In its quest to empower leaders in business, the Businesswomen’s Association (BWA) conducted a workshop to discuss the “Fundamentals of Cyber Security” on Wednesday.

“Research indicates that one in three businesses have been hit by Cybercrime. Also, the crime has proven that people are the weakest link. Businesses need to strategise in order to ensure that they are cyber secure, in our digital world,” said BWA chairperson Lerato Mgidlana.

She said as a leading platform for women business leaders they aim to sensitise the business community to the impact of cyber-attacks on businesses and strategies that should be adopted to mitigate against them.

The workshop was addressed by the Chief Information Officer (CIO) of Parliament, Ms Unathi Mtya.

Mtya is currently studying towards an Executive MA of Science in Technology Management at Columbia University.

She has had a career that spans both the private and public sectors, and has plied her trade at FNB, Business Connexion and SITA. She has absorbed a wide range of ICT technical disciples, enabling her management of multi-disciplinary teams across the entire ICT spectrum.
