Developing Business Resilience in Africa: Insights from NIS2 and DORA directives.

In this session, we will delve into a critical theme of developing business resilience in the African context by examining the implications of two key directives by the European Union, NIS2 and DORA. We will examine what organizations and cyber security experts in Africa can borrow from these two directives to improve response to the growing threats posed with digitalization and the surge in cyber-attacks to strengthen their security requirements and address the security of supply chains. These directives are believed will play a significant role in shaping the strategies and practices of businesses operating in African countries.
