2. Cybersecurity in National Policies: A Cornerstone for Digital Economies: The integration of cybersecurity into national policy frameworks is no longer optional but a necessity. The conference will touch on Rwanda's strides in enacting data protection laws and developing comprehensive cybersecurity strategies. Attendees will gain insights into how cybersecurity policy can be effectively woven into the fabric of national governance and business strategies, ensuring a secure digital future for citizens and enterprises alike.

3. Embracing Collaborative Cybersecurity Approaches: In our interconnected world, cybersecurity challenges cross borders and sectors. The RISE Conference emphasizes the need for a collaborative approach to cyber risks. Sessions will focus on fostering international cooperation, with particular attention to protecting vulnerable online populations, such as children, and combating emerging cyber threats. This collaborative ethos is critical for developing a unified front against cyber adversaries.

"Following the steps of previous successful RISE events hosted in Morocco in 2017, Kenya in 2018, and South Africa in 2022, we are excited to be working with RICTA.  Together, we will co-host and bring RISE to Rwanda in 2024.”
