Cloud And Cyber Security: The Heart Of Organisational Resilience

Cybersecurity is the process of securing networks, systems and any other digital infrastructure from malicious attacks. Malicious attacks vary, some attacks my consist of phishing scams whilst others are full on wars against the victims systems.

With cybercrime damages projected to exceed a staggering $6 trillion by 2021, it is no mystery as to why banks, tech companies, hospitals, government agencies and every other sector are investing in cybersecurity infrastructure to protect their business practices and the millions of customers that trust them with their data.

For there to be data in the first place, there must be connectivity. Liquid Intelligent Technologies are pioneering connectivity in Kenya, by bridging the gap between individuals who are connected and those who are not. The company is addressing the user gap by creating several programs for online training, and pairing this with working together with regulatory officers.

“Connectivity is critical and remains the bedrock for any data transformation”, explained Richard Were, the Head of Products and Solution Management at Liquid Intelligent Technologies.” Liquid’s strategy is to address the connectivity gap by having a seamless network across the region, this guarantees faster access to data”, he continued.


The cyber security concerns in Kenya included; 74% concern usage access and management, 62% lack of security controls and 59% data loss and recovery. This goes to show that Security programs will need to continue evolving new defenses as cyber-security professionals identify new threats and new ways to combat them.

Just as defensive driving improves the safety of other motorists on the road, or staying home when you are sick prevents spreading the flu around your office, maintaining proper cyber security measures on you infrastructure affects the rest of the online community.
