1 Breakout Session B: Cyber Security and Cybercrime Trends in Africa

2 Global Forum for Cyber Expertise Awareness Initiative The African Union, Symantec, and the U.S. Department of State committed to develop a comprehensive report that presents detailed technical data on cybersecurity and cybercrime trends in Africa. The Goal: To gain a comprehensive view of the major occurrences of cyber incidents affecting organizations and individuals in the territory of AU Member States. Governments and other interested parties can then utilize this information to strengthen prevention and response mechanisms to confront the diverse range of cyber threats. 2

6 Africa s IT Infrastructure Driving Digitization Africa s internet is already integrally connected to Europe s, especially Mediterranean countries This connection will only grow stronger as more undersea cables connect more of Africa. Mobile internet connections most common But connectivity and cost are still significant obstacles 6

7 Cybercrime As IT sector grows, cybercrime grows: Malware on the rise Botnets Hacktivism Spearphishing and Spam Ransomware Institutional Capacity to Fight Cybercrime Few cybercrime laws Disparity in capacity among countries Legacy technology Low level of awareness 7

15 Government Cybersecurity Partnership Program Europol s Cyber Crime Centre (EC3) In October 2014 we signed an MOU to cooperate on cybercrime investigations and information sharing. We are currently working together on joint cybercrime investigations. Organization of American States (OAS) In May 2014 we entered into a partnership to develop a report that assessed the state of cybersecurity in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is regularly referenced and has lead to numerous business and thought leadership opportunities. International Telecommunication Union (ITU) In June 2014 we entered into an agreement to share strategic cyber threat information and to co-brand the ISTR that is distributed to government leaders in all 193 Member States and more than 700 private sector members around the world. Korea National Police Agency (KNPA) In October 2013 we signed an MOU to cooperate on cybercrime investigations and information sharing. African Union In April 2015, through the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE), Symantec entered into a partnership with the African Union and the U.S. Department of State to develop a comprehensive report to assess the state of cybersecurity in Africa. 15

16 Breakout Questions 1). In many ways, Africa is where the United States, Europe and parts of Asia were years ago. They are at the beginning of an internet boom. What lessons learned could be passed along? Where should they start in securing their infrastructure and fighting cybercrime? 2). Multi-national organizations with experiences that span countries and jurisdictions often have a wealth of practical experience that will be beneficial to cyber strategy formulation and capacity building programs. However, trust in international companies is still an issue in many countries where cybersecurity is concerned. How can these trust issues be overcome? 16
