The worldwide migration to the digital era has brought about numerous positive aspects, transforming this generation into the
information age and giving birth to the new economy. Over and above the ‘traditional’ computing, such innovations like mobile
banking, digital broadcasting, cloud computing and may others have been embraced. The downside of this development is the rise
in cyber-crime and the general cyber security threats. This calls for organisations in general and ICT practitioners in particular to
adopt proactive approaches in combating these ills, and move towards a secure digital future.
In light of this, the Computer Society of Zimbabwe’s annual Business School will this year run under the theme “Towards a Secure
Digital Future.” This is in sync with the CSZ’s year focus on information security and the school tackles the broad aspects of
information security but delving in depth on digital forensics as a tool of identifying and combating possible security breaches.
