Cybercrime already cost the world $6 Trillion in 2020 90% of African businesses are operating “without the necessary cybersecurity protocols in place” - Interpol. Are you ready?

597,028,294 US dollars is the projected cumulative annual cost of cyber security attacks across East African Community (EAC) countries for 2020

43% of all cyber-attacks are aimed at small businesses - according to a report by MTN Kenya.

Organizations in Kenya are projected to su¬ffer the greatest amount of annual losses both in total as well as a percent of GDP at US$307 million and 0.3% respectively.

Countries in the EAC have been losing approximately 0.26% of GDP from cybercrimes since 2017.

The Communications Authority of Kenya reported a 47.3% increase in cybercrimes in the past year reaching 37.1 million separate attacks officially reported in Kenya alone suggesting that cybercrimes are growing faster in East Africa than elsewhere. This elevated cybercrime growth rate is likely compounded as other reports from MTN in Kenya suggest that nearly 90% of cybercrimes are not being reported.
