Cyber security increase in Uganda

Security services provider Summit Consulting Limited says an increase of 40 cases is too significant a number given that police has not deliberately put a direct mechanism for any victim of cyber crime to report. On the other hand, government has prioritised investment in cyber security training and equipment at police and Ministry of Information and Communication Technology.

”The more the people go online, the more you expect a lot of mistakes because the attack vector increases so somebody has more people to attack. But also, there is generally no nationwide strategy for creating awareness to managing the cybercrime,” Mr. Mustapha Mugisa, chief executive officer Summit Consulting Limited, says.
