SAIMC: Secunda branch

March 2019 SAIMC

The branch AGM took place on 17 January. In order to keep the momentum of the last two years, the committee remained unchanged, with the exception of the loss of two reliable members, Xandri Cornelisen and Annemarie van Coller. To both these ladies, thank you for your unselfish service and commitment to the branch and the SAIMC.

In today’s connected world, everyone benefits from advanced cybersecurity programs. At an individual level, a cyber-attack can vary from identity theft, blackmail attempts to the loss of vital information. Everyone relies on critical infrastructure like power plants, hospitals and financial service companies. Securing these and other organisations is essential to keeping our society functioning and needs to comply with legislation and the relevant codes of practise. The branch thanks Cobus for this informative presentation.

Technology evening dates for 2019: 7 March, 4 April, 9 May, 6 June, 11 July, 1 August, 5 September, 3 October and 7 November.
