23 Mar 11th edition of Cybersecurity Summit: 5-6 May 2022
The world moving towards digitalisation has stirred the need to create a framework with strong defence against cyber threats globally. Digitalisation, despite rendering a novel platform for socio-economic development, has also opened the doors for cyber attacks, data breach and many more. With such occurring risks, countries have the responsibility to ensure that the citizens, governments and businesses are protected from cybercrime.
Cybersecurity in Africa
Independent research carried out in South Africa, Kenya and Zimbabwe to evaluate evolving cyber security threats in Africa concluded that there has been a significant increase in risk from cybercrime for enterprises across these regions.
Increased interconnectedness brings with it its own challenges. Africa has realised it is susceptible to cyber attacks and risks due to vulnerabilities to its information systems and digital infrastructure, which exposes them to issues concerning cyber security.
The African Union Commission has initiatives identifying cybersecurity as priority as part of ‘Agenda 2063’ for Transforming Africa. The focus of the commission will benefit individuals, institutions and nation-states by guaranteeing data protection and safety online.
Through cyber security best practices, management protocols and awareness of the vulnerability to threats, organisations will be able to enhance their cyber security framework and defend against cyber attacks.
