MANILA, May 20, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – With 74 million active internet users, the Philippines has been constantly battling a rich state of cybercrime.

To ensure the summit has the right guidance and attracts the right set of faculties, CyFrica 2022 now has Deputy Directors from the Ministry of ICT – Kenya and ICT Authority – Kenya, Timothy Were and Philip Irode respectively as part of its Advisory Board.

The summit aims to attract 1500+ pre-qualified cybersecurity experts (in-person & virtual) including the Heads of Information Security, Risk, Compliance, Forensics and Cyber Law from the leading public and private enterprises across Africa.

In an interview preceding the summit, Timothy Were (Deputy Director, Ministry of ICT – Kenya) stated his thoughts when asked about the reason behind majority of the African companies still not taking a major step to improve their cyber-defense, he expressed, "Ignorance, fear of exposure that could decrease customer and regulator confidence in the firms and not being alive to the fact that the ground is changing could be some of the reasons why firms are not improving their defense."

He also added, "I would like to welcome each and every one of you to the CyFrica 4th edition, Karibu Kenya."

Top renowned organizations like KnowBe4, Uniken, Gigamon, Plena Solutions Ltd., Wallix, Kaspersky, Acronis, IronTree and ManageEngine will be the face of the event as they will have their own exclusive exhibition booths to showcase their cutting-edge security solutions.

Fiona Konchellah (VP of Sales – Africa, Uniken) expressed her excitement for the summit, she said, "I'm thrilled to be a part of CyFrica 2022, alongside some of the top cybersecurity experts. I'm looking forward to discussions on Africa's rapidly growing cybersecurity market, as well as sharing and learning best practices to ensure a safer Africa."

She further added, "Now more than ever, it is crucial that we work together to identify and tackle cybersecurity threats in order to bring Africa's digitization initiatives and aspirations to fruition."

While talking about the state of Africa's cybersecurity, Anna Collard (SVP Content Strategy & Evangelist, KnowBe4) mentioned, "According to KnowBe4's African Cybersecurity Awareness survey released in early 2022, 54% of respondents did not know what a ransomware attack is and 34% have lost money because they fell victim to a scam. To ensure Africa's people benefit from the increasing digitisation public and private sectors need to do more to raise consumer awareness around cybersecurity and threats and build a security culture within their own organisations."

The summit will power two knowledge-packed days filled with insightful presentations on the most pressing industry topics, deep dive panel discussions with the leading thought leaders, live showcase of the best cybersecurity solutions and abundant networking opportunities.

The confirmed speakers for the summit include Timothy Were – Deputy Director, Ministry of ICT Kenya; Philip Irode – Deputy Director, ICT Authority, Kenya; Abdul-Hakeem Ajijola – Chair, African Union Cyber Security Expert Group (AUCSEG) Nigeria; Neil Walsh – Ambassador & Regional Representative to Eastern Africa, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Kenya; Cyrus Kamau – CIO, National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation (NACOSTI) Kenya; Bonface Asiligwa – CISO, KENTRADE Kenya; CRAIG JONES, Director of Cybercrime, INTERPOL; Laura Temesi – Head Cyber Partnerships and Communication, Standard Chartered Kenya; Ishaaq Jacobs – CISO, Sasol South Africa; Kabuthia Riunge – CISO, KCB Group PLC Kenya; Thelma Kganakga – CISO, Equity Bank Kenya; Amenyo Lotsu – CISO, ARB Apex Bank Ghana; Zechariah Akinpelu – CISO, Unity Bank Nigeria; Tim Theuri – Executive Head of Cybersecurity, M-Pesa Africa, Kenya; Cynthia K – Information Security Lead, GE Kenya; Stephen Obare – CIO, National Social Security Fund (NSSF) Kenya; George Ochola – Head Information Technology Security, National Bank of Kenya; Bernard Ambaka – CSO, Kenya Power; and Simion Rutto – Group Head of Forensics and Security Services, Britam Kenya.

Vijay Babber (Senior Channel Manager MEA, Gigamon) expressed his excitement for the summit, and whilst talking about the state of Africa's cybersecurity in a hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure he said, "Gigamon is excited to be participating in person in this year's Cyfrica event. We are seeing more and more companies' cloud migration strategies accelerating, with hybrid cloud becoming the de-facto standard. The need to protect and secure hybrid cloud networks from cyber-attacks has become mission critical. When deploying applications into the public cloud, the security model becomes more nuanced, bringing on-board many challenges. With Gigamons Deep Observability Pipeline we overcome many if not all these challenges by providing access to all the data that we broker to the security tools, any source any destination. Our team will be happy to discuss the challenges and how Gigamon can help. We look forward to meeting you during the event."

Organizer and CEO of Tradepass, Sudhir Jena expressed, "We feel extremely privileged to have Timothy Were and Philip Irode, the Deputy Directors from Kenyan Ministry of ICT and ICT Authority, as the Advisory Board Members for CyFrica 2022.

BANGKOK, May 5, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Dusit International, one of Thailand's leading hotel and property development companies, will showcase its expanding portfolio of international properties, plus a wide range of new services and guest experiences, at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2022, held from 9 – 12 May at the Dubai World Trade Centre.


