The cybercrime figures continue to rise in Africa, especially when there’s an increasing demand for work-from-home in 2021. Experts suggest that the threat actors can explore more ways to take advantage of vulnerabilities in consumer-grade home networks. While the use of ransomware has increased in popularity, many organisations depend on taking a number of actions: creating employee awareness of cyber risks, making use of security and threat intelligence, protecting against internal threats, to name a few.

With this in mind, the 3rd Edition of CyFrica is gathering over 2000 IT and cyber security leaders including CISOs, CTOs, CIOs and heads of cyber security from 350+ public and private enterprises across the African sub-continent, along with the support of 30+ top influential speakers and 20+ global cyber security solution providers – all with a focus on ‘creating a cyber safe Africa’.

African countries are brimming with potential as investment in technology infrastructure is seen as a very important catalyst for economic and social transformation in the region. This opens doors for an increasing number of cyber risks which can become an obstacle in the path of the total digital transformation in these countries.

For instance, growing penetration of IoT and the increased reliance on social media due to COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a notable increase in cybercriminal activity and capability in the region. According to recent reports, phishing and ransomware attacks will continue to be top concerns for this year.

It is of utmost importance for leaders from the cyber security industry from all over Africa come together on one platform to understand the need-of-the-hour for organisations across verticals.
