VaultBridge goes to NIIA for blockchain conference 2018 - ITREALMS

The VaultBridge Global Limited has concluded plans to host its maiden West African Cyber Security and Blockchain Technology conference (WACSBTC2018) to the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA) in Victoria Island-Lagos, reports ITREALMS.

Executive Director, VaultBridge Global, Harrison Ozinegbe told ITREALMS in Lagos at a press conference that they are software security company with focus on cyber security, FinTech and blockchain technology.

On the conference, he said, VaultBridge is partnering some two foreign entities, namely the KIPYA Connect and Bit2Big

“We are geared towards organizing workshops, conferences, seminars and trainings in Cyber Security, FinTech and Blockchain Technology,” he declared.

This, he said, has become pertinent as no one imagined the exponential growth of the Internet at such a short span of its introduction on commerce, industry and government and even the ordinary citizen in a remote village.

“Applications we never thought possible are daily added and uploaded on the internet, easing and facilitating the way we live and do business. Yet at the advent of internet in the 90s in Nigeria, we were all very cautious, even up to the year 2000 with the acronym of Y2K when we heard of millennium bug supposedly to crash computer and every associated data.

“We are yet again at the emergence of another great technology, the Blockchain that has come to disrupt and further revolutionize commerce, industry, government and even our everyday life,” he said.

One of the reasons for the forthcoming conference, he said, is to acquaint Nigerians alongside members of the press with some of the objectives of VaultBridge Global, to help sensitize, educate and train members of the general public by way of seminars, workshops, conferences and exhibitions to further galvanize people into exploring and exploiting the inherent benefits of this new Technology.

In this regard, we shall be conducting regular training classes for the Certified Blockchain Professionals (CBP) to bring practitioners up to speed with the Institute of iBusiness (IIB Council) requirements.

“We hope to play very active advocacy role to engage with relevant stakeholders and authorities to develop core solution architecture in the real sectors as Power, Health, Energy, Agriculture, Transportation, etc., and to carry out in-depth research and analysis in order to create a better understanding of the Blockchain Technology to enhance and benefit all sectors of the economy.

There are high incidences of illegal hackers, internet scammers and cybercrimes across the world and Nigeria is no exception. These crimes are often associated with cyberspace technolgy which Blockchain Technology also falls. This necessitates our resolve in VaultBridge to partner with KIPYA Connect and Bit2Big to constantly organize Cyber Security Executive Master Classes in Ethical Hackers and other related EC-Council certified examinations to keep operators abreast of latest technology in combating cybercrimes.

Our maiden conference is scheduled for Saturday 10th Novmber, 2018 and to hold at the Nigerian Institute of International Affrairs (NIIA), 13/15 Kofo Abayomi Road, Victoria Island, Lagos. Experts in Cyber Security and Blockchain Technology will be hand to present papers. We therefore use this opportunity to further invite you and the general public to this conference. We are not charging any entrance fees, in fact, attendees should expect some give-aways from some of our sponsors apart from the rich expose of this workshop.