Dusit's reimagined flagship Dusit Thani Bangkok hotel is slated to open in mid-2024 as part of Dusit Central Park, a landmark mixed-use development in the heart of Bangkok.

Dusit Thani Hua Hin's large central pool has been stylishly transformed into a new 'sanctuary by the sea' following a complete renovation of all guest rooms and other exciting upgrades.

Elite Havens, the leading provider of luxury villa rentals in Asia, gives travellers a unique opportunity to stay in incredible private residences in stunning locations across Indonesia, India, Japan, the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

Designed to link millennial-minded travellers with authentic local experiences in the world's most vibrant neighbourhoods, ASAI Hotels offers thoughtfully pared-back services while focusing on in-stay essentials and exciting lifestyle experiences.

Mr Prateek Kumar, Senior Vice President – Operations, Dusit International


During the event, Dusit executives will share details about Dusit's group-wide response to the global pandemic, including how it has reimagined its unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality to deliver not only short-term financial improvement, but also longer-term value creation by providing additional convenience, experience and value for guests.

This includes the introduction of four new pillars of Dusit Graciousness, which respond directly to shifting consumer trends – Service (personalised and gracious), Well-Being (delivering wellness experiences beyond the spa), Locality (uniquely linking guests with the local community), and Sustainability (social, economic, and environmental) – and the subsequent roll-out of services, activities and experiences in each of these areas to enrich the stay experience and create meaningful and memorable moments at Dusit Hotels and Resorts worldwide.

Dusit's new group-wide wellness concept, Devarana Wellness, is just one exciting development to emerge from this strategic approach.

Specially designed to weave well-being elements throughout the entire stay experience, the new concept has been specially crafted to address guests' most shared concerns – including destressing, detoxifying, and enjoying a deep restorative sleep – and includes, amongst others, the introduction of regular wellness activities such as yoga, meditation and sound bath sessions.

Dusit has also introduced a new centralised corporate Customer Experience (CX) team tasked with ensuring that each of its properties is positioned to drive guest satisfaction by offering unique experiences beyond the standards and capabilities of the competition. Local collaborations and community-centric events and activities are central to this.

Despite the challenging business environment, Dusit has continued to expand its operations globally during the pandemic. Over the past two years, the company has opened nine new properties, signed an additional nine, and leveraged its experience in operating hotels to introduce property management and training services for leading condominium developers in Thailand.

Significant enhancements of its longest-running properties, such as Dusit Thani Hua Hin in Thailand, have also taken place in line with Dusit's vision to position them as dynamic and vibrant spaces that meet the lifestyle needs of all generations of travellers.

Notable openings since 2020 have included Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore, the first resort in Singapore with direct access to two championship golf courses, and ASAI Bangkok Chinatown, the first property under ASAI Hotels – Dusit's new affordable lifestyle brand designed to link millennial-minded travellers with authentic local experiences in the world's most vibrant neighbourhoods.

In terms of new signings, Dusit has continued to plant flags in new key destinations, including its first hotels in Japan (Dusit Thani Kyoto and ASAI Kyoto) and India (Dusit Princess Serviced Suites Kolkata). All three are slated to open next year.

The most significant property in Dusit's pipeline, the reimagined flagship Dusit Thani Bangkok, is also on the horizon – scheduled to open in mid-2024 as part of Dusit Central Park, a landmark USD 1.37 billion mixed-use development in the heart of the Thai capital. This highly anticipated project will also comprise ultra-luxury residences (Dusit Residences and Dusit Parkside), a state-of-the-art office tower, a high-end shopping mall, and a large roof park. All components are expected to open by mid-2025.

As for current operations, Dusit's property portfolio comprises 47 hotels operating under Dusit Hotels and Resorts (comprising five distinct brands) and 265 luxury villas under Elite Havens, the leading provider of luxury villa rentals in Asia, which Dusit acquired in September 2018. In total, this makes 312 properties (11,990 keys) operating across 16 countries. Dusit also has more than 50 hotels and resorts in the pipeline.

Elite Havens will be represented at ATM for the first time this year. This gives visitors a unique opportunity to discover more about the company's bespoke services and private sanctuaries in awe-inspiring locations across India, Indonesia, Japan, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and the Maldives.

Representatives from Dusit Hotels and Resorts Thailand, Dusit Thani Maldives, Dusit Thani Dubai, Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, Dusit Thani LakeView Cairo, and dusitD2 Naseem Resort Jabal Akhdar, Oman will also be available to explain more about their respective properties and Dusit's unique brand of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality.

The delegation will be led by Mr Prateek Kumar, Senior Vice President – Operations, Dusit International, and General Manager of the renowned Dusit Thani Dubai hotel.

"As travel restrictions continue to ease worldwide, we return to ATM this year with much excitement, and we're delighted to showcase how we have reimagined our services to position Dusit Hotels and Resorts for maximum value creation in the new normal," said Mr Kumar. "Alongside celebrating our strong presence in the MENA region, we look forward to highlighting our ongoing expansion, both internationally and across the lodging spectrum, as well as our exciting and unique developments in hospitality education, food business, property development, and hospitality-related services, which add to our competitive advantage."
