Layer3’s BlackSentry to hold Data Analytics event in Abuja

Abuja, (May 16, 2017)

BlackSentry, Layer3’s division focused on Cybersecurity and Data Analytics, will be holding a Big Data workshop in Abuja. The workshop aims to help organizations, especially government agencies, strategically position themselves to use data analytics to drive change, deliver value and increase public satisfaction.

The event which holds at the Transcorp Hilton on the 7th of June, 2017, is in partnership with SAS, the global leader in Big Data and Analytics, and has over 30 federal government agencies billed to attend.  Discussions will center on how the public sector and security agencies can use high performance analytics to tap into large amounts of historical and present data in a structured, systematic and scientific way, generating valuable insights as a result.

According to Paul Umoru, Layer3’s Head of Cybersecurity and Data Analytics business, “We will be exploring how to use visual and predictive analytics in process efficiency, innovation, fraud prevention and national security so as to better identify trends and patterns buried in government data and identify opportunities to turn information into action.”

The workshop presents an opportunity in initiating service delivery reforms within the Nigerian public sector amidst the current economic indices.
