Marrakech will host Maroc IT (MIT) from November 15 to 17

They will be more than 200 IT decision-makers from large Moroccan companies and administrations to participate in the third edition of MIT. Infobip CEO Imane Rifki hailed the efforts of the organizers to bring together Morocco’s leading IT companies in a “promising” and “dedicated to IT” event.

By organizing B2B meetings, MIT gives “the opportunity to discover the best IT operators in the market”, said Rifki.

The event features a series of roundtables and workshops focusing on cloud management, cybersecurity, development operations (DevOps), big data and artificial intelligence.

As a reminder, at the end of October, Morocco hosted a similar event in Marrakech. The AUSIM conference titled “Digital Nation: Unleash the Potential” drew attendance from IT operators across the country.

The event highlighted Morocco’s digitization efforts and the government’s ambition to introduce e-government solutions, with a view to facilitating administrative procedures for citizens and residents. While digitization seems to be a normal step in the development of the country, concerns about data privacy have been discussed among policymakers and the general public.

Despite national efforts to neutralize cyberattacks, concerns about the country’s cybersecurity preparedness persist, with some reports highlighting the country as one of the least cybersecure countries in the world.

In 2021, Morocco partnered with Israel’s National Cybersecurity Directorate to foster cooperation in research and development and knowledge transfer.
