About this Event

Technology and cyberspace are key enablers of Africa’s agenda 2063, Kenya’s Vision 2030 coupled with the current big 4 agenda on Manufacturing, Food security and Health which aims at using technology and innovation to transform Kenya into an industrialized and secure middle-income country. Given the role of ICT in Africa’s rapid economic growth, cybersecurity breaches and attacks have the potential to slow down economic development and growth. It is urgent and important to drive spirited conversation on Africa’s Industrial Control Systems security. This systems are critical systems that need special attention against cyber threat.

The automation of industrial systems has steadily gaining momentum while business demands continuous improvements in the efficiency of production process, thus the depth of IT penetration and system connectivity grows continuously. The industrial facilities have been connected to corporate networks and are frequently managed remotely over the network. However, with standing benefits, these new technologies have brought about new threats into the world of industrial automation, and these new threats came as a surprise. The Industrial Control Systems (ICS) in place today were designed to operate for decades, and many of them were developed without any serious regard to operation technology security. Single cyber-attack on the operation system can cause greater damage to the economy and even cause death.
