strategies for the African Government Authorities; National security, Cyber Threats and

Governance: The Rise of Security Culture in Africa; Zero Trust Networks & Resilient ICT

Re-Budgeting for Corporate sectors; Cyber Security trends and crucial security strategies for

sectors and enterprises and much more.


The African Prospect


The Africa cybersecurity market size is anticipated to witness strong growth over the

coming years on account of rapid growth in internet users combined with growing

dependability on e-governance, IoT, commercial services and social networking.

This is also bolstered by an increasing number of cybercrime within the country that have,

unfortunately, been seeing a surge in pushing governments to support sectors such as

telecom, retail, finance and health to help amplify the demand for enterprise cybersecurity

products, services and consumer software in the country.


“Cybersecurity landscape is rapidly changing & evolving in Africa“ stated Naresh Kumar, Director - Regional Sales Development at emt Distribution META. He further added, “Find, Fix, & Protect - Take Control Of Your Network and It’s our ongoing efforts to educate, position and protect our partners IT ecosystem with Progress and emt Cyber security and ICT solutions.”

What next for the continent?

Enterprises and governments are leading an increased effort to strengthen the internet

infrastructure and improve the solutions and aid provided by the software industry in a bid to

protect its citizens from cyber attacks in the future.

Apart from this, factors such as the need for unified cyber solutions, increased internet

subscriptions, data disclosure mandates, enhanced enterprise mobility, and increased

spending patterns on security forums are boosting the demand for cyber security solutions in

the nation.


Cyber security leaders play an important role in today’s business. They have to put out a

strong message of influence as security is a culture and business should become a part of

this security culture”, stated Mithun Shetty, CEO, Trescon.
