With 500 million internet users, Africa holds great potential for digital growth and this overwhelming figure is just 38% of the continent’s mammoth population. As per Interpol, the continent witnessed a significant spike in cybercrime post COVID-19 where the online banking platforms had to endure a 238% rise in cyberattacks in 2020. Consequently, Africa and Middle East’s cybersecurity market has been projected to reach $23.4 billion by 2023.
In line with Africa’s commitment towards building the next-gen cyber vault, Tradepass is thrilled to host the 4th edition CyFrica at The Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi, Kenya on 28 – 29 June 2022. The event will attract 1500+ pre-qualified cybersecurity experts (in-person & virtual) including the Heads of Information Security, Risk, Compliance, Forensics and Cyber Law from the leading public and private enterprises across Africa.
With 60% of the African population under 25 years, the continent is witnessing rampant growth with technology adoption. But this development is getting entwined with a rich cybercrime landscape and 90% of the African enterprises are functioning without a definite cybersecurity protocol.
It’s no surprise that cybercrimes reduced Africa’s GDP by 10% in 2021. In the aftermath, Africa and Middle East’s cybersecurity market is projected to reach $23.4 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 11.9%.
