The #DigiSecCon aims to bring together different sector perspectives (e.g., education and social development, human rights, policymakers, health, ICT, finance, justice, law & order, etc.) to highlight the contemporary digital/cyber challenges, emerging trends, drivers and consequences of inequality in the age of digitalization. We strive to identify and highlight viable digital solutions to contemporary problems in this context.

It has been agreed that the #DigiSeCon 2022 takes the shape of an exhibition.

The expo seeks to bring together technologists, innovators, start-ups, the private sector, telecoms, banks, the Ministry of ICT, and NITA-U, all working on digital innovations that address some of the challenges that the civil society and citizenry face in this technology era.

One of DPI’s core values is Agility; We quickly and effectively adopt and adapt practices in response to humanity’s ever-evolving and emerging safety, security, and protection needs in their working environment.

The pivot from a conference to an exposition results from a DPI survey to identify digital security challenges citizens face in the country. It was revealed that most citizens are unaware of many tools used to circumvent cyber-insecurities that they face and the existence of limited visibility and awareness of some technologies/innovations that exist locally and are capable of addressing their challenges.
