Nigerian management consultancy Phillips Consulting has held a Chief Information Officer Breakfast Meeting to discuss opportunities in the country in the domains of Industry 4.0 integration and cybersecurity. The event was held at the Eko Hotel in Lagos, and featured a number of illustrious speakers.   

The firm announced last week that it would host the event, which is being organised in the context of an increasingly digitalising market in Nigeria. Much like the rest of Africa, Nigeria’s population is increasingly connected in the digital sphere, which presents opportunities and risks alike.

While a number of businesses have begun embracing the latest in technology to enhance their business operations, the new online market is susceptible to a cyber attacks due to accidental disclosure of data. Phillips Consulting sought to address this dichotomous scenario at the meeting.

A number of leaders from the public and private sectors were present at the meeting, including Deputy Director of the National Security Advisor Bala Fakandy, Principal Service Delivery Manager at Microsoft Felix Nwoshu and Digital Advisor at Microsoft Daniel Adeyemo. 

The speakers addressed key concerns surrounding the wave of digital transformations in Nigeria, which has led to the rapid growth of its digital services and cybersecurity market. Phillips Consulting itself has been gradually expanding its suite of services to better suit evolving market trends.

The firm’s Managing Director Robert Taiwo said, “Through its Digital Technology Consulting practice, PCL possesses deep industry and business expertise. Coupled with Microsoft’s market leading technology, in the areas of Cloud Computing, Cyber Security and Data Analytics, we can jointly provide our customers with a set of business aligned technology solutions that are perfectly in sync with a Digital 4.0 economy.”

Partner for Digital and Technology at the firm Jason Ikegwu added, “This partnership will allow us drive digital transformation and, ultimately, growth, in ambitious, forward-looking organisations. For a maiden event, turnout was great and that’s exciting for us because it signals genuine interest in these conversations and the direction in which they lead.”
