With the rollout of 5G in Kenya, cyber criminals have got a new turf to exploit. As a country that’s adept at digital financial services, hacking attacks on its financial systems surged to 444 million by June 2022.
Even the National Kenya Computer Incident Response Team Coordination Center (KE-CIRT/CC) detected 143,040,599 cyber threat events during July to September 2021 which was a 268.883% increase from the 38,776,699 threat events detected in the previous period, April – June 2021.
In the quest to mitigate the emerging threat landscape, the Government of Kenya also launched the National Cybersecurity Strategy in 2022 with an objective to bring a more supportive regulatory framework for cybersecurity.
To facilitate robust collaborations between the public & private sectors, all the while featuring the best-in-class cybersecurity experts, Tradepass is hosting CyFrica in Kenya on 18 – 19 July 2023. The event will attract 600+ pre-qualified cybersecurity experts including the Heads of Information Security, Risk, Compliance, Forensics and Cyber Law from the leading public and private enterprises across the country.
With the country taking colossal leaps to incorporate digitalization into every aspect of society, the move has exposed the public & private sector to major security risks. Cybercrime has emerged as the biggest obstacle to Kenya’s surging digital economy that is expected to generate 9.24% of its total GDP by 2025.
The scope of the crimes is going beyond financials and encapsulates data loss, intellectual property theft, damage to brand reputation and a lot more. As a result, the need for an efficient cybersecurity framework has become more critical than ever.
