Establishing Critical Infrastructure

He continued “Our Managed Soc plays a pivotal role in enhancing National Security. It serves as an early waning system, constantly monitoring networks and systems for unusual activities and potential threats. In an era where cyberattacks can cause significant damage to our economy, critical infrastructure, and even national security, having a reliable partner like CyberSOC Africa® ensures we can identify and respond to these threats in a timely and effective manner.” concludes Brian   

“The biggest cyber threats in Africa include digital extortion, ransomware, online scams such as phishing, and business email compromise. The lack of cybersecurity standards exposes online services to major risks,” said CyberSOC Africa CEO Shai Nuni. 

 “As African countries move to incorporate digital infrastructure into all aspects of society – including government, business and banking, it is vital to promote a strong cybersecurity framework. The Kenyan office will also serve Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia by bolstering local cybersecurity capabilities.”

The Kenyan government recognizes the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector as a fundamental contributor and enabler in the realization of Vision 2030, transforming Kenya into a digital economy.


“We recognize the notable achievements made in the digital transformation landscape. However, Kenya faces escalating cybersecurity challenges and risks that jeopardize national security and our digital transformation agenda. The heightened digital connectedness renders Kenya more susceptible to cyber-criminal activities globally,” said Eng. John Tanui, Principal Secretary State Department for Information and Digital Economy. Eng. Tanui was represented by State Department for Information and Digital Economy Assistant Director Juma Modie.

“The expanded digitalization programs, coupled with investments in digital and data infrastructure, present new challenges. It is imperative that we renew our efforts to enhance Kenya’s capacity and capability, ensuring our ability to support the growth of the digital economy.” 

In alignment with Kenya’s Vision 2030 and the National Cyber Security Strategy 2022-2027, CyberSOC Africa® strategically extends its services into Kenya, fortifying the nation’s cybersecurity fabric.
