CloudNAIROBI – KENYAN organisations have been alerted to the need of designing and implementing resilient information security infrastructure.This is in the wake of global malware outbreaks that have crippled networks and sent shockwaves across the world.Patrick Ndegwa, SEACOM’s Business Sales Lead, gave the warning on Thursday during the SEACOM-CIO Executive Breakfast in Nairobi.“New information security threats will keep emerging,” he said.
Ndegwa said the recent ransomware attacks were a stark reminder of the complex security risks organisations will face in the coming years.“We believe that by embracing enhanced technologies such as cloud computing Kenyan
organizations will have access to an affordable but effective solution to deal with rising cyber threats. This is the future and we need to embrace it,” said Ndegwa.SEACOM, a Pan-African telecom enabler, has invested in the best information security solutions and keep up with the latest security best practices and cyber-threats.“Firms who have signed up are already reaping the benefits of technological economies of scale by sharing the cloud solutions with other businesses who sign up for the same services,” said Ndegwa.
