Africa’s Largest Cyber Defence Yet

Plans are underway for Africa’s largest Cyber Defence Summit. The cyber security gathering dubbed Cyfence Africa is scheduled for 9-10 July 2018 at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Nairobi, Kenya.

The Government of Kenya through the Ministry of ICT is the Summit’s official host. The Dubai-based business facilitation company, Naseba and the Kenya-based Africa Cyber Space Network – a premier international cyber protection Network that is at the forefront in Africa’s Cyber Security protection initiative are the Summit’s official co-organisers.

The Summit is organised on the appreciation that Technology is becoming a key economic enabler for African nations and with the acknowledgement that it is imperative to address the challenges of cyber security through a collaborative cyber defence and to protect our critical infrastructures.
