VB2017 video: The state of cybersecurity in Africa: Kenya

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Mar 1, 2018

IT security, or the lack thereof, affects Internet users around the world, and though many of the issues we face are global, there is a noticeable difference in the threats faced in various countries and regions, as well as in the ways they are dealt with.

It is thus no coincidence that we strive to make the Virus Bulletin conference is a truly global event.

At VB2017 in Madrid, Tyrus Kamau from Euclid Consultancy in Nairobi, Kenya – who is one of the organisers of the annual AfricaHackOn event – spoke about the state of security in Kenya.

Today, we have uploaded the video of Tyrus's talk to our YouTube channel.

Don't forget that the call for papers for the next VB conference (Montreal, 3-5 October) is currently open and will close on 18 March!
