Technology Africa, organizer
of the annual Titans of Tech Award has disclosed that the 2019 edition will
focus on local content in ICT and infrastructure protection for socio economic
growth.





The focus was
disclosed in a statement in Lagos, issued and signed by Don Pedro Aganbi,
Managing Consultant, Technology Africa.





The statement, noted
that the event will holdin Lagos on
Friday, July 19, 2019 at the Oriental Hotels Victoria Island with a special Roundtable
on the growing importance of digital infrastructure protection in the quest to
further Socio-economic Growth.





It also revealed that
the theme of the Leadership Roundtable is   Cyber security, Local Content
Development, Big Data & Infrastructure Protection    Catalyst for Economic
Growth And National Development.”





According to the statement, an industry data claimed that Nigeria might have ceded about
70 per cent of the country's technology market to brands due to apathy for
locally made products. But, local content according is defined as the amount of
incremental value added or created in Nigeria through the utilisation of
Nigerian human and material resources for the provision of goods and services
in the ICT industry within acceptable quality and standards, to stimulate the
development of indigenous capabilities.





He argued that the widespread deployment of digital and other
communication infrastructure is creating an unprecedented increase in the
volume of data. It is this deluge of digital data that is now popularly called
‘big data.





 Data is the lifeblood and an essential ingredient for accountability
in the digital economy. As the economy got more connected, the need to
safeguard data, secure transactions and protect digital infrastructure grew
exponentially,   he added.





He explained that more and more people agree that the connected
economy is precipitated by the Internet and is rapidly changing the way we
work, socialize, create and share information. Indeed, it is continually
changing the way we organize the flow of people, ideas, and things around the
globe. 





The infrastructure, he said, that makes this possible,
undoubtedly is a strategic economic growth driver; and a catalyst for socioeconomic
development.





So naturally the protection of such infrastructure, particularly
of rapidly growing digital infrastructure, is akin to ensuring the survival of
the emerging digital society and sustaining economic growth, he revealed.





Aganbi made it known that several seasoned industry experts and
leaders are expected to attend and participate in the seminal leadership round
table session.
