Cybersecurity firm CyberSOC Africa has expanded to Kenya as part of its pan-African cybersecurity expansion plans.
The new office will promote cybersecurity awareness and education as well as provide resources and tools to keep government agencies and organisations safe from cyber attacks.
“We are excited to open the new cybersecurity office and to continue our work to keep the African continent safe online,” said Nir Kunik, CyberSOC chairman.
“The new office will be a key part in efforts to promote cybersecurity awareness,” he continued.
CyberSOC provides threat detection and response, threat intelligence, security awareness training, and compliance assistance, helping businesses archive compliance with relevant and up-to-date cybersecurity regulations and standards.
“Our managed SOC plays a pivotal role in enhancing national security. It serves as an early warning system, constantly monitoring networks and systems for unusual activities and potential threats,” said Brian Mang’oli, regional sales manager for East Africa.
“As African countries move to incorporate digital infrastructure into all aspects of society, it is vital to promote a strong cybersecurity framework,” Shai Nuni, CEO of CyberSOC, added.
Apart from Kenya, the office will also serve other East African countries, including Ethiopia and Somalia.
“We recognize the notable achievements maden in the digital transformation landscape. However, Kenya faces escalating cybersecurity challenges and risks that jeopardize national security and digital transformation agenda.” said John Tanui, Principal Secretary, States Department for Information and Digital Economy.
