Liquid C2, a business of Cassava Technologies, a pan-African technology group, opened the doors of its first Cyber Security Fusion Centre (CSFC) in Nairobi, Kenya, making this the second centre of its kind in Africa.
The last few years have seen a rapid acceleration in cyberattacks, with Africa squarely in the crosshairs of cybercriminals. As businesses continue to evolve digitally, so has the scale of cyberthreats. According to the Global Cybersecurity Index (2021), only 29 of 54 African countries have introduced cybersecurity legislation. In addition, the Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) reported that cyberthreats in the country have doubled in the 2022 financial year, starting July 2021.
This centre will prove invaluable in efforts to ensure Kenyan customers have access to real-time intelligence-driven alerts and advisory services, enabling them to mitigate potential threats timeously. Customers can focus on their critical business needs while cybersecurity requirements are managed constantly with the most cost-efficient and effective approach.
Clients in Kenya will encounter new cybersecurity services that leverage Microsoft Defender and Microsoft Sentinel – all delivered and constantly monitored, without interruption. In addition, Liquid C2 has partnered with Xcitium to offer solutions specifically for small and medium businesses requiring Security Operation Centre (SOC) services without investing in highly skilled resources or Enterprise SOC services they cannot afford.Click below to share this article
