When it comes to cyber security, SMEs in Africa face a particular set of challenges. They may have limited resources and a lack of in-house expertise, but they are still vulnerable to cyber threats that can compromise their operations, financial well-being, and reputation. That’s where our cyber security services come in.
Our foundational services are designed to protect your business from a range of threats. They will also help you understand and prioritise risks, identify and remediate vulnerabilities, and meet compliance requirements. With these services, you can rest assured that your business is well-protected, even in the face of an ever-changing threat landscape.
Risk Assessments will help your business identify and prioritise its most critical assets and understand the threats they face. Our security experts will conduct a thorough analysis of your network, systems and applications to determine the level of risk and identify vulnerabilities that need to be addressed.
Vulnerability Management goes hand-in-hand with compliance. It is the process of identifying vulnerabilities and managing key risks associated with your software and digital systems. Any company that relies on a complex IT environment needs to know where potential weaknesses lie within its infrastructure. To minimise these weaknesses, frequent vulnerability scanning and detailed reporting cycles need to be completed.
Compliance Management is the process of maintaining systems, such as computer hardware and software, so that they adhere to regulations and standards. This ensures that they perform in a consistent manner to protect valuable data and confidential information. It also prevents undocumented changes from taking place, which can cause system downtime, instability or complete failure. We can define and list organisational risks, conduct continuous audits and implement best practices in cyber security.
User Awareness Training
User Awareness Training is designed to empower employees with the knowledge and skills needed to protect the business from cyber threats. By educating employees about phishing, password security and other best practices, we can help them make better decisions and reduce the risk of a security breach.

Why is cyber security so important?
According to an Interpol report, more than 90% of Africa organisations have inadequate cyber security in place.
1875 attacks per week
Africa experienced the highest volume of attacks globally with 1875 weekly attacks per organisation in 2022
What are the consequences
- Business interruptions that cause loss of continuity
- Reduced productivity and a greater burden on IT teams
- Reputational damage
- Loss of revenue
- Regulatory sanctions and penalties
Over the years, companies have changed their attitudes towards investment in cyber security. Initially, it was comparable to taking out insurance with only a slim chance of being attacked, hacked or breached. Nowadays, it is one of the best investments to make amid a sharp rise in cyber attacks across the globe.
