RISKSA Magazine - - News - All the best,

y DSTV De­coder ter­ri­fied me this month. Lever­ag­ing ev­ery inch of the CSI Mi­ami/New York/New Or­leans/Mi­ami fran­chise, HBO has launched CSI Cy­ber. The truly ter­ri­fy­ing thing about this new ad­di­tion to the fran­chise is that the story con­tent is much more than sim­ple pseu­do­science. This stuff is real, and it’s hap­pen­ing now. Heard about the geek that hacked into a pas­sen­ger jet’s avion­ics re­cently? He was able to fly the plane mo­men­tar­ily from his seat, all the way back there in cat­tle class. There are folk who think that the next world war is go­ing to be fought in the ether. I think they’re right. In the in­terim, guard, fire­wall and anti-virus the heck out of all your de­vices. We’ve a lit­tle sur­prise wait­ing for you be­tween the pages of your favourite fi­nan­cial ser­vices read next month. Ac­tu­ally, it’s a rather large sur­prise. To find out what we’ve been up to (and to have a lit­tle fun) please visit our web­site and so­cial me­dia plat­forms over the next few weeks (you’ll find links on our web­site) to see if you can dis­cover what it is. There will be weekly prizes up for grabs for those of our read­ers who are the ‘warm­est’ in their quest for clues, and there is a bumper prize to be won at the In­sur­ance Con­fer­ence at Sun City when we draw a win­ner from the hat. Speak­ing of net­work­ing, con­fer­ences and events, it has cer­tainly been a busy time for our in­dus­try over the last few weeks. The FIA awards have come and gone, and we were cer­tainly kept busy at the AIO con­fer­ence in Tu­nisia. It was won­der­ful meet­ing old (and mak­ing new) friends from our con­ti­nent and Europe and I think the over­whelm­ing take­away from each of these events is that it is not just our in­dus­try that is thriv­ing, but judg­ing by the amount of con­struc­tion and in­vest­ment we saw dur­ing our trav­els, and fol­low­ing the many pas­sion­ate con­ver­sa­tions we had with in­dus­try movers and shak­ers, there can be but one an­swer to the ques­tion; Is Africa ris­ing? Damn sure it is. Keep watch­ing our RISKSA TV episodes ev­ery Fri­day for up­dates and com­pe­ti­tion clues too. And if you have some­one in your of­fice cel­e­brat­ing a birth­day or spe­cial event, or if your com­pany is do­ing some­thing spe­cial, please drop An­gelique an e-mail on En­joy the read good peo­ple, and come visit us at our stand at the IISA con­fer­ence in Sun City, we can’t wait to see you there.
