This episode of the Tech Legal Matters podcast is a recording from the World Cyber Security Summit - Africa Edition 2020. The event was successful in bringing in fresh narratives, innovative ideas, and awareness on key areas such as cyber threat intelligence, data governance, data privacy, and cyber regulations across Africa.

The Communications Authority of Kenya’s first-quarter report for 2018/19 shows us that the National Cybersecurity Centre detected 3.82 million cyber threats, a rise from 3.46 million reported from the last quarter. Within the review period, the banking sector remained the most targeted industry followed by government institutions. Latest statistics from the National Kenya Computer Incident Response Team Coordination Centre (KE-CIRT-CC).

In this episode, we get to hear from Richard Kiarie, Principal ICT Officer/Head, Policy and Research Unit, Ministry of ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs, on how Kenya's government approaches national cybersecurity.
