development of IT security technologies, particularly within this sector, for more than 25 years. Due to a variety of factors, including an incomparable concentration of professionals and vast government support, Israel is acknowledged as a pioneer in both the global development of disruptive Cybersecurity solutions, as well as the design of revolutionary cyber policy.
Some of the worlds’ leading cloud security companies including Checkpoint are from Israel and this is made possible because of the country’s expertise in encryption and information security.
Based on this, the Israeli Trade and Economic Mission to West Africa in collaboration with The Embassy of Israel in Nigeria invite Ghanaian and Nigerian cyber practitioners, Financial Institutions CISO’s, cyber security consulting companies and cyber security Training Institutes to this webinar where we will introduce new technologies in cloud infrastructure and security in the form of presentations, short training demos, Q&A, and B2B’s.
