A project of SEC-Consult
Deutschland GmbH and the deutsche investitions- und entwicklungsgesellschaft
started in 2017 targeting to build Cyber Security capacity across East Africa - Kenya,
Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania.
With a goal of creating strategic partnership to bridge the gap in the Cyber space withing the East African community, trainers accross East Africa were picked, trained and they then went ahead to train more in the respective countries.
The project was flagged off in Nairobi, Kenya and over a period of 3 months, it was closed having trained over 60 people across E.Africa. A report of the Cyber4Growth project was issued at the United States International University-Africa where different stake holders from different parts were in attendance.
Our main mission was to develop Cyber Security and build
up necessary IT Security Standards in the region with know-how and new approaches. The
first step on this mission was achieved by launching the Cyber4Growth project on 14th
Jan 2019. The project provided simulated training to IT professionals enabling them gain
skills on how to detect and avert cyber-attacks.
From the project we established that people want more of such simulated trainings that will provide more challenging situations to invoke new thought processes in cyber defense methods.
